How AP altered its headline to protect Obamacare

Don’t believe the press is in the tank for Obama and Obamacare? Well, check this out.

Yesterday evening, Jon Gabriel re-tweeted a link from National Review’s Charles Cooke to the Associated Press web site, which was running an article on the serious problems experienced by those using the Obamacare exchanges, which were only in their second day of operation. This is how the headline read:

You’ll note that the graphic is not from the AP web site, but from, which carried this article as an AP subscriber. I had to search Bing to find it. Why? Because someone at the Associated Press soon after changed the headline of the original article at the AP site. Here’s how it reads now:

Pretty significant, no? Nice way to put a much more positive spin on this anti-constitutional monstrosity.

I realize this happens frequently, but the dishonesty is still breathtaking.

And this is why much of the MSM cannot be trusted: they are not honest brokers of information, but a propaganda and marketing arm of the Obama White House, the Democratic Party, and the Left.

Walter Duranty would be so proud.

Found a version of the original AP article online. Here’s how the headline looked when Cooke shared it:

  2. AP = American Pravda

    I thought AP meant the Administration’s Press. I think it is hilarious that the 1-800 phone number for signing up for Obamacare when converted to the alphabet is “F**KYO”. It is so fitting since that is exactly what Obamacare does to middle-class Americans.

  4. I’m reminded of a story in Reader’s Digest many years ago during the Cold War: The Russians challenged the US Embassy to a drag race featuring some Russian Vehicle, a Ziv, I believe, versus a US Made Ford (V-8 interceptor package).

    The Ford won hands down.

    The Russian Press, Pravda, or was it NY Times or WaPo reported the results as follows” The Superior Russian motor car finished Second, while the american motor car finished next to last.

    Seems the the Obama Administration and their stranglehold on tthe MSM isn’t too far behind Lenin’s boys. Well there’s not much difference between Leni, Marx, and Alinsky.
