New report on media myths and immigration

May
21

The Media Matters Action Network released a report today about immigration myths and cable news. Fear & Loathing in Prime Time is a study of the rhetoric used by cable news show hosts like Lou Dobbs and Bill O’Reilly when they discuss crime, NAFTA, Mexico or other issues that they associate with illegal immigration. Among the most outrageous myths that these shows peddle is the “North American Union,” a fictional proposal to merge the U.S., Canada and Mexico into one government similar to the European Union. The report notes that Lou Dobbs has discussed this fictional union on 56 separate programs over the past two years. Click here to view the report.
