Dobbs_2In his expected rebuttal on CNN.com to the immigration protests yesterday, Lou Dobbs takes activists to task for choosing May 1, which happens to be Law Day, to hold rallies in support of law-breaking illegal immigrants. Dobbs puts part of the blame on media for getting too caught up in the immigrant rallies to mention Law Day:

I'll bet you know about the illegal alien amnesty marches, but I don't know of a single news organization, electronic or print that pointed out that May 1 is America's Law Day. The cable news networks gave almost wall-to-wall coverage to the illegal alien demonstrations, but they apparently couldn't find any American celebrating Law Day.

Guess Dobbs forgot to thumb through the New York Times yesterday, whose opinion pages featured the subtly titled editorial "Law Day." (He also could have looked here.)
