5 White Men Comment On Bush's Speech

-- by Dave Johnson

Media Matters - CNN roundtable on Bush immigration speech included five white men, but no progressives or Latinos,

Summary: Following President Bush's speech on immigration, CNN aired a special edition of Lou Dobbs Tonight that consisted largely of a roundtable discussion moderated by show host Lou Dobbs, with four other white men as guests: conservative syndicated columnist Tony Blankley, Republican strategist Charlie Black, CNN senior political analyst and American Enterprise Institute resident fellow William Schneider, and CNN host Wolf Blitzer. Missing from the discussion was the perspective of a Democrat, a progressive, a woman, or a Latino.
Why would any Latinos, women, Democrats, representatives of unions, Progressives or young people be invited on TV to talk about immigration?

Go look at the picture, too.

I think I'm glad I missed this one. On the whole I rather like Lou Dobbs, though.

One thought -- I think it's important to separate the open borders problem from the illegal immigrants problem. They are not identical problems and the problem with the border(s) being so totally out of control is one of national security.
