From the NYT, a fairly long article entitled:
Why American Workers Without Much Education Are Being Hammered

by Neil Irwin

Whenever I see an article with a headline like “Why American Workers Without Much Education Are Being Hammered,” I immediately CTRL-F to see if the character string “immigra” appears anywhere in the piece, because that allows me to instantly assess the rigor and honesty of the author. About 80 to 90% of the time, the words “immigration” or “immigrant” don’t appear.

You can try it yourself with this article. It’s fun!

And depressing.
