Dan Calabrese, of North Star Writers, wrote a great piece on the state of The Associated Press. The AP has become a disgrace and a danger to America. They have become a blog for the moron in our White House and are directly to blame for ending what was once the media. He Writes:
On The Economy
If you read any AP story about the economy, you will inevitably read that the current U.S. recession started in December 2007 (one year too early). This is a lie. Why does the AP constantly make this false claim? In order to lay the blame for the recession at the feet of George W. Bush, of course.
Of course, they did the same thing just last week with the big, super-secret CIA plot that turned out to be nothing more than a PowerPoint presentation about how to maybe kill Osama Bin Laden and other Al Qaeda leaders.
The “story” was a big bunch of nothing, but because Dick Cheney was involved, the AP trotted out the scandal headlines. The bottom line is that the AP is nothing more than a propaganda service for its own political biases. It lies.
