Is this a dupe? Did I miss this? This is freaking bizarre!

The entire text, simply because it is so short:

AP Kills Limbaugh Painkillers Story

The Associated Press
Saturday, January 3, 2004; 5:06 PM

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Please kill the story Limbaugh-Painkillers, V9991. Rush Limbaugh has not been charged with doctor shopping.

A kill is mandatory.

Make certain the story is not used.

On further reading, this is just a bizarre bit of the WaPo printing verbatim an AP directive. Apparently, an AP story went out that Rush had been charged, rather than was being investigated.

But still, this is just weird.
