Fox News Ignores Border Crisis Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
Glenn Spencer -- American Border Patrol -- March 31 Who Watches the Watchmen? For the past eleven years I have lived and worked on the U.S. -- Mexico border, witnessing wholesale deceit on the part of our government and Fox News, the co-called conservative TV outlet.
The government promised to build a double-layered border fence, but didn't -- and Fox News ignored it. New York Times -- March 2 "In the 1990s and after 2006, when Congress set aside $2 billion to build border fences, the approach focused on static technology. San Diego was the model, with its three layers of fence and cameras atop poles 85 feet tall. But immigrants soon adapted and crossed elsewhere." (Totally misleading --- and Fox News ignored it.)
Customs and Border Protection officials promised to measure border security, but then said they can't --- and Fox News ignored it. New York Times -- March 21 Officials Concede Failures on Gauging Border Security She (Chairman Miller) told Mr. B0rkowski that the lack of security measurements from the administration "could be a component of our failure to pass something I think is very important for our country." Ever since Obama announced his new amnesty program there has been a huge surge across the border --- and Fox News ignores it.
There is a Latin phrase: Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? --- Who watches the watchmen? Who indeed?
