Hot off the Presses!

Associated Press again makes up reports to try to push their liberal agenda. This time it was pointed at *said with accent* Cal-ee-forn-ee-a Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Arnold did an interview for a German newspaper where he said quote,
"I think that right now the Republican Party is all the way from the right to the center, and the Democratic Party is all the way from the left to the center," he said.
"And I'd like the Republican Party to cross that center line. Keep it to the right, where it is. But I mean, cross over that center line a little bit, because they would take immediately away 5 percent from the Democrats and you're home free for good."

The reporter, Marc Hujer (middle) for the Associated Press added the "left" comment, however he did say later that Arnold did not say "left". But this was done too late and the damage had already been done. News stations picked up on it and claimed that he was going to ask the Republican party to move more liberal and have a supportive stance on gay marriage and abortion rights. But have the news agencies reported on the "mistake" made by the AP? Why should they? They've made another conservative leader look bad.
