I didn't have to read this story to know that the MSM was heavily in favor of Mexican criminals breaking the law to enter the US illegally, I knew it just from listening to ABC/CNN/NBC/MSNBC the day the law was passed. Fox News had more level-headed coverage, surprisingly (or maybe not).
This quote demonstrates the innate bias of the MSM:
Civility wasn't necessary. While the harshest Tea Party activists were scorned by the networks for any suggestion President Obama was a "Nazi," on 11 occasions these same networks unquestioningly forwarded smears that proponents of the Arizona law were like Nazis or Civil War-era slaveholders. NBC’s Andrea Mitchell used these slurs from liberal comedians to demonstrate how Arizona was becoming a "laughingstock."
