The AP’s manipulation of grieving young people is an disgusting affront to journalism

Screenshot 2018-02-19 at 07.54.22.pngThe Associated Press has crafted a story, running nationally and carried in California bo the Los Angeles Daily News and other newspapers that in essence, lays the blame for the Florida school shooting squarely on the shoulders of President Trump.

That’s right. To the AP, President Trump may just as well have burst into that school armed to the teeth, and committed all that carnage.

The story gleefully focuses on students who escaped the deadly school shooting. They say President Trump’s response to the attack was “needlessly divisive.”

“You’re the president. You’re supposed to bring this nation together, not divide us,” said David Hogg, a 17-year-old student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in South Florida, speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“How dare you,” he added.

Hogg was responding to Trump’s tweet Saturday that Democrats hadn’t passed any gun control measures during the brief time they controlled Congress with a supermajority in the Senate. Trump also alluded to the FBI’s failure to act on tips that the suspect was dangerous, while bemoaning the bureau’s focus on Russia’s role in the 2016 election.

The President is right on both counts.  The AP’s manipulation of grieving young people is a disgusting affront to journalism.

  1. They keep showing this shaved headed screaming punk as if she is the voice of the fallen. When the NRA Instructor killed the church shooter with an AR-15.. they barely mentioned it. When their protected base of crazed Muslims uses cars to mow down dozens at a time,.. It’s the driver. But yet the flippin moment a crazy that the FBI had tips on from strangers and a relative, it’s the inanimate object and President Trump is to blame..
    Try blaming a culture that glorifies killing babies, but yet this shaved punk, who probably is OK with abortions is now screaming.. on CUE from her handlers to disarm the population over one crazed a-hole who could have easily been stopped if the authorities had done their jobs and not turned a blind eye.. Nice try democrap sycophants !!!
