Opening Arguments

On a first-name basis

The Journal Gazette does a typical "life is tough in the shadows when you fear being rounded up any minute" heart-tugger:

Pilar can turn on her radio or television and hear Spanish broadcasts. At most specialty grocery stores or Mexican taquería , she can pick up a local Spanish-language newspaper.

But for Pilar and her counterparts in northeast Indiana's community of illegal Hispanic immigrants, nothing beats good, old-fashioned chisme

In the eyes of the "journalist" (and I use that term loosely) these folks aren't lawbreakers, they're VICTIMS. They are to be protected at all costs from our oppressive system of laws.

Just to point out how fair the "journalists" are, just watch where your name pops up if you get nailed for a misdemeanor DUI or get popped paying for a piece of $%^....

Oh yeah, the press is fair.
