Agency claimed ‘violence’ in Target controversy
The Associated Press, which has moved aggressively away from news reporting and into issue advocacy in recent years, has been caught surreptitiously changing facts in one of its reports.
It was caught by Just the News, which documented that the organization “removed uncredited claims … that Target yanked or relocated LGBTQ merchandise featured prominently in Pride Month displays in response to ‘threats to workers’ and ‘violent confrontations’ between customers and employees.”
It also did that “without telling readers.”
