George Borjas is quite right to contrast the easy acceptance by the Canadian media of supply and demand facts in immigration and wage matters with the wilful avoidance of the question by the American MSM. As I blogged on Saturday, the Statistics Canada study mentioned considered the US as well. One might have thought the damage it demonstrated is done to real wages (and income equality in the US) newsworthy south of the border. Yet, now as then, Google News shows not a single American MSM outlet has mentioned it. Like Oklahoma's new law, some news is not suitable for the peasanty!

Here (PDF) is the study - hat tip, Borjas Blog.
