TINA BROWN'S DAILY BEAST IS CLUELESS ON IMMIGRATION ISSUE
Mickey Kaus exposes just how clueless Tina Brown's DAILY BEAST is when it come to immigration issues. Here are the money quotes:
"Tina’s Teens Home Without Adult Supervision: Tina Brown’s youthful webworkers, trying to come up with a feature riffing off the Republican debate, have produced a slideshow of “anchor babies.” The only problem is that, embarrassingly, they missed the part in the definition of an “anchor baby” (including the one they themselves cite) where it notes that an “anchor baby” is the child of illegal immigrants born on American soil (the idea being that having an American citizen child anchors the entire otherwise-illegal family by insulating them from deportation)."
Kaus also explains why this happens at liberal media outlets like the DAILY BEAST:
"Note that this is the classic insulated New York liberal mistake"
This just shows how dumb and sloppy the reporting is at the DAILY BEAST under Tina Brown's leadership.
