DHS uses Giffords shooting to push loose borders political agenda (Jared Lee Loughner, American Renaissance) - 01/09/11

... above), Patrik Jonsson of the Christian Science Monitor offered "American Renaissance: Was Jared Lee Loughner tied to anti-immigrant group?" (link). While it includes AmRen's denial and a "hate" monitor questioning whether there could be a link, the article also smears by asking the titular question and not, for instance, by questioning the DHS over what they were thinking.

DiverseTea: tea parties to fight charges of racism... by enabling far-left concepts - 09/13/10

... with reporters sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor. Obviously, this isn't the right way to go about things. The Democrats - and especially the far-left - engage in "diversity" for its own sake and are obsessive about bean-counting, quotas, and so on. Shouldn't a rightwing movement stand in opposition to such far-left concepts? Shouldn't a rightwing movement try to undercut those concepts...

Obama, Democrat, far-left opposition to Arizona immigration law giving comfort to Mexico - 06/23/10

Sara Miller Llana of the Christian Science Monitor lets us know that "Mexico sees silver lining in Arizona immigration law" (link). You might call it giving comfort (if not aid), but that's only because you're an American: From the view south of the border, times could not be worse in terms of America's disregard for Mexico. But a curious thing is happening. Mexicans are also seeing a new level...

$270 million border wall announced (this one between Israel and Egypt) - 01/13/10

From this: On Sunday, Israel announced it would build a wall along its southern border with Egypt in a move to secure an area through which thousands of African asylum seekers cross illegally each year. ''This is a strategic decision to ensure the Jewish and democratic character of the state of Israel,'' said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a statement. ''Israel will remain open to...

Census worker found hanged in Kentucky; see who's politicizing it - 09/24/09

... it.) * Patrik Jonsson of the Christian Science Monitor offers "Grisly hanging of Census worker: an antigovernment act? /FBI is investigating worker's death in Kentucky. Is crime-scene reference to 'fed' a clue or a feint?" (csmonitor.com/2009/0924/p02s25-usgn.html). It's more balanced than would be expected from the source; it only deserves to be in this list to a small extent. While it raises...

Alexandra Marks of CSM lies: Hawaiian officials never confirmed the certificate on Obama's site - 08/05/09

Alexandra Marks of the Christian Science Monitor offers "Should CNN attack its own anchor over ‘birther’ flap? /A media watchdog group releases an ad criticizing CNN anchor Lou Dobbs for stoking the 'birther' controversy" [1] about an ad Media Matters for America is running against Dobbs for him daring to mention the Obama citizenship issue. It includes this: Officials in Hawaii have confirmed...

Peter Grier/CS Monitor news flash: Janet Napolitano enjoys opera, often reads two books concurrently - 06/02/09

Peter Grier of the Christian Science Monitor has some breaking news scoops in "Janet Napolitano, master multitasker/Homeland defense one moment, swine flu the next. She juggles the disparate needs of a cabinet conglomerate" (link), which closes with this momentous, world-changing news: Napolitano enjoys opera, and she generally reads two books – one fiction, the other nonfiction – at a time. In...

Tea party turnout number: should you trust Pajamas Media or Silver's MSM-based estimate? - 04/18/09

Now, here's a tough one. Who do I trust less: Nate Silver, or Pajamas Media and Glenn Reynolds? Silver says that a bit more than 300,000 turned out for all the tea parties (link). And, he does that by linking almost 400 events in cities across the nation to local reports with their estimates of the turnout. On the other hand, pajamasmedia.com/instapundit/76884 links to pajamasmedia.com/blog/pjtvs...

Dennis Roddy /Pittsburgh PG, SPLC, LGF, HotAir, Kos use tragedy to smear opponents - 04/05/09

... There's a round-up here from the Christian Science Monitor; Google News wasn't exactly filled with similar MSM articles. A smaller paper covered the movement in Pennsylvania here, a story that I couldn't locate at the Post-Gazette's site. In case you think Roddy is just presenting facts without attempting to smear, he continues with this: "For some time now there has been a pretty good...

Jesse Washington/AP's supposed "outbreak of racial anger" after Obama win - 11/16/08

... US" by Patrik Jonsson of The Christian Science Monitor (link). It's basically the same article as Washington's, right down to relying on Potok of the SPLC. 11/23/08 UPDATE 2: The trend continues, as Howard Witt of the Los Angeles Times offers the same article as those above: "White extremists lash out over election of first black president", link. It also quotes Potok, and it would be...

