FINALLY, RECKLESS CABLE TV'S ANTI-IMMIGRATION ANCHORS ON THE SPOT
My May 29 column says "Bravo!" to a study by Media Matters Action Network, which blasts cable television anchors Lou Dobbs and Glenn Beck, of CNN, and Bill O'Reilly, of Fox News, for practicing reckless journalism. Here is the link to the sstudy: http://mediamattersaction.org/reports/fearandloathing/online_version. What do you think of the study? And of Barack Obama's comment about it in the column?
Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald columnist Andres Oppenheimer, author of five best-sellers on Latin American affairs and whose syndicated column appears in 55 major U.S. and Latin American newspapers, comments on the latest events in Latin America and U.S.- Latin American affairs. He is a member of The Miami Herald team that won the 1987 Pulitzer Prize. He also won the 1999 Maria Moors Cabot Award, the 2001 King of Spain prize, and the 2005 Emmy Suncoast award. He is the author of Castro's Final Hour; Bordering on Chaos, on Mexico's crisis; Cronicas de heroes y bandidos and Ojos vendados, and most recently of "Cuentos Chinos" (Plaza & Janes, Mexico.) A new Oppenheimer Report appears every Sunday and Thursday.
