Good points.Media which caters to a conservative audience isn't
concerned about actual facts, but more about conservative's perceptions and
pleasing the base. There is little to no self-crticism. Case in point: the
2012 election where conservatives believed and were told Romney winning the
election was all but assured.
Most all of the "surveys" (I use the term loosely)that we see regarding
illegal immigration are what pollsters call, "push, pull" surveys. They
are designed to arrive at a pre-determined conclusion by using wording to elicit
a particular response......i.e. "Would you rather provide free education to
an illegal alien, or have a root canal"?The Pew survey that I
saw didn't do that. It appeared to me to be one of the most unbiased
surveys I've EVER seen regarding illegal immigration.The author
of the opinion piece extrapolated just one "fact" that he thinks will
make us change our mind about requiring immigrants to obey the laws, and utilize
the immigration system in place instead of continuing their lawlessness and
There are a lot of reasonable solutions to immigration that don't require
the dismantling of families that are already here contributing to our
commmunities... unfortunately there are still too many who prefer to live in
fear of their neighbors, rather than seeking solutions that will help them
become equals and better contributors to our local communities.
I just love that "media which caters to a conservative audience . . . "
comment. Kinda like saying "all the 4' 6" NBA players are taking
over the league."
