Just five days ago, MSNBC ran an article describing SB 1070 as the "papers, please" immigration law. MSNBC framed the law as if the only the provision in it allowed police officers to inquire about the immigration status of criminals.
Today, the Supreme Court has ruled that that key provision is constitutional. Yet, in its wake the Main Stream Media has instantly changed their tune, declaring that the high court has struck down the law. The importance of the provision that they once declared indefensible and unconstitutional? All but forgotten in their headlines.
MSNBC, for example, has this headline blaring on their front page:
CNN, never to fall behind their liberal brethren, pulled the same stunt. This is on the front of their website:
Again, the most controversial part of the law was upheld. The part of the law that liberals had formerly bemoaned was declared constitutional. But now, as it is in place, to the MSM trying to spin a story, it is an afterthought.
