Network news biased in immigration coverage

It should come as no surprise to anyone that network news is horribly biased in favor of illegal immigration.

But the coverage of the recent federal court finding that President Obama’s illegal executive order was in fact illegal brought out the long knives from the corporate network shills:

Just shy of 24 hours after U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen halted President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty, the major broadcast networks displayed their palpable opposition to the ruling during their Tuesday night broadcasts, lamenting that it “dashes American dreams for millions of families under the threat of deportation” after Wednesday was set “to be a historic day for millions of illegal immigrants” when they could apply for legal status.

The three newscasts offered a minuscule 18 seconds highlighting those against Obama’s executive action (not including quotes from Hanen’s ruling) throughout their 5 minutes and 58 seconds of coverage.

Interesting that a network copy editor allowed the phrase “dashed American dreams” to describe a ruling that did not affect a single American citizen.

The networks were shameless in their praise for illegal alien lawbreakers and of course gave no coverage to the millions of Americans damaged by illegal immigration:

On the CBS Evening News, anchor Scott Pelley bemoaned that “tomorrow was supposed to be a historic day for millions of illegal immigrants” as “[t]hey would be able to begin to apply for legal status under immigration reform that President Obama implemented by executive action over the objections of Congress.” Pelley continued by telling viewers how that was not going to happen after “a federal judge’s ruling has now put all of that on hold.”

The increasingly smaller viewership of the network news was treated to all the illegal immigration sob stories that could be found:

NBC News senior White House correspondent Chris Jansing led off her segment from the view of victims, telling stories of two millennial-aged illegal immigrants who are affected by the ruling. Jansing fretted how one young woman’s “dream of working for the FBI may not come true” while another’s “future plan” of obtaining a Ph.D. “is at stake.”

She reported that Obama’s action in November “gave hope to them and more than 4 million other undocumented immigrants” but now are blocked by Hanen’s decision. Continuing the abysmally skewered coverage, a soundbite was heard from contributor Raul Reyes, who worried that the lives of those looking to apply for legal status “are on hold.”

In short, anyone looking for a fair and balanced view of illegal immigration will have to look somewhere else than the major broadcast networks who are just shills for the illegal immigration lobby.
