  •  The AP has everything back-asswards (8+ / 0-)

    You really have to understand who owns and runs the AP. It's a conglomeration of the worst of the local right-wing media barons, who systematically edit their "news" coverage with a right-wing bias.

    Their overall business model is failing drastically, so they're desperately pushing back against what they perceive as their enemies.

    If they are successful, their competitors, like Reuters, which has historically had far more neutral coverage, will get the links and the eyeballs from advertisers.

    I looked at news coverage by the wire services very intensively during the 2004 election, and found that AP editors consistently added right wing slant to the initial news coverage by their reporters in the field.

    No Real Housewives, but plenty of action at Orange County Progressive Come for the politics. Stay for dessert.
