More One-Sided 'Experts' At Newsmax
Topic: Newsmax

A May 5 Newsmax article by David Patten cites "experts" who "tell Newsmax fears of massive racial profiling due to Arizona's new immigration law are largely overblown." But Patten doesn't tell his readers that his "experts" are biased.

Patten cites just two "experts" -- the Center for Immigration Studies' Stephen Camerota and National Review blogger Andrew McCarthy. At no point does Patten explicitly identify their slants:McCarthy, as his National Review affiliation indicates, is a conservative who can be assumed to be anti-immigration to some extent, while Camerota's CIS has a "low-immigration vision."

Patten has a long history of citing "experts" with a bias and omitting the views of "experts"  that contradict Newsmax's conservative agenda.
