Journalism by Press Release


Paul at Wizbang today featured an article on the AP’s running of a propaganda piece as news. Are we surprised that this press release was put out by an enviromental group.

This strikes me as part of the internal bias of the AP. If they were to put out press releases as news by both Conservative and Liberal organizations, that would be bad, but understandable. Instead anything conservative goes through the meat grinder to find the slightest flaw while liberal organizations are treated with kid gloves.

I know, I know, more whining by a conservative. But it is still annoying as can be. Could the next revolution be a division of the AP/Rueters conglomeration to have a Conservative News Organzation. This would allow AP to at least be honest about where they come from.
