ABC's Stephanopoulos Highlights Two Conservative News Agenda Items, Briefly

ABC News producers on Thursday night managed to sneak, into the script read by World News fill-in anchor George Stephanopoulos - ever so briefly - two news items from a conservative news agenda which were skipped by CBS and NBC:

♦ A study from the Pew Hispanic Center found that, in 2008, one out of every twelve babies born here had parents in the country illegally.

♦ We have some reassurance tonight for all of you who believe that faith and love are linked. A new study from the Journal of Marriage and Family found that couples who pray together do, indeed, stay together. And they have happier marriages than those who don't. African-American couples are most likely to be on the same page when it comes to religion.

Pew's report, "Unauthorized Immigrants and Their U.S.-Born Children," also determined "nearly four-in-five (79%) of the 5.1 million children (younger than age 18) of unauthorized immigrants were born in this country and therefore are U.S. citizens."
