ABCNews Now Pretty Much Just Candid Camera

I think it should be called "ABCNews or Something." The "or Something" is the main component.

This is actually teased for PrimeTime live, which is I guess a magazine show ostensibly part of their news division.

They set up a fake sting in Arizona to see if a bad actor can convince a restaurant to aid him in trying to deport other bad actors for "looking Mexican."

They were hoping to catch Whitey engaging in racial profiling.

What actually happens is that a woman accuses the fake cop of racial profiling but then suggests she can help them get away in their car. She is lauded for her progressive views on illegal immigration.

But, um, didn't she just racially profile herself? Her belief was that they were illegals; she didn't dispute that. She just agreed to help them continue evading the law.

And that, for ABCNews or Something, Is laudatory.

Now, if this had gone the other way, of course, Whitey would have been evil. Evil, I guess, for racially profiling but then acting in comportment with the law. Whitey who engages in racially profiling but then helps criminals break the law is good.

Either way, it's stupid: No one's being deported "just based on how they look." The fact is we have tens of millions of illegal immigrants, most from south of the border, and a high percentage from Mexico. This isn't racial profiling so much as it is reality profiling, which is always a controversial technique to a liberal.

Thanks to Tony.
