Warren's Hostile Anti-Sessions Tweetstorm Gets Scant Press Attention
February 12th, 2017 8:10 PM
Elizabeth Warren has become a heroine of the establishment press and the left — but I repeat myself — after deliberately violating Senate Rule 19 against "imput(ing) to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator" Tuesday evening in criticizing Trump administration Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions. The…
Pew's Middle-Class Study Pretends Obama-Era Trend Started in 2000
June 3rd, 2016 10:51 PM
A Pew Research report published three weeks ago on America’s Shrinking Middle Class presented a fundamentally misleading narrative which the press was only too eager to relay and continues to use, namely that the middle class has been seriously shrinking since the turn of the century. Christopher Rugaber at the Associated Press typified the initial press coverage, writing: "In nearly…
AP Hides the Obama Era's Poverty Rise, Household Income Decline
September 16th, 2015 5:21 PM
From its "Don't read this story, it's boring" headline to its obfuscating content, today's coverage at the Associated Press, aka the Administration's Press, of the Census Bureau's 2014 report on income and poverty in the United States was all about ensuring that readers know as little as possible about the declining incomes and disheartening increases in…
AP Falsely Claims Reported Poverty Drop is 'First Since 2006'
September 18th, 2014 12:09 AM
As been its habit since Barack Obama took office in 2009, the Associated Press has, whenever possible, considered the impact of news developments on the President and his party as far more important than what's actually happening in the lives of real people.
The latest example is the wire service's coverage of Tuesday's Census Bureau report on income, poverty and health insurance…

On Friday, the Supreme Court issued a one-paragraph order in Little Sisters of the Poor et al v. Sebeluis et al.

Memo to All AP Propagandists: It's Okay to Call It 'ObamaCare' Now
March 27th, 2012 1:16 PM
Apparently most reporters at the Associated Press, aka the Administration's Propagandists, lost the memo that Reuters got ("Obama Campaign: Obamacare Not a Bad Word After All"). Either that, or they haven't been paying attention their Obama For America emails.
OFA and President Obama himself both say it's now okay to call the fraudulently named Affordable Care Act which…
AP Demotes Unanimity of Supremes' Decision on Religious Workers' Right
January 11th, 2012 5:34 PM
We can forgive Pittsburgh Steelers for avoiding the mention of the name of a certain quarterback who plays for the Denver Broncos in the coming days.
Related forgiveness does not extend to Jesse J. Holland at the Associated Press concerning his coverage of the Supreme Court's u-u-u-unanimous ruling today that religious workers cannot sue for job discrimination. As seen here at a Weekly…
Nobel Consideration of Adult Stem Cell Researcher Should Be Teachable
October 4th, 2010 8:05 AM
Do the science writers and political reporters at the Associated Press ever compare notes? Based on their divergent coverage of stem cell research, it seems doubtful. On Sunday, AP science writer Milan Rising reported that a Japanese scientist was under probable consideration to win this year's Nobel Prize in medicine: A Japanese researcher who discovered how to make stem cells from ordinary…
AP Item on Judge's Embryonic Stem Cell Action Mostly Avoids Naming Adu
September 8th, 2010 12:03 AM
In a Tuesday evening report, Associated Press Writer Jesse L. Holland engaged in a great deal of word massage which appears to have been designed to mislead relative newcomers to discussions about stem cell research. The news concerned Federal Judge Royce Lamberth's refusal of the federal government's request that he lift his August 23 order blocking federal funding for embryonic stem cell…
