After the media’s plan to use the border crisis as propaganda for Obama’s amnesty backfired, the media either stopped covering the crisis altogether or buried its coverage. This left the job to New Media outlets like Breitbart News and the Drudge Report. After Drudge linked to an alarming World Net Daily article that reasonably suggested our unsecured borders are even more frightening during an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus, Geraldo Rivera flipped out:
Shame on Drudge. His authoritative website has gone hysterical on issue of immigrant children. 14 stories like “Could Ebola sneak across?
– Geraldo Rivera (@GeraldoRivera) July 30, 2014
Rivera continued the harangue on his radio show, going so far as to accuse Drudge of trying to stir up a civil war:
It is the worst kind of jingoistic rhetoric ever. And Matt Drudge with this massive website is doing his best to stir up a civil war. I mean, shame on Matt Drudge.
This is just Rivera saying out loud what the mainstream media won’t: They don’t want the border crisis covered, especially those facts inconvenient to The Amnesty Narrative.
When you see how porous or Southern border is; how tens of thousands, driven by the promise of amnesty, find their way into various American institutions, despite Geraldo’s shrieking, playing devil’s advocate during an outbreak of Ebola is exactly what a responsible media should be doing.
Rivera wants o shut down debate because he doesn’t have a good answer for the Ebola question. Because other than finally securing our borders against waves of undocumented Democrats, there isn’t one.
