Newbusters reports that in the wake of tens of thousands of illegal aliens swarming over the American border, the broadcast networks are refusing to use the word "illegal" to describe these illegal aliens. And that's not because they are using words like "invaders" or "soon-to-be Democrats."
Instead, viewers are hearing words like "refugee" and "undocumented." NBC News went so far as to create the Twitter handle #RefugeeRiders.
NBC''s Lauer began his editorializing by arguing that as so many issues in this country do it's going to boil down to politics. And wherever you stand on the issue, one side or the other, I'm not going to weigh in on that, it's hard to see those images moms and their kids in that situation. The NBC host then encouraged his audience to share their thoughts using the Today show hashtag #RefugeeRiders.
Throughout the entire report, NBCs Miguel Almaguer refused to use the term illegal immigrant and instead used the term undocumented immigrants" to describe the 140 individuals being bussed to California[.]
