    After falsely reporting that a crowd President Bush was speaking to booed after he wished President Clinton a speedy recovery from heart surgery, the Associated Press has refused to identify the reporter who filed the story or say what punishment he or she might face. The original report stated: "A crowd at a Bush rally in West Allis, Wis., booed when President Bush offered ex-President Clinton best wishes for a speedy recovery from coronary bypass surgery scheduled for next week." Milwaukee talk radio stations WTMJ and WISN were first to debunk the report. At WTMJ, talk-show host Jeff Wagner's producer,...

    Several have mentioned the false report from the AP that there were boo's when President Bush asked for prayers for President Clinton before his surgery. This event was the first big rally in Wisconsin after the convention. I was there. The report was totally false, there were no boos. Powerline blog has done legwork to locate contact emails and has framed the issue at this link. Just a couple of sentences to these emails will require AP to reconsider the efficacy of publishing lies rather than straight reporting.

    At press time (3 a.m. Tuesday), the Associated Press still had failed to respond to inquiries by Men’s News Daily regarding the false story that it published on Friday afternoon. As reported here yesterday, Friday’s, Associated Press (AP) story by Tom Hays, Ron Fournier, Frank Eltman, David Hammer and Marc Humbert reported that a crowd of thousands at a Bush rally that day in Wisconsin booed Pres. Bush’s news that Pres. Clinton had been hospitalized with chest pains and faced bypass surgery, and Bush’s prayers and best wishes for Clinton’s speedy recovery. The AP, a wire service founded in 1848,...

    Several readers have written to let us know that the email address for Tom Hays, the reporter who wrote the false AP story about a Republican crowd booing the announcement of Bill Clinton's hospitalization in West Allis, Wisconsin, and President Bush doing "nothing to stop them." It is thays@ap.org. I have written Mr. Hays to ask whether he has anything to say in his own defense. I also asked him whether he was actually at the rally. I promised Mr. Hays that if he has anything to say for himself, we will gladly print it, and millions will see his...

    On Friday the AP falsely reported that a crowd at a Bush rally booed the news that Bill Clinton had been hospitalized, and President Bush "did nothing to stop them." On Friday afternoon, an Associated Press (AP) story reported that a crowd at a Bush rally in Wisconsin, responded to President Bush's news that former President Clinton had been hospitalized with chest pains and faced bypass surgery, and Bush's best wishes for Clinton's speedy recovery, with boos.

    Karen gets results! A little more on the boo-a-rama, from a reporter on the scene ... "Karen Hughes went totally apesh-t at the AP when that dispatch hit the wire. She stormed up the bleachers and starting screaming at the AP writer (who took it in stride). "They didn't boo! Were you and I in the same rally! What is this crap?" or something along those lines (it was loud in there). The AP writer then canvassed his colleagues, who all said they hadn't heard any boos. Say what you want about McClellan ("dreadful briefer," "talking points only"), I don't...

The sources said the group in question was not believed to be al-Qaida.

    Booing the AP When the AP story about a Republican crowd booing President Bush's well-wishes for Bill Clinton first broke at 2:12 p.m., the story carried the byline of Tom Hays. After coming under fire, the AP pulled the story down. The original link now brings you to a dead page. After a brief interlude, the AP reposted the story, minus the claims that the crowd had booed Clinton's heart scare. The revised story is here. It carries the time stamp of 2:31 p.m. and, curiously, no byline. It also carried no mention of the story's previous version, nor any...
