The AP is not even pretending to be conducting objective journalism anymore as you can see from their tweet two days ago:
It has been well documented that Hamas, a recognized terrorist organization, has been intentionally firing thousands of rockets at Israeli civilians while using Palestinian civilians as human shields, basing their attacks in hospitals, and hiding their rockets in schools.
Despite these grave war crimes and violation of any semblance of humanity, the mainstream media has bought into Hamas’s propaganda campaign. The terrorists want to be viewed as the victims, and somehow the media is buying into that narrative hook line and sinker.
This is right out of Hamas’s propaganda playbook, and AP is running with it as objective journalism.
The Associated Press is the world’s oldest and largest
newsgathering organization left leaning news commentary.
“The AP’s plan is to establish a news monopoly pure and simple.” ~ E.W. Scripps, founder of the first newspaper chain
E.W. Scripps sought to counter it by creating his own competitive wire service, the United Press (now United Press International). It was created by the 1907. Later he said, “I believe the most valuable service I have rendered to my country has been that of thwarting the plans of greater, abler, and richer men than myself to establish a monopoly of news in the United States, and hence a dominating influence over all the news of the country.” He said he formed the UPI “to secure freedom of the press in this country,” from an AP that sought to take it away. Despite success all the way into the 80’s, the UPI struggled in the 90’s and collapsed in recent times with 7 different owners between 1992 and 2000. It is now a holding of Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church, which also owns the Washington Times.
So we are left with every major news outlet in the U.S. regurgitating anything the AP (Associated Propaganda) passes down the wire as though it were the Gospel.
