Associated Press Distortion Exposed

AP all but claims Ron Paul has never gotten out of single digits (and seems surprised "has made no move to withdraw"), contradicting their OWN results reporting (links provided)!: http://voxpolitico.blogspot.com/

No Surprise: AP is very biased on everything. Read Reuters

Read Reuters instead.

Seriously, AP is supposed to only provide bare-bones facts, but they distort the truth by leaving out a LOT of very important information.

I learned that last year when I wrote an article on how the American and British press framed Putin for Litvinenko's murder. During my research I uncovered quite a bit about how AP deliberately does not report positive Russian news to America, and that they distort everything to appear negative. That is why everyone here hates Putin. It is all lies. Reuters, on the other hand, only reports facts, and they have a good record of providing both sides of the story.

And there are ALWAYS 2 sides to every story. Do NOT believe anything you hear through the American press - it all comes through AP (they all have Reuters too, but they still don't report all the facts).

That's an interesting angle...
I certainly am under the impression that Putin has been shutting down dissent (print and TV) and engineering continued rule for himself. Are these based on flawed reporting?

"Do NOT believe anything you hear through the American press"
I think it's a good idea to check out most important stories in multiple independent sources. But I wouldn't say that's unique to American press. Then again, my brother is a newspaper reporter who has had stories picked up by the AP. ;)
