The AP: "...good poodles of fascism..."

Roger L. Simon says:

"What Stokes seems to be saying in his gnomic fashion is that because the 'Insurgents' seek to have their stories told, the Associated Press is obligated to do so. It sounds as if the 'Insurgents' were calling a press conference to express their campaign positions. But they weren't. What they were doing was brutally murdering innocent people in the street and they wanted the press there to record the event. The Associated Press, like good poodles of fascism, came along for that most necessary of tasks for terrorists in asymetrical war--publicity. "

Powerline has more.

That's why they tipped off the photographer, and that's why they dragged the two election workers from their car, so they could be shot in front of the AP's obliging camera. And the AP was happy to cooperate with the terrorists in all respects. We'd like to ask some more questions of the photographer, of course, but that's impossible since the AP won't identify him because of "safety concerns." Really? Who would endanger his safety? The terrorists? They could have shot him on Sunday if they were unhappy about having their picture taken....

That makes the admission pretty well complete, I think.
