Associated Press: A Full Court Press Against Sarah Palin
The latest Associated Press masterpiece of journalistic malpractice: a headline that goes right to the edge of saying Sarah Palin called Barack Obama a terrorist (which she did not): Palin defends terrorist comment against Obama.
They’re parroting Obama campaign propaganda, word for word, and doing everything they can to minimize William Ayers’ terrorist acts.
But while Ayers and Obama are acquainted, the charge that they “pal around” is a stretch of any reading of the public record. And it’s simply wrong to suggest that they were associated while Ayers was committing terrorist acts. Obama was 8 years old at the time the Weather Underground claimed credit for numerous bombings and was blamed for a pipe bomb that killed a San Francisco policeman.
Can you spot the world’s biggest straw man in that highlighted sentence?
