Newt Gingrich offers false choice, supports incremental amnesty, doesn't challenge CNN for misleading on immigration (GOP 6/13/11 debate) - 06/13/11
At tonight's GOP debate, both moderator John King and candidate Newt Gingrich offered a false choice on immigration. Instead of calling King on offering a misleading choice, Gingrich offered the same false choice.
John King misleads about Tancredo and mass deportations at CNN 6/13/11 GOP debate (immigration) - 06/13/11
At tonight's GOP debate, John King of CNN made a misleading claim about Tom Tancredo:
John King asks bogus immigration question, Ron Paul has confused answer (CNN GOP 6/13/11 debate) - 06/13/11
At tonight's CNN GOP debate, John King asked a bogus immigration question (no surprise), and Ron Paul answered in a way that was even more confused than usual. I'm not even going to bother discussing Paul's comments since it doesn't really matter.

This isn't in any way "news", but yesterday John McCain said the following on "State of the Union" with John King of CNN (video might be here but it won't play for me): "On the issue of the Hispanic voter, we have to do a lot more. We Republicans have to recruit and elect Hispanics to office... And I don't mean just because they're Hispanics, but they represent a big part of the growing population in America. And we have a lot of work to do there. And I am of the belief that unless we reverse the trend of Hispanic voter registration, we have a very, very deep hole that we've got to come out...
Janet Napolitano falsely says "crossing the border is not a crime" (+border fence, Arpaio) - 04/20/09
Department of Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" with John King and said the following (transcript here): And yes, when we find illegal workers, yes, appropriate action, some of which is criminal, most of that is civil, because crossing the border is not a crime per se. It is civil. But anyway, going after those as well. The U.S. Code says she's wrong (link, excerpt at ): sneaking across the border can result in up to six months in jail for the first offense and up to two years for subsequent offenses.
