ANOTHER Tainted AP story (IMHO) to Cover-Up more FL Corruption!
This might be the NEW "Jeff Gannon"
Yesterday, I posted an article by Wayne Madsen (On-line Journal, etc.) <http://www.waynemadsenreport.com />
DISINFO ALERT: Why the AP Cannot be Trusted to Accurately Report The News! (It at this link <http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph... > )

Today I found this story from the AP from a so-called "AP writer RON WORD" The story, which I posted at this link: <http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph... >
at first seemed intriguing, but now that I've looked into it more, is really starting to STINK of a RW Bias and could be a cover story to hide some major Corruption down in Florida.


That can be discussed at the link above.

This post is about:

The AP putting out, what I think, are "RW Money" Tainted News stories.


I encourage you to do the things I'm describing here, so you can see what I'm talking about.


First, I Googled the so-called, Associated Press Writer "RON WORD" (Which also brings up some interesting links, but stay with me here)

Which brings up this:

Fla. Official Who Killed Self Stole Money
Washington Post, DC - 5 hours ago (It's probably not 5 hours anymore, but that's not the point)
By RON WORD. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A "highly trusted" county official stole more than $1 million from the government before she killed ...
Fla. Official Who Killed Self Stole Money Wired News
all 49 related


Now if you click on all 49 related That gives you this:

Results 1 - 12 of 12 related articles., (today's article) "Fla. Official Who Killed Self Stole Money"


Now go to the bottom of this page where it says this:

In order to show you the most relevant results, we have omitted some entries very similar to the 12 already displayed.
If you like, you can repeat the search with the omitted results included.
Click on the link (which is the blue part here, but it's a link on Google)

Now you should have about 49 similar stories by this "RON WORD" 32 to 35 are Identical. But here's the thing, notice how the AP has Blasted this Tainted identical article to 32 different Newspapers around the county (and a few in other countries too) DIRECTLY onto their Local Websites.

Their should be a few that were sent out an hour later too, and a few that are edited to add a few extra facts, for web sites like CourtTV, but most are Identical. They also are very sensational, but also contain very little actual information.

Is This "Normal?" Or, Is this what * and V.P. Dick are talking about when they talk about "Bypassing the Liberal Media Filter???"

AND I really doubt if "RON WORD" is a real Person.

Here' my example below, this what I'm talking about:

2. Sigh....
First off Madsen is as nutty a fruitcake. AP did mention the protests in other articles. He serves more bullshit to a willing audience than I have ever seen. Even when discredited he gives enough morsels of what people want to hear that he still gets paid attention to. Read his latest on the London bombings, confirmation of MIHOP, the Israeli prior notification etc.

Second, AP acts as a newswire for newspapers, many of them depending on AP for most of their content. So it would not be surprising that they all have the same story.

Third, when doing results google attempts to eliminate some but not all duplicates.

One thing I do need cleared up...why is this article "tainted"?

Also if Ron Word isn't a real person, he must be deep cover as I found articles atrributed to him since at least 1998.

3. Well my main question was, Is it normal for the AP to Drop these...
stories Directly onto the Web pages of of all these Newspapers and T.V. Stations? Doesn't that bypass the Local News Editor?

News editors are important to keep RW Propaganda and stories by guys like "Jeff Gannon" off their "News" Web pages.

And the Tainted part is that the article I quoted makes a LOT of very serious allegations about this Dead Woman (Placing the blame on her) without supplying any facts or evidence to back up these serous charges, there by diverting the blame away from the corrupt government officials, who could possibly be the REAL criminal.

Their are almost NO Facts or even basic information in this or the similar articles by this "RON WORD." The article is all finger pointing and allegations.

I also find it odd, that this guy's name is attached almost exclusively to RW Hype and RW Agenda subjects, like Terry Shivo. I went though some of them, but I've yet to find a direct e-mail address to this guy "Ron Word."

It's one of those problems that looks small, but has a very corrosive effect on the integrity of Good, caring journalists.

4. Well he seems to write for the Tampa Tribune...
...so his connection to Florida based stories makes sense(I also found an article about the 200 election)

I am guessing but I suppose two things. AP does indeed just blast stories out. And the newspapaers listed may not have an editor for this blast, the AP story may just become part of their breaking news section. Whether it eventually makes into the actual pages of the paper is something I have no idea about.

At the same time this is the AP not Talon News.

5. Yes that's true, it's not Talon News, but it's not much better than that

Check this out, I just got this today. I'm mainly looking at this AP graphic, as compared to the graphic from Reuters. It's from this article:

June hiring up, unemployment rate falls


Jul 8, 12:13 PM EDT



Look pretty goo huh? Well look at the same story from Reuters, who made the effort not to confuse or give it a RW spin:

Job growth tepid, jobless rate drops


Fri Jul 8, 2005 9:39 AM ET

Sorry, I couldn't get the Graphic to show up here, so you need to Click here :hi:

If you don't find the AP graphic confusing or even deceptive, I can explain it to you, because I did, until I saw the Reuters Graphic.
