Today's New York Times on why the immigration bill bit the dust:
According to "immigration lawyers, researchers, former goverment officials and other experts" ~
The Senate tried to do too much in one bill.
According to "supporters" (of the bill, I guess) ~
... lawmakers ... caved in to hateful, nativist, xenophobic sentiments whipped up by conservative talk radio.
They even find a way to blame Bush. According to "lawmakers" ~
President Bush pushed hard for the measure, but his administration irritated some senators because it was so deeply involved with the bill. Sometimes - as President Bill Clinton learned the hard way - it is better to lay out an objective and let Congress fill in the details...
Can you imagine reading this and believing in the journalistic integrity of it? If liberals weren't so stupid and arrogant as to blatantly and purposefully ignore what the other half of the country is saying, I would feel sorry for them.
If they're depending on the New York Times for news, they are woefully misunderinformed. To say the least.
