AP Under Fire for Palin Fact-Check. Sent 11 Reporters to Fact Check Palin's Book, But None Sent to Check Obama's Book Written By Bill Ayers..???

We all know the AP and others in the liberal media are too stupid to figure out that Obama's book was written by Bill Ayers. Even when Ayers admitted to a conservative blogger while in a Starbucks at the airport that he had wrote it, whether he was joking or not, it wouldn't matter. It's not just the bias that prevent these so-called journalist's from doing research and honest objective reporting, it's that they're really dumb 'sheep.' They just hear information somewhere and re-report it. (Unless it's the culture of corruption in the democratic party, they just ignore it.) You have an angry failed sportscaster, a snarky lesbian with a philosophy degree and a bi-curious man who has a mancrush on Barack Hussein Obama, who gets tingly feelings and thrills up his leg when the President speaks, all reporting the news on MSNBC every night...Oh it's dead alright...

The Associated Press is struggling to defend its decision to assign a fleet of 11 reporters to pore over the facts in Sarah Palin's best-selling memoir "Going Rogue: An American Life."

The news agency was thrown on the defensive after critics -- including Palin herself -- charged she was being singled out for investigation when the AP savaged her book as inaccurate. (Story continues below)

They noted that President Obama, whose two best-selling memoirs helped propel him to national fame, didn't receive any fact-checking.

Last week, the AP sent news organizations a story headlined "Fact check: Palin's book goes wrong on some facts," citing several discrepancies in accounts of her tenure as governor of Alaska and other matters.

Palin shot back with a Facebook post:

"Imagine that. 11 AP reporters dedicating time and resources to tearing up the book, instead of using the time and resources to 'fact check' what's going on with Sheik Mohammed's trial, Pelosi's health-care takeover costs, Hasan's associations, etc. Amazing."

AP's director of media relations, Paul Colford, said the story was based on input from 11 reporters, but some were "minimally involved."

"It has been widely perceived by some that AP has an 11-man squad which is trailing the governor coast to coast," Colford said. "This is categorically untrue."

"Going Rogue" was No. 1 in sales on before its Tuesday release and has stayed there.

AP wouldn't say how many reporters are typically assigned to fact-check. The agency has roughly 3,000 employees for news gathering. Palin supporters said she was being unfairly targeted for scrutiny.

Colford said AP didn't fact-check Obama's two books, for example, because "neither of those books were published when he was a major player on the scene."

His latest book was published in 2006, as he was being mentioned as a possible presidential candidate.


  1. When moronbama becomae a "major player" they didn't vet the messiah's books then either.

  2. It is hard to believe that we have so many anti-American, anti-value and mentally corrupt liberals in this country, such as this Colford character. The reason Ayers wrote in such a disjointed style was to hide lies!!! Those AP dumbies couldn't figure up from down.

  3. So what are they waiting for...fact check BHO's books now...I dare them to!
