“We used [CIS material] to spin a narrative where immigrants of color were not only dangerous, violent individuals but also posed an existential threat to America,” McHugh told Hatewatch about how Breitbart handled research Miller sent to her. “We never fact-checked anything. We never called up other organizations to get any other perspective about those studies. … It was understood. You just write it up.”

Breitbart spokesperson Elizabeth Moore told Hatewatch in part one of our series on Miller's emails that "it is not exactly a newsflash that political staffers pitch stories to journalists." Hatewatch followed up with a specific question about Miller's success in pushing CIS material into Breitbart stories. “I don't know what 'CIS' means,” Moore responded in an email. Hatewatch explained the acronym in another email, but Moore did not reply back.
