Did You See Reuters’ Anti-Trump WH Correspondent Get Owned by the Facts on Immigration?


There is an abundance of journalists and reporters — particularly among the pool of White House correspondents — who profess with their mouths to be neutral and objective but reveal through their actions a deep and abiding animus and bias against President Donald Trump.

One of the more glaringly hypocritical among those individuals is Jeff Mason — chief White House correspondent for Reuters who also previously served as president of the White House Correspondents’ Association — a reporter who claims to be unbiased and neutral but routinely provides slanted coverage that portrays the president and his administration in a poor light, whether such coverage has been earned or not.

Larsen tweeted, “Most estimates, based on Census data checked against estimates on lawful immigrants, say there are around 11 million undocumented. But a newish Yale study says it could be as high as 35 million.” Her tweet included a link to the Yale University study.

Yale Insights reported in September that three researchers affiliated with the university had abandoned the old standard technique of basing guesstimates about the illegal immigrant population off Census reports and surveys and instead devised a mathematical modeling engine that took into account a variety of additional information including demographics and...
