(ConservativeUnit.com)- New data shows a massive surge in illegal crossings over the U.S.-Mexico border, but whether or not that’s deemed a bad thing really depends on the outlet reporting on it. Fox and Friends hosted a discussion on how illegal border crossings have dramatically increased in a Christmas Eve segment, but only an hour later CBS discussed the exact same topic with a more positive spin.
A report from the Media Research Center (MRC) detailed how CBS reported on Joe Biden’s decision not to immediately walked back President Donald Trump’s border policies, before ignoring a huge surge in arrests at the border and choosing then to make the situation sound better than it really is.
According to data from Customs and Border Protection, November 2020 saw the highest number of arrests at the border since 2014, with even more arrests than 2017’s records. That’s pretty damning, and figures remained high in October and September. Since Joe Biden was deemed to be the “president-elect” by the media, illegal immigrants have been emboldened to try their luck on the border.
But, according to the MRC, CBS news anchor Vladimir Duthiers cited a different report that showed the overall number of deportations throughout the whole year.
Here’s what he said:
“A new report from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement reveals the impact the pandemic has had on border arrests and deportations. The agency deported more than 185,000 people in 2020. That is down 30 percent from the previous year and the lowest number in more than a decade. ICE arrested nearly 104,000 this year — that’s a 28 percent drop from 2019, and by far the lowest arrest numbers since President Trump took office. ICE says deportations fell partly because of a pandemic policy change, making them unnecessary.”
Doesn’t that sound remarkably different than what Fox News covered, and what CBP data actually showed?
You know the media is broken when they take damning data on illegal immigration and spin it into a positive, presumably just to spite President Donald Trump.
The MRC noted that the episode of CBS “This Morning” was sponsored in part by Lysol, and offered their contact details. In case you want to, you know, play the same games as the left.
Why should any company willingly support a news channel that pushes propaganda rather than actual news?
