Students respond to Huckabee

Posted By on Wed, Apr 14, 2010 at 9:12 AM

Mike Huckabee recently gave an interview to a group of students from the College of New Jersey in which he compared homosexuality to drug use, incest and polygamy. After the article was published, Huck PAC released a statement saying the students had chosen to "grossly distort his views," and expressed hope the students would "find a career other than journalism."

Yesterday the students fired back.

It is unfortunate that in the wake of his interview with The Perspective, Gov. Mike Huckabee has resorted to ad hominem attacks intended to cast doubt upon our credibility as a publication. This sort of desperate tactic is not surprising, however; politicians in damage-control mode often stoop to attacking the media so they might avoid being accountable for the substance of their remarks.

It is telling that nowhere in his statement did Huckabee suggest he was misquoted in the article, and rightfully so; we have the audio and transcripts to prove that everything reported is accurate.
