Skip to comments.AP CAUGHT LYING: No boos at Bush rally in Wisconsin (I was there)
Posted on 09/03/2004 1:04:48 PM PDT by Trust but Verify
I wouldn't have posted this as a separate topic until I heard on the radio on the way home from the rally that the AP had reported the crowd booed when it was annnounced that the former president had been hospitalized. That is a bold faced lie. I understand it was later retracted, but that's like unringing a bell. I do not think it was in error, either, since the writer further stated that 'Bush did nothing to stop them.' Shameful.
The rally was amazing. I don't know how many were in attendance, but the crowd could not have been more enthusiastic. I could be wrong (but I don't think so) but I don't think there's any question Bush will win in Wisconsin. I have worked for campaigns before, and been to rally's before, but I have never witnessed the fervor I did today.
I have pictures in one-hour processing right now (I am resisting the purchase of a digital camera) and when I get them back, I'll try to post them. If anyone can tell me how to do it, please FReepmail me.
does your internet provider give you free web space with your account? That's probably the easiest way to post the pictures.
P.s. - get a digital camera - but wait until the thanksgiving sales for bargains.
If you don't mind, I'll post what you have to say over at iwon where some libs have fallen for the ap line hook, line, and sinker. , even though I pointed out that I have seen what the president said and did not hear any booing.
Drudge is now reporting the AP story WITH the section about booing. You have it exactly right..the AP told a total lie but now we have to spend forever removing the lie to get to the truth. I'm more than a little disappointed in Drudge.
I wonder if druge actually saw the clip.
Good reporting. I saw it on TV and no one booed. The audience respectfully clapped in support of Bush's concerned remarks on Clinton's health.
The media are spitballs.
Please consider asking the mod to retitle the thread to include something like "AP LIED".
You have my consent. This is a media dirty trick.
I didn't hear any boos when I saw the comments on telivision.
If you want to post pictures, go to http://www.photobucket.com and open an account there... it's free... would love to see pictures!
CAN YOU SAY DOUBLE DIGIT LEAD, http://www.time.com/time/press_releases/article/0,8599,692562,00.html, The press haste W and they will say anything. Thanks for letting people know you were there. I may have cheared, not booed.
People mentioned that Hannity has disputed the original AP lie on his radio program this afternoon.
liberal media trying to make news instead of reporting news
There may have been no boos at the Bush rally, but last night there was a lot of booze at the Kerry rally.
Michael Medved has some idiot writer whos claiming that the podium Bush spoke from last night was a "gigantic cross".
If there was a cross I didn't see it. Besides it couldn't have been more than 4 feet tall. hardly gigantic if it even existed.
"This is a media dirty trick."
Get ready for lots, lots more.
Let Drudge know. He's got this claim up in red linked on his site.
