Nixon's Memoirs: Lies and the Associated Press

Lies and the Associated Press

When the average American gets up in the morning (or evening, such as my case) and picks up their local Daily or Sunday paper, they generally expect what they read to be the truth. Afterall, aren't their editors, and such to see to this?

Well, yes, but there is one source of unmonitored news that practically every local paper takes for granted. The Associated Press wire.

As a young journalism student, I could post anything I wanted to the AP wire, it was easy, we had a direct link from our student newsroom. A trained monkey could have wandered in and sent a story to the AP.

And now, it just so happens, that's been done.

This story from Powerline has me outraged. It appears some Democrat stooge decided to publish an absolute falsehood about a rally in Wisconsin, stating that the crowd booed when President Bush mentioned former President Clinton's upcoming bypass surgery. The truth was the crowd expressed their concern, and then cheered when Bush wished him a speedy recovery. This was a blatant attempt to make Bush look bad.

They should NEVER let this reporter near the wire again, and if I ever get to talk to him/her, I hope I can say "Yes, I would like fries with that."
