    But who watches the media watchers? When people like Howard Kurtz hold the same biases as the people he is supposedly analyzing for bias, what do you get. The elite media bias around is so overwhelming that anybody not recognizing it lack credibility.

    Kurtz wrote:

    “The mainstream media - you know who you are - are rooting for immigration reform.

    It's not that journalists are acting as cheerleaders for the emerging plan.”

    I suppose that means that the rooters aren't wearing cheer leading uniforms. How will we ever identify them?

    “Be a little skeptical on immigration reform”

    Howard Kurtz proved Ross Douthat's point when Kurtz referred to not kicking out 11 million illegal immigrants, so let's have an honest discussion about immigration. That is a straw man. We do not have to do anything but enforce the law as best we can. We certainly do not have to make the problem worse by rewarding illegal behavior.
