National Media Target Sheriff Joe: ABC News Launches “Arpaio Watch” to Defeat Arizona Sheriff
Stand With Arizona ^ | 10-07-2012 | John Hill

Just disgraceful.

In an unprecedented attempt by a national media entity to try and sway an election, ABC News has launched "Arpaio Watch" - in an obvious attempt to defeat Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio just 30 days before the election.

Abandoning any pretense of objectivity, ABC News has even hired a longtime pro-illegal alien activist to pose as a "journalist" and run the operation, which - partnered with Univision - clearly has as its intention to sway Hispanic votes in Arizona and deny the Maricopa County Sheriff a 6th term. The website makes no attempt whatsoever to provide balance, going after Arpaio right out of the gate:

In the past two decades, no law enforcement figure in America has generated more animosity and fear within immigrant communities than the 80-year-old sheriff, who is infamous for immigration sweeps in heavily Latino neighborhoods in the Phoenix area. 

If you're not familiar with Arpaio, here's a crash course. This list is by no means complete: Systematic profiling of Latinos...Degrading prisoners, including immigrant detainees...Bias against Mexican immigrants....

Not exactly an even-handed analysis of the popular Sheriff who has never been found guilty or lost a civil case on any of those above allegations - yet the ABC "reporter" states them as if they are fact.

Ted Hesson, ABC News' so-called "journalist" leading "Arpaio Watch" cannot be considered in any way objective or fair on the issue or immigration. Before joining ABC News, Hesson was head of Long Island Wins, a group  that advocates on behalf of illegal aliens in Long Island, NY and elsewhere. Hesson has written articles celebrating the defeat of E-Verify bills, promoting demonstations by supporters of illegal alien amnesty, targeting local politicians who advocate for immigration enforcement (sound familiar?) , directing readers to call U.S. Senators to vote for the Dream Act (some "journalist", eh?), and disgracefully suggesting that the shooter of former AZ Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was motivated by the immigration enforcement movement.

So ABC News has hired a left-wing immigration activist to run a series of articles (with video reports sure to follow) bashing Sheriff Joe Arpaio in a tight race a month before the election. Can you say illegal campaign contribution? Can you say FCC violation? We can, and will be following up on that next week (stay tuned).

Looking for an "Obama Watch", or "Eric Holder Watch"? Don't hold your breath, they aren't coming.  ABC News has disgraced itself and surrendered any right to call themselves an objective news organization.

Angry? Then let ABC News know about it. you can contact them at the following avenues below. Our best suggestion is to at the least fill out an ABC website feedback form, and preferably send both Anne Sweeney and Ben Sherwood emails, and leave voicemails on their direct office numbers below. Let's try and fill those boxes and let them know (respectfully) that "Arpaio Watch" is an outrageous perversion of journalistic integrity and must be stopped.


Show you stand with Sheriff Joe Arpaio against these outrageous media smears and efforts by Obama and Holder to stop him from enforcing the rule of law and SIGN HIS PETITION HERE...

Soon to be voting for Snerrif Joe. Any unemployed AZ residents with a video recorder or whatever it is called these days should start an ABC watch of the watchers. Hound them like they hound us.

I will be voting for Arpaio also, can hardly wait.

Did you see the ad against Arpaio that Geraldo showed tonight about a rape? Even Geraldo said that it was false. The ad said that Arpaio did not care about this case and did not prosecute.

It is really getting dirty out there!

Joe is doing his job. That’s why the LSM Turds and Libs are upset and will do anything to get out of the way.

Yes! Watch the watchers. Harass, harangue and use Alinski tactics and run writing campaigns with their sponsors. Do this if you love your country.

We must get organized and do it. We could possibly utilize Media research center to document media abuse.

>> Now what?

For starters, let’s stop referring to them as sources of news.

As far as I’m concerned, they’re Leftwing agitators with broadcast licenses.

If ABC (”Always Been Communist”) can does this to Sheriff Joe, why can we not bring the heat on ABC? There is no reason anyone with half a brain would want to watch their tribble. Best we BOYCOT all their advertisers? Use a little of the Demodummies tactics on themselves. Just might bea good way to get our message to them to stop supporting the communist propagandists.

“If ABC (”Always Been Communist”) can does this to....”

Opps, that should read, “can do this..”, NOT “can does”.

I’m prone to bad typing at times....Sorry

Univision is nothing more than the Pravda of the Hispanic Ku Klux Klan. All they do is push the racist theories of Aztlan and Reconquista....the “Lebensraum for Hispanics”.

Sheriff Joe is one of the few left defending America from those who want to destroy it. Univision, ABC, and the Hispanic Ku Klux Klan do not like that

Illegal Alien Amnesty is Anti-American Bigotry

I used to think, that with the Internet, the rats couldn't get away with this crap anymore. I was wrong. Best thing, I think is to just get the info to as many as possible.

Boycotts are okay, especially if you get an action like Chik-Fila buycott.
