It's almost impossible to find pro-Katie news out there recently — now it seems she might be in a couple of pots of hot water. Civil rights groups are on the anchor's case after the news program she helms ran what they're calling a report that was inaccurate and crass — and much like something they say Lou Dobbs would run.
Politico says this of the controversy:
The CBS newscast that carries her name recently aired a one sided and inaccurate report about illegal immigrant women who give birth to their children in the United States. The news story challenged the broader constitutional law of birthright citizenship and stated — without providing the correct context — that the births cost US taxpayers millions of dollars annually.
The original report makes this claim though a series of questions and answers from two different people that suspiciously arranges the information to prove the argument. Take a peek and see if you think it's one sided and innaccurate.
Given new reports out that show CBS Evening News's ratings are the lowest they've been in the history of ratings, is reporting like this to blame? How did the Today show darling tank the news? Are people just inexplicably anti-Katie?
