The AP gets one right

A major Associated Press dispatch on possible veep picks which was published overnight Monday contained this paragraph mentioning Joe Lieberman:

Catch the unintended truth typo?

How about now?

According to Editor & Publisher it was "still up at such sites as the Houston Chronicle, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Cleveland's Plain Dealer and many more" as of Tuesday morning.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy!

Calling a United States Senator a "prick". You stay classy, Maria! New kind of politics, my ass.

did maria author that story???


i don't think so.

Maria said...

let's see: the AP makes a typo which is a MAJOR BLUNDER that's repeated all over the place because the story is syndicated and then it's noticed and I and a ton of other people write about the typo and you're upset with me.


Also, not sure where I said I was all about a "new kind of politics" so you'll need to point it out to me.

Turner seems to be one of our resident concern trolls.

He has a lot of moral admonishment to offer for our side, but when the lies and smears are running thick and heavy from the other side, he doesn't have too much to say.

This comment from him is a perfect example of what he does.

His sensibilities apparently are too delicate for the rough and tumble world of politics.
