Associated Press: We Report, We Decide, We Defend Obama

Barack Obama released his medical records. He was in perfect health, except for a colonoscopy that revealed a benign polyp and several A.P. reporters. The polyp was removed, but, as evidenced below, the reporters remain.

I was reading a “news” item about author Jerome Corsi, who was kicked out of Kenya before he could pitch his anti-Obama book there (Kenya loves Obama but not freedom of speech? — you do the math). At the end of the story, Barack Obama’s defense team — otherwise known as the Associated Press — tacked on a few sentences in order to editorialize and do Obama’s bidding:

Corsi’s book claims the Illinois senator is a dangerous, radical candidate for president and includes innuendoes and false rumors — that he was raised a Muslim and attended a radical black church.

Obama is a Christian who attended Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, and is campaign picks apart the book’s claims on the Web site

Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, of which the Obamas were members, isn’t a radical church? Wow, somebody owes Reverend Jeremiah “God damn America” Wright an apology.

As for the Muslim accusations, the A.P. first needs to have a chat with Muammar Gaddafi (click the picture of Muammar looking like Magglio Ordóñez delivering the keynote address at the Madrid Policeman’s Ball for the video):


On most days, it’s virtually impossible to tell the difference between an Obama campaign press release and an A.P. story.

Today’s challenge: Find any A.P. story on McCain and/or Palin that goes on to attempt to debunk any allegation against them or guides readers to

Update: Thomas Lifson at The American Thinker discusses how Obama was “groomed by an older generation of radical leftists for insertion into the American political process.”

In other words, have you ever seen the movie No Way Out? Obama is kind of like Yuri. At least, that’s the allegation, but I’ll leave it up to the A.P. to say “Nuh uh!”
