Case Study - Ben Zuckerman

On August, 5, 2009, CNN's Casey Wian interviewed Professor Ben Zuckerman on Lou Dobbs Tonight.1,2 In the interview, Prof. Zuckerman discussed the environmental impact of continued population growth in the United States.

In response to the interview, a hit piece on Ben Zuckerman was published on several "progressive" blogs. What is interesting is not that an open borders zealot expressed their unsubstantiated opinion in the piece, but rather the manner in which the author regurgitated tired cliches culled from other strikingly similar hit pieces.
