John Quinones/ABC News: brazen illegal immigration-supporting hack

John Quinones of ABC Nightly News offers "Pear Crop Rots as Field Hands Kept from Crossing Border", a brazen pro-cheap labor slab of propaganda that reports on what growers say without offering even the slightest bit of contradictory information. It is so biased it could have been - and might have been - written by the growers themselves. It even includes a grower being emotional:

If the migrants don't show up for the next harvest, Ivicevich said he'll have to destroy entire orchards that were planted more than a century ago. ..."That makes them 120 years old," he said, in tears. "So, I mean, how could I take that tree out?"

What's worse is that the grower's statements seem to be to a good extent related to factors other than the lack of illegal and/or cheap labor. See Pearanoia - Latest Scam From The Cheap Labor Lobby, which links to this SacBee article that - unlike virtually all other articles discussing this topic - at least tried to fact-check grower statements.

If John Quinones wants to do some real reporting, perhaps he can start by looking into the forces that pushed and approved his "report".

Methinks a troll has hijacked a persona.

Yes, I found that comment suspicious as well.

"Jake", is that really you, because the tone sure doesn't fit the profile I envision when I review your (?) blog content. Methinks a troll has hijacked a persona.

"propaganda ... without offering even the slightest bit of contradictory information"

This is a fitting description of lone wack blog

Recall that the other side is promoted by virtually the entire MSM(Lou Dobbs being the major exception), the leadership of both major parties, Big Business, the big Foundations, Big Religion, the ideological left,most of Big Labor and the leftist-dominated(at least when it comes to social issues-including immigration) universities. All the established powers are on the other side.

If he has a lot of 100 year old pear trees, maybe he should harvest them, and not dishonorably and deceptively cry over it.
No one is ever going to show sympathy for the net taxpayer on these regulated media outlets, and especially not in the context of lobbying for more
subsidy-grabbing pickers of the illegal persuasion.
