CNSNews.com isn't the only ConWeb operation to have promoted that Heritage Foundation study on immigration without mentioning its flaws or the racially charged rhetoric of the study's co-author.
A May 7 WND article by John Bennett touted how "Amnesty will cost American taxpayers at least $6.3 trillion in welfare and other public benefits," featuring an audio interview with report co-author Jason Richwine. But Bennett has not lifted a finger to report any of the reaction and fallout from the report:
- The report has massive flaws that even co-author Robert Rector acknowledges: It not only doesn't examine the entire Senate immigration bill it purports to be looking at, it leaves out any examination of provisions designed to help the economy.
- Richwine wrote a 2009 doctoral dissertation titled "IQ and Immigration Policy" claiming that "there are deep-set differentials in intelligence between races," adding, "No one knows whether Hispanics will ever reach IQ parity with whites, but the prediction that new Hispanic immigrants will have low-IQ children and grandchildren is difficult to argue against."
Laziness or censorship a la WND's hiding of all facts that discredit its birther obession? We report, you decide.
