AP FACT CHECK: Distortion in Trumpís impeachment defense (mega BARF alert)
The Albuquerque Journal ^ | January 20, 2020 | Hope Yen and Calvin Woodward / Associated Press

WASHINGTON — In his first formal response to impeachment charges, President Donald Trump misrepresented the testimony of a key witness who described an exchange of favors in the Ukraine matter.

The claim marked a week of frequent exaggeration and distortion by the president heading into the opening statements of his impeachment trial.

Just as his tax cuts are far from the biggest in history, the economy isn’t the best ever and his election victory in 2016 was no landslide of historic proportions, Trump’s two trade deals don’t stand atop the field of presidential endeavors. One is a partial settlement of trade grievances with China; the other is a refresh of what past presidents created for North America.

Lengthy article with AP dutifully presenting the Democratic talking points. At FR we can only post several sentences (thank goodness), but the AP wire service sending it to local newspapers will ensure wide distribution. (Just to be "fair" the article comes up with a couple of Bernie and Biden mis-speaks, but the emphasis is on Trump.)

I don't recommend reading the article as I posted just to demonstrate how the fake news is in the bag for the Democrats. Readers of local newspapers will no doubt get to see this, maybe with a different headline.

Bill Clinton’s Impeachment trial the talking point was it was OK to get a blow job because he voted the right way on abortion and lying and bribing people and threatening people Underoath no problem because he supported abortion

The effin media can’t even let Trump have his day in court. At some point the media has to be accountable for its malpractice.

So right.

Many years ago Rush said AP used to be an ordinary middle of the road reporting source used by papers all over the country. Now it has turned totally liberal biased. Don't trust anything you read there. (paraphrased)

They and MSN seem to compete to toss out anything pro-Trump and carefully watch for anything they can spin against him. "Five Things That Show Trump Was Wrong" "Insiders Say Trump is Going To Resign Like Nixon" "Worst Mistakes Trump Tried To Cover Up." Sheesh.

Idiots. You can’t fact check broad subjective statements. Words like “best” are just that. It is like saying “in my opinion”. Are these so called fact checkers serious?

AP long ago gave up any pretense of being an honest, unbiased, objective news syndicate. Now known as the anti-Trump, MARXIST,All Propaganda syndicate.

#13. Let’s try AP as “Anal Press” or “Anal Probe” syndicate, because they are full of crap. For that matter, so is Albuquerque.
