Jonathan Last at Galley Slaves noted them in the piece I linked to....He remarks that the reputation of all are on the line. I want to know who is responsible. He should be fired.
AP needs to make an apology and put a specific retraction over the wires.
Many places are still reporting and printing stories that indicate the corwd, or some in the corwd were booing.
There was no booing according to eyewitnesses, none on the audio tapes or video. If there was any bad behaviour it was de minimis and one would hardly expect President Bush to notice it over the cheers, since nobody else can.
And there was even bigger applause from the crowd when President Bush wished Clinton a "swift and speedy recovery". I even saw some young kid behind the President waving a foam finger.
I know. And more egregious than even the booing lie was the tacking on of the snotty "President Bush did nothing to stop them". The image that is intended to create in the reader's mind makes me sick.
