NBC Promotes Twitter Handle For Illegal Immigrants: #RefugeeRiders (NewsBusters)
On Wednesday, July 2, NBC’s Today went beyond avoiding using the term “illegal” to describe the immigrants being bussed from Texas into California. The Peacock network has created a Twitter handle to show its support for the illegal immigrants.
Following a report by NBC’s Miguel Almaguer, Today anchor Matt Lauer triumphantly declared “We want you to weigh in on this. Share your comments using the #RefugeeRiders.”
