05/02/10 - An Arizona Patriot Calls Grijalva`s Office; Gets Hung Up On!

Re: Steve Sailer`s Column: Arizona, Britain and Harvard Law All Show Contempt For Ordinary People

Sailer pointed out in his column that illegal alien sympathizer and New York Times op-ed writer Frank Rich used words like "bigoted," "slimed" and other inflammatory language to describe Arizona`s S.B. 1070. [If Only Arizona Were the Real Problem, by Frank Rich, New York Times, May 1, 2010]

Even though Rich writes an opinion piece, using those words violate mainstream media professional journalism standards.

We know that means nothing to the NY Times. But perhaps it could take a clue from its hero Barack Obama who, in his commencement address to the University of Michigan, called for "civil discourse" when debating political differences.

Bell`s previous letter about the CNN flop Latino in America is here.
