AP in the Tank for Obama

Original Link:

By David Greenberg

The Associated Press has sunk to a new low in its biased reporting for Obama. I started seeing stories from them last night that Clinton was conceding tonight, contrary to all reports from her campaign.

Today is the kicker. On the top of Yahoo News is a huge headline from Reuters that says:

Clinton campaign says she's not conceding (

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is "absolutely not" planning to concede the campaign to Barack Obama on Tuesday night, Clinton campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe told CNN on Tuesday.

Yet, down in the Politics section is a headline from AP that reads:

Clinton set to concede delegate race to Obama:

Hillary Rodham Clinton will concede Tuesday night that Barack Obama has the delegates to secure the Democratic nomination, campaign officials said, effectively ending her bid to be the nation's first female president.

Both were posted about an hour ago as of this writing.

I am stunned. I have never in my lifetime seen such an obvious spin of propaganda from a wire service. The AP has been spinning stories for Obama for a while now and this takes the cake. What's the try to keep voters in Montana and South Dakota from voting for Hillary?

The AP has lost all credibility during this election. The people who are pushing these stories need to be fired and have their journalistic privileges revoked.
