The Associated Press’ Biased Reporting Fueled Anti-Obama Vendetta

The AP have launched a vendetta to bring down President Obama, and made their agenda crystal clear in this wildly-misleading article:

NEW YORK (AP) – Apple says it received between 4,000 and 5,000 requests from U.S. law enforcement for customer data for the six months ended in May.

The company, like some other businesses, had asked the U.S government to be able to share how many requests it received related to national security and how it handled them. Those requests were made as part of Prism, the recently revealed highly classified National Security Agency program that seizes records from Internet companies.

Only if you read to the end of the article will you discover this:

It said that the most common form of request came from police investigating robberies and other crimes, searching for missing children, trying to locate a patient with Alzheimer’s disease, or hoping to prevent a suicide.

The company also made clear how much access the government has.

“We do not provide any government agency with direct access to our servers, and any government agency requesting customer content must get a court order,” Apple said in a statement on its website.

Of course, leading with that very innocuous information wouldn’t fit the Beltway media’s Orwell fetish, which is especially strong at the AP since news emerged that the Department of Justice subpoenaed AP reporters’ phone records in investigating a leak of classified information. Here’s Michael Calderone quoting former AP reporter Ron Fournier:

Have no doubt about it. The Associated Press are now twisting stories to suit their narrative of an Out of Control Surveillance State … even when the story is really about local law enforcement trying to solve crimes, looking for missing kids, lost Alzheimers’ patients, and potential suicides.

The AP are on a vendetta, and the rest of the media will need to call it out and push back to stop it.
