Conservative bloggers find profit in opposing immigration reform

I've seen a disturbing trend among many conservative bloggers lately. Particularly, special interest groups who buy advertising from some conservative blogs seem to be defining how certain issues are reported on those sites. Reporting on an issue without influence from advertisers is always a slippery slope for journalists, but some bloggers seem to have no problem catering to them to keep the money flowing.

My latest report points out a group of bloggers that write for a media corporation funded by ad revenue from a Washington political group. This political group seems intent on preaching broad, hateful rhetoric on the issue of immigration, and the bloggers seem happy to echo that rhetoric. This is why we don't see more meaningful, in-depth reporting on many controversial issues - there's no money in it.
