WashPost Continues to Puff Pro-Amnesty Activists

June 15th, 2007 10:37 AM

The Washington Post today ran yet another story that puffed the politics of pro-illegal immigrant activists. [see Tim Graham's excellent post from April about biased coverage of a pro-amnesty rally]

In "The DJ Who Decided It's Drive Time," staff writer David Montgomery detailed the activism of Eddie "El Piolin" Soleto, a Los Angeles Spanish-language morning show host. It's not until deep in the article that we learn Sotelo is an illegal immigrant, having sneaked across the border from Mexico in 1986.

There's no effort to bring in an opposing point of view, and plenty of quotes are taken with the typical "jobs Americans won't do" tack.

What's more, a liberal activist group that has supported in-state tuition for illegal immigrants, CASA de Maryland, was tagged by Montgomery innocuously as a "day laborer advocacy group."
