Bozell Pans 'Who Wants to Marry a U.S. Citizen' Reality Show
Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly interviewed Media Research Center president and NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell on the December 3 "America's Newsroom" program about a reality dating show in the works in which the contestants are immigrants (some potentially in the U.S. illegally) seeking to gain permanent resident status by marrying a U.S. citizen.
The program is styled "Who Wants to Marry a U.S. Citizen?"
Bozell slammed the program as offensive regardless of one's politics with regard to immigration and border security:
...it makes a mockery out of that which is so profoundly important to Americans which is their citizenship..... Forget the [immigration] debate, [the illegal immigration issue] ought not to be made a subject of a game show. But when you see the raging debate taking place with so much passion on both sides of the aisle, both sides of the aisle should be furious that somebody would make a mockery of it.
