Marketplace Has Spoken on Open Borders Newspaper: E. Valley Trib v. Joe Arpaio – Guess Who Lost?
By Debbie Schlussel
Earlier this year, I told you about the politically-charged Pulitzer Prize awarded to The East Valley Tribune for a series of biased articles against Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
East Valley Tribune v. Joe Arpaio Enforcing Immigration Laws:
Guess Who Lost?
The gist of these stories: that Arpaio’s arrests of illegal aliens “endangered” investigation of other crimes. That thesis was preposterous, especially given that Maricopa County Prosecutor Andrew Thomas has provided statistics time and again, showing that a huge increase in crime is caused by the many illegal aliens who commit it.
Well, the marketplace has spoken. And even a Pulitzer Prize can’t negate the results.
The East Valley Tribune–once the home of great journalism (cited on our site) about the crimes and problems caused by illegal aliens, including those of the Muslim persuasion–has paid the ultimate financial price for its undue assault on those who fight to secure our borders (like Arpaio). The paper, which filed for bankruptcy protection in September, announced it will close for good on December 31st.
Yes, the marketplace has spoken on the East Valley Tribune’s open borders turn. And a Pulitzer Prize won’t save it.
You endorse a laissez-faire attitude on illegal aliens, in suburban Phoenix, the marketplace endorses a laissez-faire attitude toward buying your paper.
Now, it’s time to do the same to the open borders Arizona Republic.
