How AP altered its headline to protect Obamacare

Don’t believe the press is in the tank for Obama and Obamacare? Well, check this out.

Yesterday evening, Jon Gabriel re-tweeted a link from National Review’s Charles Cooke to the Associated Press web site, which was running an article on the serious problems experienced by those using the Obamacare exchanges, which were only in their second day of operation. This is how the headline read:

You’ll note that the graphic is not from the AP web site, but from Knoxnews.com, which carried this article as an AP subscriber. I had to search Bing to find it. Why? Because someone at the Associated Press soon after changed the headline of the original article at the AP site. Here’s how it reads now:

AP Obamacare headline altered

Pretty significant, no? Nice way to put a much more positive spin on this anti-constitutional monstrosity.

I realize this happens frequently, but the dishonesty is still breathtaking.

And this is why much of the MSM cannot be trusted: they are not honest brokers of information, but a propaganda and marketing arm of the Obama White House, the Democratic Party, and the Left.

Walter Duranty would be so proud.

Found a version of the original AP article online. Here’s how the headline looked when Cooke shared it:

  1. My local paper (San Angelo, TX) still has the original version of the article online: http://www.gosanangelo.com/news/2013/oct/02/health_overhaul/

  2. […] that’s got to be true then since these shills all agree on it. Then you get revelations like this one, which shows the blatant bias they pretend doesn’t […]

  3. Mr. Orwell, you’re wanted on lines 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, & 7.

  4. […] Did he really mean it?  God help his scrawny ass when he gets to knocking on those pearly gates.  Of course, the incestuous AP alters the truth just a tad. […]

    This is not BIAS.

    This is DISHONESTY.

    I really do wish that people would learn to call it what it is, yet time and time again I read posts, comments, and outright articles complaining about media bias.

    Bias is the difference between calling a glass half-full or half-empty.

    What the Marxist Socialist Media (MSM) does is LIE.

    Of course there’s demand- Big Brother has required people to get insurance- and forced many off their existing insurance- at threat of fine (sorry, “tax”), which of course if you don’t pay you risk further fine and/or imprisonment. They act like it means something good. Idiots.

    AP remains at work? I thought that the government was closed.

  9. […] How AP altered its headline to protect Obamacare […]

  10. Great Post, though i have a question. What are the repercussions for failing to purchase health insurance and refusing to pay the “fine,” “tax,” “penalty” or whatever it’s being called now?
