Mainstream Media Begins Lying to Elect Kerry

President Bush was at a rally in Wisconsin when news arrived about former president Clinton's hospitalization. Here's how that was reported by the Associated Press:

President Bush (news - web sites) on Friday wished Bill Clinton (news - web sites) "best wishes for a swift and speedy recovery."

"He's is in our thoughts and prayers, Bush said at a campaign rally.

Bush's audience of thousands in West Allis, Wis., booed. Bush did nothing to stop them.

In fact, however, the crowd had responded with respectful applause. The whole story is here (and many other places around the blogosphere). How could this blatant lie have occurred? Apparently, according to one supposedly inside report, the writer was an AP reporter named Scott Lindlaw who has publicly stated that his "mission" is to get Bush. Another writeup about this can be found here.

Even the most fanatical Bush-hater should agree that it is not the job of AP reporters to get Bush or any other politician. Their job is to report the facts. If their religious convictions get in the way they should step aside for someone rational.
