AP is covering for Obama

  • Follow Letters

As I read the May 1 locally written editorial “A falling interest rate” – about new revelations in the 2012 Benghazi attack – I see a ray of hope that the national media will be exposed and be seen as the liberal/socialist propaganda machine that it is. I hope the 1,500 U.S. newspapers that use AP will wake up and quit distributing this democracy-destroying data sold as “news.”

Then I read numerous Associated Press “news” stories, and I know it’s not going to happen. If newspapers don’t know by now, they’ll never realize their part in the downfall of democracy.

An April 20 AP story said that the surviving Boston bomber was a college student. How many editors remember that they ran an AP story on Feb. 19, 2012, in which AP criticized the New York police department for “monitor(ing) Muslim college students”? This foul-deed story by AP had 63 negatives against the NYPD and 13 positives, with 12 students arrested on terrorism charges.

Now that a Muslim college student has killed three and injured over 260 in Boston, has journalism questioned that first AP story? No. AP set out to expose the NYPD and to protect Muslim extremists – and 1,500 U.S. newspapers helped them do it.

On May 1, an AP story praised the new “simplified” form of Obamacare in an all-positive article that would make Communist Chinese news reporters blush. AP reporter Ricardo Alonzo-Zaldivar wrote that President Obama “unveiled simplified forms to apply for (Obamacare) insurance,” and reminded the masses that Obamacare is a “mandate, not a suggestion.”

The reporter never quotes anybody, he just dictates the “facts.” When did reporters become speakers for “The Party”?

In earlier letters, I said that when democracy falls, the same national liberal/socialist media that brought it down will be asked by newspapers to explain its demise, and that AP will make certain it leaves itself out of the story. They’ve already done that.

In an April 29 article, AP – which fooled newspapers again this presidential election – made a point to put the blame on someone else when it wrote that Republican Mitt Romney lost because “blacks strongly supported Obama while many whites stayed home.”

So it was lazy white people who elected a socialist such as Obama, not socialist AP – according to socialist AP, that is, which is about the only way newspapers would have it. Notice: Not in that explanation is the fact that liberal/socialist AP wrote hundreds of negative stories about Republican Romney, and hundreds of all-positive stories about AP’s fellow Democrat Obama.

These free ads for Obama go out as news or “truth” to 225 million Americans, but they didn’t sway any voters, according to AP. And do they have any reason to lie to you?

Repeated indifferance is nothing new with Obama

I am tired of the Media’s liberal bias. I will give you two examples Gosnell and Obama. Why three women are held as captives for 10 years is a larger story than a brutal abortionist that used underage girls to administer anesthetics and brutally killed babies for TWENTY YEARS? We now have another abortionist claiming babies are like meat in a crock pot. So it seems the Gosnell mentality is riff in the abortion industry. Don’t expect to see any coverage in the media thought. Obama has lied to the American people repeatedly over the last 5 years and the media has covered for him. It goes from the claims about Bloody Sunday, to the claims about his mother's health insurance when she died. Obama altered a scientific report on the oil well blow out in the gulf of Mexico. Obama claimed executive authority in Fast and Furious to hide the lies of Holder. Despite all these lies there is no interest from the "news" media. To some one that would lie about his own "average white women" mother's death the lies about Benghazi aren’t that hard to understand!

The Letter and Comments = FOX News

The same can be said for the other side of this as well. I am surprise there is no mention of Obama's birth certificate being a fake. Keep digging and I am sure one day you will find something the rest of us can get excited about, like the world really is flat. Thanks for a good laugh this morning.

I did. In contrast to Mr. Hunter's opinion piece. Also in contrast to the God knows how many ranting opinion pieces that have said the exact same thing that he's written over the years to this newspaper and many other news papers, and the AP, and who the heck knows who all else. He's a bit overly obsessed.

Looked at the AP article on

Looked at the AP article on the Bengahzi hearing yesterday. The article failed to mention the special forces unit in Tripoli boarding bus to go to air transport to Bengahzi busy after the attack started. This unit was told to stand down. Failed to mention the changes between the CIA analysis and Susan Rice's talking points, some one altered the CIA analysis so Rice had lies to tell the American people. This letter is dead on.

it takes total commitment to a paradigm

to deny that ap is biased toward the big government liberals.
But, journalists (our own Augusta Chronicle opinion page excluded) are not our best and brightest...

bill ayers and scum like them have shaped college campuses in every form: lefty professors and instructors, curriculum, journalism especially. Unless you're gay, black, perverted by communistic tenets, vote for a living, of the hippie persuasion, wishing to share the wealth except your own, you probably see a problem here. The media is a left-wing, derriere kissing affront to civility and humanity.

