The Mainstream Media And The Surge In Illegal Border Crossings
Mickey Kaus asks on Twitter:
How will MSM hide/downplay the Amnesty Surge of illegal border crossings?j.mp/1798l7Y

The link is to the same Katie Pavlich story Brenda is discussing below: Exclusive: Illegal Border Crossings Double, Border Becomes Less Secure as Beltway Gets Close to Deal on Immigration Reform, Townhall, By Katie Pavlich, April 1, 2013. The reason it`s an exclusive is that nobody else is doing it.
Part of what the MSM can do to suppress this is refuse to do the same thing, and refuse to quote it. When I searched Google News for Katie Pavlich`s name, two of the results I got were Media Matters smears of her:
- Fox`s Katie Pavlich Baselessly Speculates That Napolitano Lied Under Oath About Operation Fast And Furious

When I searched for “border crosssings” I got a story that says “Resistance is useless”
- Study: Deportation doesn`t deter border crossings, AP, March 28, 2013
Odds of the press highlighting Obama`s miserable failure on the border they way they would have with Bush: low.
