Tim Rutten on Lou Dobbs
Is Tim Rutten of the Los Angeles Times correct in his assesment of Lou Dobbs ("Lou Dobbs: bile across the border")? Rather than discussing Rutten's thoughts, here's a handy chart perhaps showing why the LAT would be so upset:
Dobbs: reports on backgrounds and affiliations of racial separatist groups and politicians who used to belong to said groups
LAT: covers up those politicians' backgrounds and affiliations
Dobbs: covered the mini-riot in Baldwin Park, reported on how an American was hit in the head by a counter-protester, reported on groups involved
LAT: covered for the groups involved, downplayed the attack, called ANSWER's LA affiliate an "antiwar and anti-racism group".
So, it's understandable how Rutten could be angry: Dobbs is showing his paper to be the propaganda rag it is.
