Re: Joe
Guzzardi`s Column:

Are Dishonest Journalists Inherently Dishonest?

For outrageously dishonest journalism, analyze this
September 10th story by

Washington Post
reporter S. Mitra Kalita, ”
for Legitimacy in the Immigrant Economy
(e-mail her


  1. Illegal alien #1, Edy Diaz, is smuggled into the country from
    Guatemala and is transported to safety with the help
    from a relative already in the U.S.

  1. Diaz shacks up with illegal alien #2, Rosa Guzman.  Both use fake

    social security numbers
    purchased from forgers
    to get jobs.

  1. Diaz`s cousin, Dimas Diaz allows his name to be used by Edy to “buy
    a $320,000 house.  Dimas is a member of the

    Service Employees International Union
    that has a
    long history of enrolling illegal alien workers.

  1. Said house is paid in part by housing other "immigrants"
    who appear to also be illegal.

  1. Edy Diaz and Guzman`s employer sponsors the now married couple
    with absolutely no penalties for anyone.

  1. The couple is rewarded with legal status and a path to

  1. Diaz and Guzman have two

    anchor babies
    , Edy Jose and Gabriela.

What is wrong with this picture?

Among the many crimes not addressed by Kalita are:

  • Why weren`t Dimas
    and the illegal aliens charged with felony fraud in
    their federally funded

    mortgage application

  • Why do we reward
    illegals for breaking our laws?

How much more dishonest can a reporter be than Kalita,
an obvious supporter of lawbreaking?

comments: Currently
the president of the

South Asian Journalists Association
Kalita has also been the Post`s the “immigrant
business reporter
” since March 2005.

Kalita, her

personal family history

not withstanding, is obligated to follow the same

ethical reporting codes

as all other journalists in her stories—immigration
related or otherwise. Kalita is not entitled to a free
pass, as she obviously thinks she is, to editorialize
for more liberal immigration laws simply because she is
South Asian.
