It all started with Time Magazine turning a photo of a little girl crying at the border into a symbol of a border policy that’s been going on for years that the newly awakened media is blaming the current administration for:
"Welcome to America." As thousands of immigrant children have been separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border, @TIME's July cover places the blame on President Trump. https://t.co/iFhonPkqTP

Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, 32, said that he had not heard from his wife Sandra, 32, who was with his two-year-old daughter Yanela Denise, for nearly three weeks until he saw the image of them being apprehended in Texas.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Hernandez, who lives in Puerto Cortes, Honduras, says that he was told yesterday that his wife and child are being detained at a family residential center in Texas but are together and are doing ‘fine.’
‘You can imagine how I felt when I saw that photo of my daughter. It broke my heart. It’s difficult as a father to see that, but I know now that they are not in danger. They are safer now than when they were making that journey to the border,’ he said.
Denis said his wife and daughter were never separated by border control agents and remain together.
Another media total embarrassment? Yep.
Father of the now famous photo of the little girl crying says his wife/child were never separated at any time by authorities, that his wife was seeking a job (not fleeing violence), and that he is upset w/ her for taking his child on the dangerous journey https://t.co/owZH204b2A pic.twitter.com/ruZt263tDu

So — the people weren’t fleeing violence and the child wasn’t separated from her parent. Other than that, you totally nailed the facts, Time Magazine!
The MSM will be quick to clarify all their hyperventilating stories about this, right? Of course not. Contrary to the NY Times and CNN’s new slogans, the facts matter less than ever.
I worked in local media for 20 years and have spent the last six years observing the media scene full time, and I can safely say “journalism” has never been anywhere near as big of a joke as it is right now. But you knew that already.
