The Associated Press Plays the Race Card

Radical Assumptions

The Associated Press posted an analysis piece Sunday about Sarah Palin’s criticism of Barack Obama’s connections with 1960s radical William Ayers. Its conclusion? The AP called Palin’s comments “unsubstantiated” and wrote they “carried a racially-tinged subtext that John McCain himself may come to regret.”

But the AP failed to substantiate its own claim and explain how Obama’s relationship with Ayers — who is white — carries any racial subtext. What Palin did say is “our opponent… is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect, imperfect enough that he’s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country.”
