Marco Rubio Univision Amnesty President 2016 DACA immigration reform Breitbart News spanish speaking

Breitbart News caused a stink when it reported on presidential candidate Marco Rubio’s alleged comments on Obama’s unilateral executive immigration programs.

Is NBC up to its old—and I do mean old—tricks?

Way back in the early 1990s the network’s “Dateline NBC” program ran a “news” story claiming that certain General Motors pickup trucks would explode in flames when involved in an accident.
