BJ Lawson gets tricked by a true free-enterprise entrepreuneur

By now, you've heard that BJ Lawson's claim that Morgan Freeman narrated one of his political advertisements is false. Whoever narrated the ad was not Morgan Freeman, who has denounced the Lawson ad.

The Lawson campaign says that it was tricked by a California-based media company that "approached the campaign and offered to produce an ad with Freeman".

I have no idea if Lawson's account is correct, but, it makes me kind of proud of my native state even after 30 years of living in North Carolina.

I'm also kind of tickled that Lawson was apparently tricked by just the sort of free-enterprise entrepreneur that he thinks should run free of government regulation.
