Accuracy in Media Editor Roger Aronoff was a guest on “Cavuto” on Thursday, on the Fox Business Network. The topic was media coverage of the current immigration crisis at America’s southern border.
Aronoff said that it is a “manufactured crisis,” and that an even bigger story than the 50,000-plus children who have recently come into the country is the 240,000 adults who have come across illegally since April of this year. Aronoff said the media are downplaying the worst parts of this crisis, and dropping the word “illegal” from their lexicon because they are pushing a pro-amnesty agenda, and are attempting to protect President Obama from political damage. This was the opening segment of Cavuto’s show on Thursday night.
