Associated Press Caught Lying?
Apparently Fabricated Story Released by Associated Press
In a shocking development, news watchdog Buzzflash.com has found an AP report that appears to be fabricated. Here is what Buzzflash.com discovered.
AP reporter Scott Lindlaw wrote: "After meeting with President Bush on Monday morning, Cheney was fielding energy questions from reporters in at least three radio interviews and sitting down with staff members to discuss a range of policy issues, said spokeswoman Juleanna Glover Weiss. "It's a typical day," she said."
The problem is, none of that had happened! Lindlaw's alleged report was dated 1:26 AM, more than six hours before Cheney's arrival at the White House.
As Buzzflash.com remarked, "This is something that you would expect coming out of the Kremlin during the Soviet era, not from the World's greatest democracy and its 'independent' press."
"How in the world can the AP explain this one, except that their reporter is really a White House Employee who loves to write fiction?"
