Associated Press changes story implying heartless Congress is under Jewish control

The Associated Press may be one of the most widely known news outlets in the world, but make no mistake, it has learned to show its bias just like the rest of mainstream media.  Although they’ve worked hard to maintain a reputation as a bipartisan news source, a recent tweet regarding the conflict between Israel and Hamas shows they are taking a clear side.

The social media fall out was so bad that the AP quickly changed it, adding this tweet:

The online community is also taking sides — against the Associated Press — for falling from grace again for the second time in two weeks. The last incident being a poor choice of words in a tweet about the transfer of deceased bodies from the ill-fated Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.

This week’s biased blunder of a post came from the opening paragraph of AP author Bradley Klapper‘s article titled, “With Israel at war, US lawmakers give full support.”

Klapper wrote:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Members of Congress are falling over one another to show their support for Israel.

While much of the rest of the world watches the Gaza war in horror and scrambles for a cease-fire, U.S. lawmakers are pressing the Obama administration to take no action that puts pressure on Israel to halt its military operations.


The backlash from the isolated tweet, spurred the news organization to sneak a change to the original article just five hours after it was originally published.  The editorialized snippet now reads:

WASHINGTON (AP) — As the war in Gaza escalates, U.S. lawmakers are pressing the Obama administration to take no action that puts pressure on Israel to halt its military campaign against Hamas.

Many even have criticized the administration’s effort to stop violence that has killed more than 1,100 Palestinians, mostly civilians, and more than 40 Israeli soldiers and three civilians this month.

The Associated Press tweet has not been deleted and is still getting a lot of attention, even if they did alter the article to better accommodate their readership.
