On yesterday's CBS Evening News, Kelly Cobiella offered a slab of pro-illegal immigration propaganda entitled "Teens Lobby Hill For New Immigration Bill" (link) about the two illegal alien brothers pushing for the anti-American DREAM Act. See the story from Tim Padgett of Time for the background on the case, and see the other posts in this category for other very similar articles promoting that Act.
If Cobiella were a real journalist she would have dealt with this story from a public policy perspective rather than the human interest treatment that she gave it, including trying her best to make the viewers sympathetic to their cause.
It also includes this ludicrous statement:
"To help these brothers, but more importantly to help so many others, because we finally put a face on the problem," Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., told the teens.
Supporters of the DREAM Act have planted dozens of reports "finally put[ting] a face on the problem" for years. In Cobiella's defense, she does include half a sentence and a quote from Brian Bilbray indicating that some might actually oppose the Act, but in no case is this report anything other than propaganda.
