A Day Without an Immigrant or Sunscreen

Tired and kinda sunburnt from all the radioing and marching and driving today. Don’t have too much to offer till I get some sleep. But the protests and boycott seem to have gone well. It is frustrating how disjointed and camoflagued the debates on the issue are. And I am thoroughly amused by this article by Lou Dobbs, in which he makes himself look like an idiot.

[update]

Oh for fuck’s sake. The local Fox affiliate is running promos for tonight’s news that start off with neutral statements about the immigrant protest, then something about “sex offenders getting across the border, and how they’re a threat to San Diego.”

  1. It seems to me that the Associated Press and all news agencies are intentionally NOT covering the immigration policy protests. Since the Federal Govenment screens all AP articles, this doesn’t surprise me at all. It’s very disappointing and just another affirmation that the “free Press” in this country is not. They are slaves to the interests of their corporate sponsors (advertisers) and to those who use the agencies as a means by which to market product. We do not have objective reporting in this country, lack of coverage of the opposing view on this subject simply proves it.

  2. I dunno; it’s been the big story at CNN.com for most of the day…

    But yeah, Lou Dobbs is a douche.
