As pointed out before, the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform is funded by the government of Ireland and they're lobbying for a massive amnesty for illegal aliens.
And, they've not only got quite a propaganda push going, but they've found media sources willing to carry their water.
Yesterday we discussed this: Tyche Hendricks, S.F. Chronicle, offers timely pro-illegal immigration propaganda. That reporter didn't mention that the Lobby is funded by the Irish government, making that article quite clearly pro-illegal immigration propaganda.
Also providing coverage is Allen Martin of CBS 5 in 'Frisco: "'Illegal Irish' Campaign For Immigration Reform".
In his text, he doesn't mention the connection. There's a video report, the picture of which at the site features t-shirts with 'legalize the irish.org'. That's the site for the Lobby. I didn't watch the video, but if the connection wasn't mentioned in the text it's probably not there in the video.
Since Martin's email isn't provide, let's try Akilah Monifa, their Director of Communications: firstname.lastname@example.org Ask him or her whether Martin informed their viewers that they were watching foreign propaganda.
And, WNYC's Brian Lehrer show featured a segment on the Lobby. Let's ask him whether they disclosed the connection: email@example.com
