Even in death, conservatives can’t get an even break – especially from the Associated Press. Writer J.P. Freire caught the supposedly neutral news service bashing the late Margaret Thatcher in her obituary, while lionizing socialist nutball Hugo Chavez in his obit just one month earlier.

To AP, Britain’s first woman prime minister was an autocrat who “imposed her will,” by “breaking the unions,” until she was pushed out by a “mutiny.” “Love her or loathe her,” the obituary began. It was obvious which one AP chose. And all that in the first 70 words recalling her 11 years of service to Britain and the world.

Then there’s Hugo Chavez, who AP called a “fiery populist,” who “crusaded” and “championed.” AP didn’t even hint at Chavez’s controversial nature until the third paragraph and there they still softened the criticism. “He polarized Venezuelans with his confrontational and domineering style, yet was also a masterful communicator and strategist who tapped into Venezuelan nationalism to win broad support, particularly among the poor,” wrote AP.
Associated Press bias obvious even in Thatcher, Chavez obituaries | Fox News

Hacked AP tweets explosions at White House injures President Obama causing DOW Jones to plunge 100 points.

A terrifying report of explosions at the White House injuring President Obama caused the DOW Jones Industrial average to plunge 100 points after the Associated Press' Twitter account was allegedly hacked.

'Breaking: Two Explosions in the White House and Barack Obama is injured,' the news agency Tweeted just after 1pm on Tuesday.

The White House and AP quickly assured the public that the report was not true but word didn't appear to come fast enough to those frantically responding on Wall Street.

The Media AND Wall Street. Absurd.

Nancy Grace and Ashleigh Banfield Hold Split-Screen Interview in Same Parking Lot - Dashiell Bennett and Philip Bump - The Atlantic Wire





*sigh*


CNN has completely fallen off the wagon. Not even going to talk about their shitty reporting during the Boston bombing incident.

^^^ Too damn funny. Banfield is probably set up right behind Grace in the lot behind with the vehicle in Grace's background blocking Banfield from view.

For anyone interested in the media's attempted (and thus far successful) manipulation of society, please take a look at the reporting of the Malmo riots.

Notice anything?

More that where it is being reported it being mis-reported to a degree that's alarming.

Anyone else see a bit of hypocrisy in this headline:

Regardless of the rest of the story, the headline is just ridiculous.

As intimidating as a parent counting down from three when you're a teenager (unless that kind of thing scares you). I'm sure some dullard somewhere is thinking "Well, THAT will show them we mean business!".

I blame SS.

That's exactly it. And the teen Syria knows that the counting is showboat and ultimately it'll be a slap on the wrist at most
