Breitbart News’ Matthew Boyle to be Awarded by Eagle Forum for “Amnesty” Reporting

The Eagle Forum will honor Breitbart News’ Matthew Boyle for his reporting on “amnesty” at its annual meeting next month.

“Matthew Boyle has been nominated for the award by Eagle Forum’s Capitol Hill office for his devotion to truth and accuracy in the media as an investigative journalist,” the Eagle Forum told Breitbart News today. To describe Boyle’s work as accurate would be disingenuous at best. In actuality, Boyle has been one of the most prominent mouthpieces for the anti-immigrant movement in conservative media; frequently writing about publications and events coordinated by members of the anti-immigrant movement like the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) and the Black American Leadership Alliance. Boyle also, as Mother Jones reported in July, has actively worked with the secretive conservative strategy group Groundswell– whose membership also includes nativist activists such as Mark Krikorian of CIS and conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney.