"Under the Same Moon": Mexican-government funded pro-illegal immigration propaganda film - 03/15/08

... review from Peter Rainer of The Christian Science Monitor. UPDATE 6: Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly also forgot to mention the funding.

Rev. Robin Hoover, Mexico's little helper - 01/22/07

Rev. Robin Hoover runs Humane Borders, a religous-based group of useful idiots which assists Mexico with their agenda to send their excess population to the U.S. in exchange for remittances. They do that by establishing water stations in the desert - some of which are paid for by Pima County. They also are or were distributing maps in Mexico showing the worst routes to the U.S.

Patrik Jonsson promotes illegal immigration in Stillmore, Georgia - 10/03/06

Patrik Jonsson of the Christian Science Monitor offers "Crackdown on immigrants empties a town and hardens views", which is so highly similar to the story discussed in "Russ Bynum/AP promotes illegal immigration (Stillmore, Georgia)" that I barely need to add anything more: almost everything said about that slab of pro-illegal immigration propaganda applies to the current slab. There are a few...

CSM: Backlash over not passing immigration "reform"? - 09/07/06

The Christian Science Monitor article "As Congress stalls on immigration, a backlash brews" by Amanda Paulson might have been read as complete propaganda in favor of "comprehensive" reform if it didn't contain a very slight hint that the actual backlash would come if Congress passes any sort of amnesty scheme.

"Banks aim to help immigrants send money home" - 01/27/06

What a heart-warming title to this CSM report (link). Of course, they don't go into the downsides: billions of dollars is flowing out of the country and being used to prop up corrupt foreign governments and depriving those countries of the citizens and industries they need to improve. And, that encourages those corrupt governments to send us even more of their people. And, many of those "...

Brad Knickerbocker of the CSM: Can you trust his reporting? - 01/22/06

Most definitely you can. Assuming that is, of course, that you want heavily biased yellow reportage such as that featured in "Across the country, many mobilize against illegal immigration" (link). The bottom line of the report seems to be to portray those opposed to illegal immigration as various kinds of bad people. Some of the words and phrases used in the article include: "nativism", "anti-...

Jon Vessey, crops rotting in the fields, and pro-illegal immigration propaganda - 12/05/05

Jon Vessey is a California grower who's been quoted in a few recent articles about how crops will rot in the fields unless growers get more cheap labor to pick it. (UPDATE: see crops rotting in the fields). On 11/21, the WaPo featured him in "Shortage of Immigrant Workers Alarms Growers in West" (link), and today the Los Angeles Times features him in "Picking a Battle Over Shortage of...

"America's produce industry is facing a crisis" - 12/02/05

Nothing says propaganda like the annual whine from growers demanding more serf labor lest their crops rot in the fields. There have been a few recent newspaper articles about it, and the latest is "A drought of farm labor" (csmonitor.com/2005/1202/p01s03-usec.html). "We are trying to sound the alarm without being alarmist, but the situation has become extremely serious," says Tim Chelling of the...

Dueling over a scar - 02/09/05

The TransTexas Corridor appears to be closer to reality: AUSTIN - Farmers oppose it, metro area officials are upset about it and now state lawmakers have their own concerns about the Trans Texas Corridor, Gov. Rick Perry's $184 billion plan to build megahighways around the state. While the Legislature would seem unlikely to put the brakes on Perry's ambitious transportation plan, lawmakers appear...

"Dogmatic Libertarians: Over the edge." - 01/19/05

... suggests otherwise. A story in the Christian Science Monitor (August 30, 2000) by Scott Baldauf is particularly revealing. Baldauf describes a new project of the Immigration and Naturalization Service's Border Patrol that specifically targets highly sophisticated criminal smuggling rings that employ infrared scopes, two-way radios, and computer databases. The project goes after smugglers...

"Amnesty for Illegals? Try Again" - 06/25/04

The Christian Science Monitor comes out against both Bush's and the Democrat's plans: The Latino vote has some chance of tipping the presidential election this year. That's why both Democrats and Republicans are dancing around different ideas about amnesty for illegal aliens. Actually, amnesty isn't a word used too much anymore in the immigration debate. Since the amnesty of 1986, opposition has...

Nanci Pelosi, supporter of sweatshops, opponent of citizens and laws - 10/26/03

Nanci Pelosi (D-San Francisco) is upset by the recent raids on illegal immigrants at Wal*Mart: "We think there might be a better way to go about this because the fact is that it is against the law for the employer to hire these people so there should be more focus on the employer and less in these terrorizing raids," Pelosi said. Let's leave aside the fact that Nanci - an elected U.S.
