From “Chicks On The Right”

The AP has standards. Well, they CLAIM to have them, anyway. Which is laughable. When it comes to free speech, they might as well get in line with the New York Times. People with brains know exactly what they represent.
You see, the AP didn’t publish the Charlie Hebdo Muhammad cartoons because, and this is a direct quote as told to the Daily Beast, “It’s been our policy for years that we refrain from moving deliberately provocative images.”
Mmmm hmmm. They refrain from provocative images. Riiiiiiiiiight.
You know what’s NOT provocative for the AP?
The Virgin Mary covered in elephant feces (until it was taken down because people were outraged, I suppose?). And it was totally OK to sell an image of a Christian Crucifix sitting in a jar of urine called “Piss Christ.” Yep. The Washington Examiner did a piece about “Piss Christ” and how the AP sucks monkeyballs (my words, not theirs, obviously) in their differentiation between what the AP considers provocative or not. Basically, if it’s Christian, well, just defecate and pee on it. Duh. But every other religion? TOTALLY PROVOCATIVE, y’all.
Because nowadays…Christians don’t matter, right?
The AP – like most liberal media outlets who claim to be “journalists” these days – is a JOKE.
But you just keep telling people you have standards, AP. Bless your hearts.