Well if Mr. Obama was the

Well if Mr. Obama was the most Transparent president ever then he would have led the investigation himself. But what is transparent is the "obviously" want this to go away, they must have screwed up somehow (even Clinton seemed angry during her testimony which is a red flag), and if they wanted to get their facts straight why go all over spreadin' the video doodie. Any logical mind would have lots of questions with timelines, deception, etc. If this was a Rep president the Dems would already have him impeached. I guess we know how ineffective the Rep party really is. Obama doesn't have to lift a finger to destroy it because it is destroying itself. Rep go after the Attorney General of Obama over major issues with no effect, yet the Dem were able to unseat Gonzales for doing what every Att. Gen. before him had done. It's ridiculous. My hopes is once the Rep party is finally dead no one will care about party and the Dem party will become extinct-along with their perverse ideology of stealing, suppression, etc.

HA shot down two of us at once

What do we do different to Canadians. What specifically? And since when does anyone have to answer for things that they themselves did not do? I never owned anyone, nor has any living American.

And dahrees, this comment is utter nonsense that deserves no response.

"You like to huff and puff and always ask somebody to "prove" something to you, or to tell/ask them to leave the country if they do not agree with its foreign/domestic policies as you think they ought to work, but that's because you can't apply the difference between laws and ethics to yourself."

THIS MUST BE A RECORD EVEN FOR YOU !

The Vietnam War and the

The Vietnam War and the associated draft filled our colleges and universities with draft dodging Liberal Arts majors and drugged up hippies. Not having any particular skill or ability, those graduates became teachers, professors, and media people and took control of those systems. We turned total control of our education and media information systems over to them. Which explains how we got to this point today. We handed them the tools for training, indoctrination, and maintenance brainwashing of the last few generations. From pre-K through adulthood they have controlled what was taught and what people heard from the daily news. So why are we surprised that our schools teach our kids exactly the opposite of what they should be taught and that the majority of the media spins the news into exactly the opposite of what is really happening? Success is bad, socialism is good, debt is nothing to worry about, welfare is okay, confiscating from some to give to others is not only good but is "social justice", you can't look a little harder at a segment of the population from which 99% of terrorists attacks originate because it is somehow "unfair", illegal immigration is okay they should be subsidized when they get here. We have allowed our education system and media to make us really stupid. So stupid that the rest of the world just laughs at us. We have NO common sense anymore and we apparently no longer have the backbone to turn things around.

I'm still waiting on Techfan

I'm still waiting on Techfan to comment on the information discussed yesterday concerning, number of Embassy attacks and no Americans killed during the Bush administration and number of Embassy attacks during the Obama administration (so far) where 4 American's have been killed. Typical of Dem's though, you prove their false accussations with data and they just completely ignore the discussion. Techfan isn't the only one......where is "Truth Matters" and "dahreese" been lately?

The bullfrog has been boiled and cooked

Dichotomy is right on point. Over the last 40+ years the media has gradually increased its liberal/leftist (sorry to repeat myself) indoctrinational heat on the public until now it is full blown bias to such an extent there really is no nation wide conservative or nonbias news service. The leftists, just as the communists do, think in terms of generations to achieve their goals of destroying the foundations of the USA. They began with Teddy Roosevelt and are now at their high water mark with obama.

Let us never forget

Remember the AP's story just prior to the 2012 election that there would be wide-spread rioting across the nation if obama DIDN'T win? I believe that had a major impact on peace loving Americans, and swung the election. There ought to be an investigation on that. I don't give a moment of my time to the main stream media, and never will.

The Biggest Problem is the American People

Yesterday I was listening on FOX news radio the testimony of the individuals who have been called "whistleblowers" in the Benghazi investigation. At around one o'clock, breaking news came on that there was a verdict in the Jodi Arias case. FOX and CNN discontinued there coverage of Benghazi testimony and focused the entire afternoon waiting for that verdict to be announced. Obviously, both networks knew that most of the American people were more interested in the Jodi Arias trial than a possible cover up in the United States government.
