AP has power over truth

What has a newspaper’s naming the home town of a local golf winner got to do with the dangerous hold that the national media has?

 

It illustrates how the Associated Press takes control of the country, the politics and the truth on any issue that it wants to. And there is no penalty.

The local newspaper listed professional golfer Kevin Kisner’s hometown of Aiken on the front page of the May 29 issue, and noted in the first sentence of the lead sports story, “By Stephen Hawkins, Associated Press — Aiken’s Kevin Kisner…” (wins the Colonial tournament in Fort Worth, Texas).

So, what’s wrong with that? There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s just that it proves he’s from Aiken. So? So, if he ever ran for president of Kenya, that headline and story could be used to show he wasn’t qualified because he wasn’t born there.

So, what if former U.S. president Barrack Obama had a headline in the June 27, 2004, Kenyan Standard which said, “Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate”? With the headline being written by local Kenyan editors, who knew he was born in Kenya, with the story by AP?

Couldn’t that be used to show he was born in Kenya and couldn’t be president of the U.S.? Well, it could if liberal AP wanted to stop a fellow Democrat from becoming president, which it didn’t. So it hid the story and led to a bogus presidency. Provable.

How did AP get power over the truth? By being part of a double monopoly, in that 95 percent of daily newspapers are a monopoly, and so is AP as the top, and often only, provider of worldwide news and sports, and you either subscribe to AP or some other newspaper will. So, liberal AP writes what it wants about Republican Trump, with no complaints from newspapers or readers.

No more laughing at the Dark Ages, since we worship at the feet of fake news. We’re the dummies, now.
