Nominee for the 2012 False Equivalency in Media Award.
For me, that just might be Nancy Benac of the Associated Press for this entry

Early political spats suggest nothing off-limits

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The early border skirmishes of Campaign 2012 are reviving questions about one candidate's former pastor and shining a spotlight on the other's high school hijinks. Can a fresh round of questions about President Barack Obama's birth certificate be far behind?

Let me get this straight: an undenied story about something that Mitt Romney actually did himself (well, with his fellow bullies--they tend to travel in packs) compared with pretending that every word of Wright's sermons came straight out of Obama's own mouth, mind or heart and also with the insane and totally refuted birther lie?

And a JOURNALIST lumped those three together?

This is slime, even for AP.
