Associated Press: Can It Be Trusted?

Michelle Malkin nabbed the AP making class war amid a tragedy with 14 deaths.

“BUTTE, Mont. (AP) – Three California families headed to a retreat for the ultrarich were among the 14 victims of a plane crash in Montana.”

“Ultrarich” here seems unnecessary and a violation of the rule telling writers to put up front “who, what, when where and why.”

In fact, why is “ultrarich” in the story at all.

We found the Associated Press responsible for an even greater harm this last weekend when they reported on protests at the homes of AIG executives.

The AP never bothered to find out or, more likely, ignored the fact that the protesters were from ACORN and probably paid for their time.

Too bad.  We just cannot trust the AP any more…

    The Associated Press also employs biased terms to describe issues such as gun control and abortion.
