Dennis Welch, Kos, Amanda Terkel, Steve Benen, Ben Smith, Ben Frumin smear Jan Brewer over quote - 06/02/10

... misinterpreted in an interview with the Arizona Republic (link) where she spoke about the names she's been called: "The Nazi comments . . . they are awful... Knowing that my father died fighting the Nazi regime in Germany, that I lost him when I was 11 because of that . . . and then to have them call me Hitler's daughter. It hurts. It's ugliness beyond anything I've ever experienced." If Noam...

"Panel of experts outline how Arizona immigration law works" - 05/17/10

The Arizona Republic asked five who are familiar with the new Arizona immigration law for their opinions on whether the law would allow police to simply stop people at will and ask their status, with two saying yes and three saying no (link): Three panelists said the initial reason for the contact must stem from some other suspected violation, such as speeding, drinking alcohol in a city park or...

Some Hispanic leaders not 100% happy with Sotomayor being Puerto Rican, not Mexican-American - 05/27/09

... Gonzalez and Erin Kelly of the Arizona Republic offer "Hispanics laud choice, but many hoped for a Mexican-American" (link). Considering that in Arizona there are, per the article, "1.6 million Latinos of Mexican ancestry, compared with 28,524 of Puerto Rican ancestry", one wonders what (if anything) Ben Smith was thinking when he earlier wrote that "Fierce opposition from the right could push...

Soros-linked Justice Strategies calls 287g program a "failure" (Joe Arpaio) - 03/04/09

Daniel Gonzalez of the Arizona Republic offers "Report: ICE program used by Arpaio a failure" (link): Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's continuing and controversial crackdown on illegal immigration and the federal program that lets him identify and arrest undocumented immigrants is a financial and public-safety failure, according to a new report. The program, known as 287 (g), has been...

Violent hate: protesters beat effigy of Sheriff Joe Arpaio (Isabel Garcia/Derechos Humanos) - 07/12/08

... Defender. Needless to say, the Arizona Republic downplays the violent protest ("Arpaio's appearance at Tucson bookstore draws protesters" by Blake Morlock, link), saying only that the protesters "also pummeled a pinata meant to resemble Arpaio". Morlock also quotes far-leftie Reverend John Fife, an associate of Reverend Robin Hoover of No More Deaths, another person who is/was collaborting...

Boycott Desert Schools Credit Union - 01/31/07

... might expect, JJ Hensley of the Arizona Republic doesn't provide any balance to the article by suggesting the major negative involved here: Desert Schools is profiting from behavior which is illegal, and it's horrible public policy to allow companies to profit from illegal activity. When a company finds a profit center, they tend to take actions to keep making a profit. That may put DS in the...

Arizona Republic almost does expose on Western Union - 03/19/06

Chris Hawley of the AZ Republic offers the somewhat surprising article "Wire firm a force in debate over immigration". It's surprising because in a rare move for the AZ Republic it comes close to reporting the actual truth. They come close to implying that Western Union and their parent company First Data are profiting off illegal immigration, are encouraging illegal immigration, and are...

"Illustrating folly" - 01/05/05

The Arizona Republic has an editorial (link) about "Illegal Immigration and Remittances For Dummies". I'm no psychologist, so I'm not going to try to figure it out: ...With this book, Mexican President Vicente Fox has unwittingly produced a powerful tool to undermine efforts by President Bush and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., to win congressional support for a guest...
