The AP has poor quality control, and was taken over by progressive Marxists in the 1980's. They are semi-jokingly called the Administrations Press (when a far lefty is in office), or the Apoplectic Press when any moderate or conservative is.

In truth, there are a lot of stories syndicated through the AP, and only a significant percentage are sloppy, erroneous, misleading or far left. But it's virtually unheard of that they will ever be sloppy, erroneous, misleading in the moderate or right leaning direction.

Examples[edit | edit source]

Here's a few examples of the FakeNews reports: AP • [11 items]

  • 2000 Mules - Documentary on the criminal voter fraud and ballot stuffing during the 2020 Presidential Election. TrueTheVote used Cellphone tracking data to show 2000 people visited 10 different polling places and 5 different DNC fronts, in the same night. (While not having a pattern of going to those places before or after the election). Ballot stuffing is illegal.
  • 2016.12.03 Whites assault Muslim in NYC - Poor 18yo Baruch College Student Yasmin Seweid, 3 white Trump supporters screamed "terrorist go home!" and tore her Hijab off, while onlookers ignored it... according to all the news outlets. Then it comes out she made the whole thing up, and virtually none corrected or retracted the story, or reported the story of the hundreds of FakeHate crimes that happened.
  • 2017 Republicans funded the Dossier - FakeNews repeated leftist agitprop that the Republicans funded the PeePee Dossier, thus it must be true. It was Hillary all along. Yet the media kept repeating the lie, or slow-rolling or burying the corrections. No social media punished anyone for repeating the disinformation that it was Republican-funded.
  • 2019.03.22 Mueller Report - The Mueller Report showed that there was no hint at collusion by Trump or his team, it was a Hillary funded hoax, that was used to obstruct Trump and undermine our Democracy, start illegal investigations and wiretapping, distract from helping America and our interests, and keep the media occupied repeating criminal disinformation.
  • 2020.08.13 UAE and Israel - AP completely discredits itself by calling the groundbreaking Abraham Accords "a rare diplomatic win". If a Democrat Administration had brokered a massive diplomatic coup that ended the gulf Arab blockade against Israel, they'd being trumpeting this historical event. But they're trying to downplay the historic event, because it was done by Donald Trump Administration.
  • AP on Tara Reade - AP buried that they failed to report on their interviews with Reade in 2019, when she first made public her Biden accusations. They claim that they were "unable to corroborate her allegations", which has never been a pre-requisite for Kavanaugh or Trump accusers. The double standard destroys Journalistic credibility.
  • Chappaquiddick - Chappaquiddick: where Ted Kennedy did an amphibious assault in the "War on Women", and the Democrats to this day, will make excuses for it. The FakeNews NYT and AP will still whitewash the story for the Democrats and pretend it was a accident instead of a conspiracy and a coverup of manslaughter at best.
  • FakeNews about Cagegate - This FakeNews fiasco was the fallacy that Trump's new immigration policy was breaking up families and putting kids in cages. The omitted reality was criminals (border jumpers) have always had the kids separated from the adults, as you aren't sure who are parents, and detaining both in the same place risks harm to children. The media even used faked propaganda images from Obama era to sell it.
  • Global Massacres/Christchurch Shooting - 🇳🇿 A Green Nationalist (eco-Fascist), who hates Capitalism, Conservatism, and is Chinese Communist sympathizer. He doesn't like Trump, shot "muslim invaders" because immigrants were over-populating the planet and causing Global Warming, and used a gun instead of bombs, because he felt the left-wing gun-controllers would be his tools and magnify his message, and start a civil war trying to disarm honest citizens. The left ignores that, and spins it as he is a right-winger., Left wing eco-nationalist shot-up mosques because immigrants were over-populating the planet and causing Global Warming.
  • MAVNI Military Recruits - The AP headline, "US Army quietly discharging immigrant recruits" was a poorly written article about how immigrant enlisted had been let go. Orangeman was persecuting minorities in the military. Of course the truth is quite different, Trump reversed the Obama era program, and the media was spreading the Big Lie.
  • Nooses in Mississippi were Democrats - There was an uproar (AP and twitter) about a warning from white supremacist leaving 7 nooses... 12 hours later it came out Democrats were warning against electing Mississippi Republican Senate candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith (in a run-off election) by leaving those nooses around.

Conclusion[edit | edit source]

Of course it's not that the AP is always wrong, but they're (virtually) always wrong in the same direction: against the Republicans and for the Democrats. Whether that is incompetence or malice is hard to say, probably a bit of both. The AP is basically just an aggregator that collects stories from participants and resells them to others for a cut. Since the majority of their sources are biased left, the majority of their product biases left as well. This may not completely be their fault, but it is completely their responsibility to correct -- and their reputation is deserved because of that skew.
