Wednesday's Example of Media Bias   —   Posted on February 22, 2012

From a post by’s editor James Taranto (original post date 2/21/12):

Wow, the Associated Press has outdone itself. Check out the latest “fact check” by Calvin Woodward and Tom Krisher:

REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE NEWT GINGRICH WROTE: “Having become deeply involved in GM’s operation, the federal government has a vested interest in the company’s success. So what is stopping it from requiring all Americans–under threat of penalty–to buy a GM car?”–from his book “A Nation Like No Other,” published last summer.

THE FACTS: This is called Newt being Newt.

There was a time when one could describe the AP’s work as “news being news.”
