AP Editor, Reporter Fired Over Erroneous McAuliffe Story
Two weeks ago the Associated Press published a false report
that claimed Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe had lied to an investigator
during a federal fraud case. The story was retracted less than two hours later.
Monday, the AP fired
Bob Lewis, the reporter behind the story, and editor Dena Potter.
Without any consequence
to editors or reporters that I am aware of, in the recent past this same AP has
pro-abortion hashtag, referred the Hispanic George Zimmerman as "white,"
and rewrote President Obama's Gulf gaffe so that
it would not appear as a gaffe…
Apparently, falsehoods that damage a Democrat are more equal
than those that either protect one or their agenda.
