Earlier today, I posted how, at a stump speech today, President Bush reported to a gathered crowd the news of President Clinton's medical emergency. You could hear a gasp in the crowd and then Bush said Clinton was in his thoughts and prayers. <br><br>Today, the Associated Press posted, in a breathless example of media bias, a story which completely distorted the truth:<br><br><blockquote>WEST ALLIS, Wis. - 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. Bush offered his wishes while campaigning one day after accepting the presidential nomination at the Republican National Convention in New York. Clinton was hospitalized in New York after complaining of mild chest pain and shortness of breath. Bush recently praised Clinton when the former president went to the White House for the unveiling of his official portrait. He lauded Clinton for his knowledge, compassion and "the forward-looking spirit that Americans like in a president."</blockquote><br><br>Here's the link to their original story: http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20040903/ap_on_el_pr/bush_clinton_1:<br><br>As you can see, the story was yanked. It was replaced with a revision, which is the same as the original, sans the lie about the crowd booing. <br><br> http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20040903/ap_on_el_pr/bush_clinton_2<br><br>This is the most astonishing case of media bias I have ever seen. For the record, here is the audio from the rally when Bush announced Clinton's medical news:<br><br><embed src="http://homepage.mac.com/barnett112/.Music/bush.mp3" width=320 height=25 controller="true" autoplay="false" type="video/quicktime"><br><br>Armed with the facts, would you like to see how AP's media bias lie has spread throughout different outlets across the country?<br><br>Here<br>Here<br>Here<br>Here<br>Here<br>Here<br>Here<br>Here<br>Here<br>Here<br>Here<br>Here<br><br>These go on and on and on, and do you think any of these outlets will offer a retraction? <br><br>Unbelievable. <br><br>****************<br><br>[color:blue]VOTE</font color=blue>[color:red] for President George W.
