AP Bashes Christine O'Donnell With Bill Maher's 'Witchcraft' Video Clip

The Associated Press is using a video clip that Bill Maher showed on HBO's "Real Time" Friday to bash Delaware Republican senatorial nominee Christine O'Donnell.

Here's the headline:

Bill Maher Digs Up O'Donnell 'Witchcraft' Clip 

Inside the piece, things got even dicier:

Since O'Donnell's upset of nine-term Rep. Mike Castle, opponents have unearthed unflattering age-old television clips. The most recent was aired by comedian Bill Maher, who dug up one of O'Donnell's appearances on his "Politically Incorrect" show in 1999.

The context of what led to her comments is not clear, and O'Donnell is laughing while she talks.

"I dabbled into witchcraft. I never joined a coven," she said. " ... I hung around people who were doing these things. I'm not making this stuff up. I know what they told me they do," she said.

"... One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar, and I didn't know it. I mean, there's little blood there and stuff like that," she said. "We went to a movie and then had a little midnight picnic on a satanic altar."

Maher said on "Real Time with Bill Maher" that he has more clips of O'Donnell and will continue to air them until she appears on his show. 

Here's what actually happened on Friday's "Real Time":

So, a conservative hater like Maher has numerous video clips of O'Donnell which he is going to air on his program likely every week until Election Day, and the nation's leading wire service apparently is going to keep its readers apprised of their contents.

And people think there's a liberal bias in the media.
