The PBS NewsHour is no longer an accurate source of information on immigration but is now simply a Soviet-style propaganda source. The latest example is the Gwen Ifill "report" on the Swift packing raid, which featured two sequential guests.
The first was Mark Lauritsen of the United Food and Commercial Workers union. He basically cried and whined his support for illegal immigration, his support for "comprehensive immigration reform", and his attempts to pass the buck. Ifill did not ask him questions in any way tough enough to blow his various statements out of the water.
OK, fine I think, hopefully they'll have someone on the other side blow both of them out of the water. Let's go to the transcript:
GWEN IFILL: And now to Julie Myers, assistant secretary for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
JULIE MYERS, Immigration and Customs Enforcement: Well, I agree. We need comprehensive immigration reform.
Note to PBS: this is how things are handled in totalitarian regimes: a "debate" between people on the same side. If you wish to have any credibility, at the very least have a third person available that actually supports our immigration laws and will let your viewers know what's really going on. Without that person, you're misleading your viewers and broadcasting propaganda.
