Is the AP Campaigning for Hussein? (vanity)
AP on Yahoo

Posted on 08/21/2008 12:50:20 PM PDT by KingSnorky

I just logged into my Yahoo account and these were the featured Associated Press headlines:

"A housing issue: McCain not sure how many they own (AP)"

"Governor: Kaine thinks he's on Obama's short list (AP)"

"Obama inspires black Republicans to switch parties (AP)"

"Campaigns vie over whether McCain is Bush clone (AP)"

"Obama casts McCain as rich, out of touch (AP)"

My only question is, does Hussein Obama's campaign pay the AP a retainer?

No need. The AP is Obama's b**ch.

Does a bear poop in the woods?

It will not matter. The Round-Heeled Media has lost it’s stranglehold on the American Electorate. They will do everything they can for Obama, and he will lose anyway.

Whenever dems start bringing up McCain’s rich wife, please remind them of John Kerry’s millionaire wife.

Why does Obama need to have a rapid response team when they have the AP? The journalistic community should be embarrassed by the bias at the AP. But then again, THEY ARE the AP.

Yahoo has never been about fairness in their presentation of the news.

Looks like you are beginning to catch on..

I may look like a newb to old-timers like you,, but Amalgamated Propaganda being slanted to the left has not exactly been a state secret. ;-)

Imagine the frustration of the leftist media (excuse the redundancy) at its inability to put their guy in the White House in spite of 24/7 cheerleading and protection!! Gore, Kerry...both were reputed to be shoe-ins before reality struck. Maybe the knuckle-dragging American public is not quite as dumb as elitist media phoneys are pleased to believe??!!

Oh my gosh--you read my mind! I was just about to post this:

And the AP headlines (paraphrased) on Yahoo are (I kid you not):



Barry blasts McCain about his houses

Kaine hopes he'll be Obama's VP

What the VP picks are up to today

Barry's magic makes black Repubs become Dems

Veep Sheet: Obama meets Kaine's staff (Politico)

Both camps compete over McCain being W's twin

I don’t know if it is true of all page views of Yahoo News but there is a ranking/rating of stories based on click throughs and there used to be a 5 star rating or something to “rate” the news.

The Left used to “vote up” certain stories and “vote down” other stories to supress some reports.

Such is the internet.

McCain should come out and say, “My wife is an independent woman of independent means...it’s one of the things I admire most about her. There are homes we own together and investment properties that she owns through her family’s trust and her own investing. Those are not my business but in order to answer the question, I would have to respectfully consult with her...I don’t know that that is a problem or a testimony to how far professional women have come in America. Senator Obama may believe that his wife shouldn’t have an independent professional life, I don’t know. However, that kind of control over a professional woman would never fly in ANY of our houses.” LOL.

You should listen to NPR. Their news broadcast is all about Afghanistan and Georgia, and the rest is devoted to Barak Obama. It’s like listening to a 20-minute ad. They love to use words like attack and condemn when describing McCain’s ads, and to dwell on the lamentable fact that McCains ads are negative. Poor Barak! They seem to think that McCain should stop being a racist, and step aside so Barak can assume the mantle of the Presidency that he obviously deserves.

This thread is my explanation of why the Associated Press - and thus journalism at large - is different from the newspapers of the founding era in that AP journalism claims objectivity whereas pre-AP newspapers did not.
