Political Forecast: 2008: AP publishes hack piece on Obama
Excerpted from this post at Political Forecast
I'm not sure what the hell the Associated Press is doing publishing this story, but it clearly reads as if someone took an RNC talking points sheet and turned it into something supposed to look like a news story. Clearly, since John Solomon works at the Washington Post, they had to find some other hack to write their piece. The problem with the piece is that it was clearly written and researched, almost like an opposition research piece, then asked opponents and supporters for comment. He then took an eight year state senate record and highlighted controversies that would make him appear "liberal" and would cause controversy. This isn't journalism, but a hack piece meant to attack Obama.
