"The problem in defense is how far you can go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from without."
~Dwight D. Eisenhower
AP is simply making a business move. Devoting 11 reporters to fact check increases the chance they will find something to report. That will then create a media frenzy, as the left jumps to attack her and the right tries to defend. In the process, AP will make a nice profit with all the attention on their story. It is the same reason that Micheal Jackson had more than 11 reporters covering his death: reporting stuff about famous people sells papers. Never attribute to partisanship what can more easily attributed to greed.
For the record, I disagree with AP's choice, they would be better served by fact-checking politicians who are writing laws that are infinitely more important than a celebrity book.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
Do you mean to tell us that you don't see the difference in the treatment here?
For the record, I voted for McCain only because the other option was totally unacceptable. Palin was the only one expressing even a small part of my beliefs on the final campaign trail. Had Americans been given equal access to information and interviews with all candidates without the typical liberal slant on every story, McCain would never have been the Republican nominee. And the world would be a better place.
