Has AP Become 'Actually Pravda' For Hillary's Campaign?
June 9th, 2016 6:21 AM
Until very recently, those of us who follow the routine instances of journalistic malfeasance committed at the Associated Press only thought that its writers are so enamored of the idea of a Hillary Clinton presidency that they simply accept her campaign's spin as the gospel truth and willingly dress it up as "objective news."

AP Not Wild About Terms 'His Husband' Or 'Her Wife,' Causing LGBT Lobb
February 15th, 2013 7:08 AM
After the libertine left howled that that the Associated Press decided not to use routinely the word "homophobia," it's not surprising the same people are upset that AP stylebook sultans would rule that "husband" and "wife" should not be used routinely to describe "gay marriages." The Huffington Post apparently can't read. They call this a "…
