“AP DRIVES CAR INTO LAKE, BLAMES GEORGE BUSH”
Today’s hot topic — nothing new here, at this hour — is the “AP” bias issue: AP questionable reporter including false and defaming information about President Bush and about his Republican audience in Wisconsin from earlier today, that has been nailed and nailed again by many among us conservatives worldwide, covered completely and completely well in the blog, “Swimming through the Spin,” entry titled, “AP Bias Strikes Again.”
I read a blurb about this issue earlier on Drudge but didn’t realize the scope of the problem until I read “Swimming through the Spin”‘s comprehensive coverage and accessed the profuse and substantial links that are provided there.
Here I was, all accustomed to the “AP” distortions — not to mention similar preposterous statements made by and through other “mainstream media” sources — and trying to take it in stride, what with so many of these similar articles and news broadcasts that take place with every access to the sources. President Bush could spill-cast candy to a crowd and what you’d read about that within a few moments afterward, on AP, on Reuters, on CBS and MSNBC and similar, would be “Bush attacks children with flying objects…” or something similar.
It’s great to see people confronting the illogic and dishonesty that is the wire services, from whence nearly all other “news” sources capture and reprint. The sad part is that I’m accustomed to the dishonesty by the sources.
And only the other day, there I was writing about honesty as a virtue. Virtue is, apparently, a tangential goal — even a specious pursuit — to some in our times: to be liberal — as it’s suggested by a liberal media gone insane (moreso recently) evidenced by outright false statements — is to be inaccurate, dishonest, lacking virtue and not even bothered about it.
“Liberal bites neighbor; liberal says neighbor jumped into his mouth”
It musta’ been Kerry at midnight under a nearly-full moon that set the AP writer off.
But that doesn’t explain the dishonest statements by liberals nationwide, on every other day of the years past. That they are employed throughout the media is no surprise.
But, who reports on and about the media? Or, should, is more the issue here.
Update: POWER LINE has more: “THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MAKES IT UP”
President Bush’s speech — text and delivery — at last night’s RNC was wonderful: humane, genuine, endearing, encouraging, inspiring and above laudible.
My prayers tonight include former President Bill Clinton and his family.
