Did you know that The National Sheriff’s Association has come out with a statement demanding that congress significantly address border security? The letter, signed by almost 400 sheriffs around the country, ends this way:
Without border security and immigration reform, more Americans will continue to be victims ofcrime. Now is the time to act!
You’d think a document like this, would find its way into the news, wouldn’t you?
But, according to Tom Blumer at newsbusters.org, virtually no media bothered to report it.
Searches at the Associated Press’s APNews.com website, the AP’s raw feed, the New York Times, and Google News indicate that the nation’s primary gatekeeping and national news outlets, with the exceptions of Newsweek and Fox News, have ignored the sheriffs’ letter.
Not important enough, I guess.
Then they wonder why fewer and fewer people trust them.
