The mainstream media's immigration hypocrisy

Jack Hellner  "When will journalists start having enough respect for themselves and the public to report the truth about the laws that politicians from both parties passed that Trump is trying to enforce along with facts about how Obama, Bush, and Clinton talked about immigration and handled the law?  It is especially pathetic that the media obviously know about the detention facilities during Obama and act as though Trump were the first president who separated children from their parents who violated our laws.
"We have to send a clear message: Just because your child gets across the border, doesn't mean your child gets to stay. We don't want to send a message that is contrary to our laws or that will encourage more children to make the dangerous journey." –Hillary Clinton on CNN, 2014
"Did the immigration advocates and media protest in outrage?  Did Hillary, Michelle, and Laura write about how un-American and cruel this was?  Now here's Obama in 2016:
The American people are a welcoming and generous people.  But those who enter our country illegally, and those who employ them, disrespect the rule of law.  And because we live in an age where terrorists are challenging our borders, we simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, and unchecked.  Americans are right to demand better border security and better enforcement of the immigration laws
"Bill Clinton in 1995, as Democrats cheered:" . . .
There are plenty of pictures available of detention facilities during Obama's eight years from this 1996 law, so why aren't the supposedly outraged journalists showing them now, or why didn't they show them when Obama was in office if they care as much as they say they do?
Did former first ladies Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, and Laura Bush write about how un-American and cruel that was?  Did the media endlessly show the photos of the facilities to lower Obama's and Democrats' poll numbers since there was an election coming up?
Will Time Magazine apologize and pull the issue showing a little girl crying looking up at Trump, since she wasn't actually separated from her mother?
Will Facebook refund the $18 million that was raised with a fraudulent picture as it pretends to care about fake news?
