Associated Press Doesn’t Know How to Report


Follow this link to  Associated Press’s  analysis of Barack Obama’s tax plan.

In a manner that is typical with the Associated Press, they pretend to be professional reporters.  However, they defeat themselves with their own words.

The Worcester Telegram & Gazette published an AP analysis of the Obama tax plan’s effect on small business owners. The article says, “What’s very small, small, medium, and large? Obama doesn’t say.” I wonder if they asked?

If there is a piece of information that is missing for the “report” you are writing, isn’t it the duty of a professional journalist to go to the source and ask questions?  You cannot make snide implications that Obama is being vague unless you provide evidence that he refused to answer your question.

I have written to the Worcester T & G asking for clarification.
