AP Flat out lied about booing Clintons health (Audio of cheers!)
Fox News Audio ^

Posted on 09/03/2004 7:21:09 PM PDT by Phantom Lord

Here is the audio of President Bush announcing Clintons health issue at a campaign apperance. The AP reported the crowd booed and it is getting picked up as fact all over the planet.

IT IS A FLAT OUT LIE!

Search your local papers tomorrow morning for the AP wire story on this, or any inhouse stories saying the crowd booed. Then write a letter to the editor for publication pointing out the lie and include in it a URL to the audio.

My disappointment in Fox's report is that it was many hours after the AP story came out, yet no mention of the AP flat out lying.

This has been caught on several threads throughout the day, but it is amazing at the level the media will stoop to try to slime Bush. Heads should roll over this, but instead I bet a promotion is given.

Drudge now says AP retracts booing part, that "uncertainty" of crowd reaction led to pulling of that graf.

Boos, cheers, easily confused. Probably just an honest mistake by the media. Could have happened to anybody.

I just saw this newsclip and didn't hear a single boo. The other lie that was told is that President Bush did nothing to stop the "boos."

I just heard the clip and all I could discern that could have possibly been considered a "boo" was a "woo". But, I have always been under the impression that a "woo" was a good thing.

AP'tards down on their knees for Kerry...again.

NBC Dateline just played the video with plenty of audio, and there was only cheering for Clinton's recovery. Not even a single boo. Bush made us proud, he didn't have to coach anyone to make the audience make a respectful response. The same thing that happened when Cheney mentioned Kerry's service to our country and the convention cheered.

According to Drudge, the AP is now saying that maybe the audience applauded clinton. Next thing you know, they'll spin it as a plug for Billy Jeff.

If they applauded, they applauded Bush's magnificent decency and the way he consistently tries to speak well of his predecessor in spite of clinton's vindictive attacks on him. It's very doubtful that they applauded the Sinkmeister.

I found this without much of a problem. It has the booing and blames Bush for doing nothing to gag his audience.

But really, what would some boos mean, even if there were some? They could be booing the illness rather than the man. It would then be a reporter's interpretation. But it's clear there were no boos anyway.

I listened to the audio, but it wasn't necessary. Had there really been boos, the AP headline would have been:

"Bush Loses Base; Booed by Party Faithful"

The MSM is soooooooooo predictable.

The funniest thing in all this is that Mrs. Clinton took that opportunity at her news conference to tout there health insurance!

Can they not even have a heart attack without political soap box? Got to love em... They keep me smilin...

Below....
Sen. Clinton said her husband would "be back in fighting form before really very long after the surgery and the period of necessary recovery passes."

She praised the hospital's medical staff and saying: "We're delighted we have good health insurance. That makes a big difference. And I hope someday everybody will be able to say the same thing."

WTF?

It unquestionably sounded like cheers and applause in affirmation of what the president said, wishing Clinton the best.

I am truly shocked by this. (not)

It is incredulous that the AP (or CNNABCBSNBCNYT) actually believes they can make up news about events that tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of people witness, plus are being recorded on videotape and easily checked.

Talk about gaul.

Wonder when/how/if other media outlets will report this?

This is really particulary nasty. I heard the soundbite earlier on the news and the crowd clearly cheers for Clinton, no booing. How much more is this media going to do to destroy President Bush? I understand they even said President Bush did nothing to stop them! This is war folks!

Oh how different (and better!) we'd be if we could have exposed the lies of the mainstream media employees over the past forty years. Many knew but were helpless compared to today.

For example, the Cronkite lies about the Tet Offensive. If we had stopped the North Vietnam Communists' "most trusted man in America" could we have gotten North Vietnam to the peace agreement years earlier? I think so. Hundreds of thousands of people would still be alive.

when people wooo! it is a high pitched yell. When people boo, it's a lower toned yell. I dont hear any low piched yells so it's safe to assume they're all wooos!

Did anyone watch the BBC news tonight. It is carried on some local PBS stations.

They showed a video clip of the Bush remarks with cheering right after he announced Clinton's health problem.

THEN, the news reader said the crowd booed!!!

These MSM idiots are pathetic.

WABC radio never misses a chance to bash the president. Their reporter who goes everywhere with the President commented that the crowd politely applauded when the President asked for prayers for the former President.

Exactly. In fact, the "woo" was the only thing that even remotely (and only because it ends in the same vowels) resembled a boo, so the AP story characterizing it as a boo is totally absurd.

The main point is: at this moment, the mainstream Democratic press has adopted the modus operandi of the Kerry campaign in general: spinning is no longer adequate, they are making up stories out of whole cloth.

The AP is also running a story about how Arnold falsified his childhood memories of seeing Soviet tanks. I've found a link to their story, and a link to his speech. I'm working on a post now.

Guess who is spinning?

I posted the mp3 file referenced in this thread. Immediately the opposition began to insist that the crowd reaction was cut off to hide the booing.

I have made a longer clip from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel (which posted an audio file of the entire rally). The longer clip includes ALL the crowd reaction. Please check my blog:

and you will find the new mp3 at the very end of the (currently) top article "Boo Who".

In fact, as President Bush made the announcement about Clinton you could clearly hear many "oh, no"s from the audience.

Obviously, the AP has worse hearing than I do!

In defense of the AP, they've got folks all over the middle-east, claiming to be reporters but really agents reporting back to the CIA and Mossad and several other intelligence agencies not necessarily friendly to the mullahs of the false prophet. The AP has to try to build some street cred and one way to do that is to fabricate facts that cause the dog-boinking rag heads to believe that they, too, are anti-American and anti-Bush. This gets very risky. Word is that an AP guy in Teheran is banging the daughters of two different members of the ruling council. He needs all the cover he can get.
