Networks Paint Illegal Immigrants as Victims After Judge Halts Obama's Executive Amnesty (NewsBusters)

Just shy of 24 hours after U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen halted President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty, the major broadcast networks displayed their palpable opposition to the ruling during their Tuesday night broadcasts, lamenting that it “dashes American dreams for millions of families under the threat of deportation” after Wednesday was set “to be a historic day for millions of illegal immigrants” when they could apply for legal status. 

All told, the “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC had full segments on the story with each having individual moments of bias and a minuscule 18 seconds of highlighting those against Obama’s executive action (not including quotes from Hanen’s ruling) throughout their 5 minutes and 58 seconds of coverage.
