Rightwing Media (National Review) Badly Slants the News

Norquist "Backing" Rubio (before slick editing)

"Where in the World is Grover Norquist???" (after slick editing)

Headlines from the National Review: "Critical National Review Rubio Cover Edits Out Grover Norquist"

Why is that do you suppose that is? How about this: The event featured a smiling Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) flanked by Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and John McCain (R-AZ) from an April 18 event where they officially rolled out the "Gang of Eight" proposal that would comprehensively reform the nation's immigration laws and, yes, include a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants.

My hunch is that old Grover supports that idea since it would give millions citizenship, right to work and pay taxes and add to the national kitty, as it were and thus help the GOP with their Latino problem and help head off any "new tax proposals" which Norquist hates with a passion, and thus give the GOPers a platform: jobs, helping our family of immigrants, and not raise taxes (except through their payrolls and annual legal filing).

That's my hunch - what's yours?
