Drudge Distort

I suppose it would be fair to say that Matt Drudge has a "point of view" on the whole immigration issue that has been front page news for the past several weeks. Here's a screenshot of his site (augmented slightly to make the image fit and still be readable) from this morning:

The crowd stretched for two miles! Protestors are flooding Washington and sweeping the USA. These immigrants are just like killer bees, overwhelming our defenses and undermining the very fabric of our comfortable existence!

Notice that despite the fact that a high percentage of the protestors were carrying American flags and being conspicuously American, Drudge chose an image of a shirtless kid with a bandana and the word "Mexican" tattooed across his back to represent the story. Fair and balanced, as always. I wonder if Drudge disapproves of all those kids who look like Kevin Federline and sport shamrock tattoos on their shoulders. I'm guessing not.
