PHOENIX, AZ –-(Ammoland.com)- In a move that no longer surprises anyone, but which the casual observer (you) no longer sees, the Associated Press abandons accuracy for reasons which remain unclear.
The lamestream media told you: “Looking to renew his campaign, GOP candidate Mitt Romney boards his campaign plane in San Diego to Saturday”
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Read the caption again — It does not describe the photo.
With total disregard for their readers or for journalistic integrity, the AP, similar to their colleagues in other forms of “news” media, will tell you one thing while showing you something completely unrelated, and the sheeple simply soak it up.
An accurate caption for the photo above would have to abandon the first clause (“Looking to renew his campaign”), because it has no connection to the photo whatsoever. It is actually a backhanded slap and editorial judgment, suggesting something is wrong and this man’s campaign is hurting, giving advantage to the man he is challenging. The remaining portion, if accuracy were any concern, would have to read, “GOP presidential candidate Romney handles his coat by the door of a vehicle,” showing how vapid a picture the vaunted AP chose to use in showing a man running for the most powerful office on the planet (we do own the most H-Bombs).
He is not shown boarding a plane. He is not boarding anything. It is not even clear from the photo that he is at an airport, or that it is Saturday, or that he is in San Diego, we just have to, hmm, take AP’s word for it, whatever that’s worth.
Using this photo caption as a guide, it isn’t worth much. No correction is expected. The AP has become a national disgrace.
