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.
"I agree the person should be fired. They won't be. "
They will be PROMOTED!!!!
You done good. The bloggers are on the case.
Yes, Laverne and Shirley, plus Happy Days in Milwaukee.
I was there too. Clinton was extended an very warm get well cheer from the audience when the President told us of his condition. It was kinda like when an injured player from the opposing team gets up off the football field after suffering a major hit. The crowd was kind to Clinton. Otherwise, it was a major success. The roof almost came off the place when the president stepped out on stage. Chills up and down the spine. We are totally excited about Bush here in Wisconsin.
This pathetic source just takes the AP for granted and reports the boos.
Happy Days, Beer, Harley, Beer, Schlitz, Beer, Summerfest, Beer, Cheese, Beer, American Graffiti, Beer, Blues Brothers bridge, Beer...............
at the end of his show he said he believes the ap reporter may be scott lindlaw.
I don't know about those, what is the advantage?
Druge as a audio link up proving no boos... AP needs to be slamed hard on this
I am an American living abroad. The BBC is reporting the booing like it is the honest truth, complete with appalled faces on the anchor and the reporter. Really shows you how the media bias works. IT IS ALL LIES......
This is So Frustrating! I recorded the speech and have AUDIO PROOF that there were NO Boo's
Folks, I heard a newsclip of this on the radio (before I heard that he was booed), and I remember thinking, "wow, no one booed"...in fact there was applause when the President asked them to pray.
Don't get mad. Just think "Thank you AP for moving WI from a barely blue state to the red states. Thank you for 10 more electoral votes."
I saw it on 6:00 PM news too. Absolutely a polite crowd with no booing. I think it was NBC. At least some of the alphabet media carried it, so some libs will be able to discern the truth of the matter.
I am hooked on the BBC America programs on home makeovers and was watching one this evening. It ended while I was in another room and when I returned the BBC World News had come on. They were right in the middle of reporting this and they did indeed report that the crowd booed. I saw that rally live this afternoon. I did not hear boos and was appalled to hear it being reported that way. But that's the BBC. Sheesh.
The biased reporter needs to be fired, NOW. I heard the soundbite, and they cheered, which is the proper thing to do.
NBC dateline is just RIGHT NOW about to air the video of Bush's wishes to Clintons health. Let's listen for any boos.
Why not an email avalanche to the AP.
