The Masses on Attack: AP Gets Ratioed After Reporting Some Truth About George H.W. Bush

The Associated Press has deleted a tweet about the death of former President George H.W. Bush that generated a wave of backlash for perceived bias.

"We’ve deleted a tweet and revised a story on the death of President George H.W. Bush because the tweet and the opening of the story referenced his 1992 electoral defeat and omitted his WWII service," AP said.
The Washington Examiner explains:
The tweet was met with fierce disapproval, particularly from conservative figures, and was subsequently "ratioed," in which the number of comments vastly outnumbered retweets and "likes" — a sign of widespread negative reaction

  1. RIP, if you can, George “read my lips, no new taxes” Bush. And thank you for that media extravaganza you put on in Kuwait. Life was getting a bit boring with the Cold War closing down and all.
