Morning Read 2: Does the North Country need a new immigrant wave?.

This article, a repost in North Country Public Radio blog by Brian Mann, referred to a New York Times article by A.G. Sulzburger, Hispanics Reviving Faded Towns on the Plains. This article stood out to me because anti-immigrant voices were “saved” until the end of the article.

Being from the Midwest, I have read many of the articles in local papers those voices would be quoted at the top of the article, or even reflected in headlines, such as some recent ones I saw online:  41 illegal immigrants arrested in Ohio, Newsnet5.com, Cleveland, Ohio,  or Expert: Northwest Ohio has a lot of ties to terrorism, By Jerry Anderson. It is interesting how the editorial line can slant the news.
