LAYERS OF EDITORS AND FACT-CHECKERS: “That parody story about Michele Bachmann proposing to set up labor camps for illegal immigrant children, which took in our dear friends at Think Progress, has taken in the New York Times as well: Brazil bureau chief Simon Romero is tweeting the fake story as though it were real.”
UPDATE: Hey, though, this may actually do more than anything to shrink the flow of immigrants. Idea for anti-illegal-immigration groups: Buy ads in Central America, looking pretty official, denying that the U.S. Government puts illegals into forced-labor camps. Say that what the New York Times and ThinkProgress are reporting is false! Pay no attention to these absurd claims!
