Summer, I think it's clear that was what you meant. I understood that when you said and I when I reviewed the recording.
An extensive piece on South Durham is in our Eats guide. Also, Kat Benson, the author of the piece in the Durham Finder about places for families—all over the county—lives in South Durham.
FAIR did not return phone calls or emails requesting information and an interview. Since that organization is the mothership for the others, that's whom I contacted.
I wrote that the environment is not a focus for FAIR. The group's annual reports, which summarizes its activities for the year, make scant mention of any environmental activism.
The quotes from Gaylord Nelson, etc. are widely quoted by FAIR, etc. to justify its position. However, the Sierra Club has taken a neutral stance on immigration.
It’s true that immigrants and their descendants arriving since 2005 are expected to account for 82 percent of U.S. population growth through 2050. However, the U.S. birth rate dipped in 2011 to the lowest ever recorded, led by a plunge in births to immigrant women, according to a November 2012 report by the Pew Research Center. The birth rate for foreign women fell 14 percent; for Mexican women, the decline was even greater—23 percent.
@tenseownage: "Promoting" Chad Johnston's career was not the motivation behind this article. TPC and DCM are interesting organizations that have been headed by an interesting person. It's that simple. As for your motivations, they seem more complicated.
@alex: While the foundation does underwrite some of that programming, school children and their parents have a choice whether to watch it. Also, PBS clearly states the identity of the sponsorships. That's not the case with the Koch-funded history materials: If a teacher chooses to use them, the kids have to as well. And unless you already know about the financial backing of the Bill of Rights Institute, you wouldn't necessarily know Koch is involved in your child's education.
The quote was removed because the reporter is on vacation and it's unclear whether the source stated that or if he was misquoted.
