The cutting edge of news

It seems that the Portland Mercury, you know, that publication that can't quite decide if it's a tabloid or a dirty magazine, has finally gotten around to printing something on the Mexican Consulate/PCUN protest organized by OFIR. Their headline:

With the Threat of a Homosexual Takeover Averted, Conservatives Take Aim at Their Next Target—Immigrants
Around the building marched hundreds of supporters of immigrant rights from at least a dozen organizations, carrying signs with messages like "We put food on your table" and "No human is illegal." But across the street (and two police cars and a small army of cops away), stood a group of 30 to 50 people, invariably white and middle age or older, fervently screaming for the undocumented workers to be deported.

And it gets more "fair and balanced" from there...

They start rambling about the KKK and "angry majorities becoming singularly obsessed with law and order."

Read it for a laugh.

Whats really facinating to me is how intelectually stunted the reporter is. Instead of examing two sides of an extremely controversial subject that could split the democratic party way out of the main stream they just start and end on their assumptions.

They actually comment that the only reason immigration is a real issue is because Howard Dean says it is. They are clueless - thankfully the paper has no credibility.
