Papers Drop Associated Press

Breitbart Big Journalism, by Warner Todd Huston

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/26/2012 8:54:37 AM

The Chicago Tribune has announced that starting in January, the Chicago-based paper and several other Tribune-owned papers will be dropping the Associated Press as its chief wire service. Along with the Chicago paper, six other Tribune-owned papers will also be dropping the AP. Those papers are the Baltimore Sun; the Orlando Sentinel; the South Florida Sun-Sentinel; the Hartford Courant; the Morning Call of Allentown, Pennsylvania; and the Daily Press of Newport News, Virginia. Reports from Tribune insiders were confirmed Sunday by Paul Colford, director of media relations for AP.

No problem. I usually look to see if it´s an AP story. If it is I just skip it as liberal blather.

The Chicago Tribune is already full of reports of local gang shootings. There´s no room for AP stories.

Good to see. Since I got rid of another worthless lib newspaper, the Denver Post, a long time ago, haven´t had the problem of skipping past the ars-press stories. While the Trib did the right thing, newspapers definitely disappearing slow but sure.

These rags are probably upset that AP actually ran a conservative columnist or a story favorable to anyone other than their lord and savior, barack hussein obama, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm.

They can get all the leftist slant they need from in house or maybe sign up for Al Jazerra.

Unfortunately, most small town newspapers use the Associated Press as their main source of news reports. When I recently cancelled my local rag, the lady asked me why I was doing so. When I explained I was tired of so much leftist slanting of what´s going on in the world, she replied that she got quite as many complaints that the paper was too conservative. I was too polite to tell her I thought she was lying, but, on reflection, given the voting results of November 6, maybe she was being honest.

I stopped watching network news in 1992 after they elected Bill Clinton.I dropped my local newspaper after the 2008 election for the same reasons stated above. They could not have cared less. They were recently sold off.

I think the news media may be committing suicide faster than the rest of the country.

Does columnist John Kass, the only column worth reading in the Trib, get the extra money the Trib charges with "Digital Plus" just to read his columns? I guess it is a "pay-to-play" Chicago solution to a problem. Newspapers and the AP with their regurgitations of liberal agenda crap for Obama worshipers have done themselves in by not reporting actual news and shining a light in the dark places of the political world? Who cares if Obama is playing golf? That is not news!

Hard to believe the Chicago Trib wouldn´t be willing to pay the extra $5 million for the AP´s virulently leftist output. But then, Reuters is nearly as hardcore Stalinist in its viewpoint, so I suppose the Trib sees it as no great loss.

The bitter clingers are letting go of orgs like AP but it´s too late. Not only is AP heading for the dust bin but so is the Trib and all the others.

I put my last copy of the Dallas Morning Lies Distortions and Half-Truths in the dust bin in 1993. Many have followed suit. Today, the only people buying that rag are people who want to have something to put in their recycle bin.

The pendulum swings.

This Babylon among the MSM may be the actual plan:

1. MSM reduced to irrelevence [by their own perfidy];

2. A vacuum occurs in national, credible news information;

3. The ZeroNews Foundation steps up to become the defacto information source, and eventually, the only one.

The First Ammendment is thus gently dispatched.

You have to acknowledge the problem the Ass. Press finds itself with. The left side of the "Journalism" ship, AKA Titanic is crowded far beyond capacity causing the ship to circle left continuously, hitting one iceberg after another. With everyone singing the same song and peddling the same distortions and lies it is difficult to stand out from the herd.

When Ass. Press disappears no one will even miss them. One less voice in the choir.

Sensible people learned long ago that nothing reported by the Associated Press can be trusted.

Of course, the same could be said of Reuters, or NBC "News", or ABC, CBS, CNN, PMSNBC, NPR, PBS, the New York Slimes, the WhiteWash Post, etc., etc., etc.

With Hillary Clinton already locking up massive amounts of cash for a presumptive 2016 presidential run, members of the hard left may be looking for an alternative. Many Democrats remain uninspired by Clinton’s progressive record – her most leftist period came during her early days as First Lady, and resulted in part in a 1994 Republican Congressional landslide – and have urged other candidates to jump into the race to provide a boost for a further-left agenda. Polls show Clinton defeating all comers in potential primary matchups. But polls also show that her appeal stems largely from her status as

XI’AN, China — Michelle Obama stopped down for five hours for a purely touristic visit, giving her and her family a view of China’s ancient history. The city is the terminus of the legendary Silk Road, a series of trade routes that linked the East and West throughout history, and is also home to the Terra Cotta Army. The massive clay sculptures were discovered in the spring of 1974 in the eastern suburbs of the city by farmers digging a well near the grave of China’s first emperor, Qinshihuang.

FORT WORTH, TEXAS—Last week conservative candidate Konni Burton kicked off her run-off campaign to clinch the Republican nomination for Senate District 10. It was standing-room-only at Stockyard Station´s Stampede Room, with friends, family, the grassroots, and Senator Ted Cruz by her side. Breitbart Texas previously reported that Burton is the favored conservative in the Senate District that includes Fort Worth, Arlington, Mansfield, Colleyville and other areas of south and northeast Tarrant County. Tarrant County is one of the few urban conservative strongholds in the nation and it is the district currently represented by liberal state senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth).

The U.S. and its allies announced Monday that they would, for now, exclude Russia from the G8 and boycott a planned summit in Sochi in retaliation over its Crimea takeover -- though Russia´s government shrugged off the latest efforts to isolate the country.

Karzai´s office released a statement over the weekend saying Afghanistan "respects the free will of the people of Crimea to decide about their own future."

A list of those reported missing following a landslide in rural Washington state includes 108 names, emergency officials said Monday. But that doesn´t mean all of them were killed in Saturday´s disaster north of Seattle, Snohomish County Emergency Management Director John Pennington said. The official death toll remains at eight with seven others hurt, he said. Until Monday, the number of people unaccounted for was reported to be 18. The landslide covered about a square mile and was caused by groundwater saturation tied to heavy rain in the area over the past month. It affected the towns of Oso, a remote

Some of the GIFs don’t seem terribly related to the points the White House is trying to make. Indeed, they seem to be near-desperate grabs for attention as the

As Democrats around the country continue to tout their "fix it, don´t end it" mentality about how to deal with the ongoing disaster of Obamacare, they seem to be forgetting who´s paying for the promotion of President Obama´s signature achievement: taxpayers.

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends.

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.
