An April 30 TimesWatch post by Tim Graham expressed dispproval that the New York Times covered "another tiny left-wing protest of 'dozens' against Arizona’s new immigration law." That's not surprising. But the headline is: "Hyping 'Dozens' of Pro-Amnesty Protesters - At a Chicago Cubs Game."
Huh? How does protesting a law critics say could lead to racial profiling equate to being "pro-amnesty"? Graham doesn't explain -- heck, he doesn't even mention the word "amnesty" in his item outside the headline.
We know "amnesty" is being tossed around by right-wingers to frighten people about all those brown people, but sheesh, Tim, try to focus the scare tactics a bit, would ya?
