MSM Lie #43 of 2005 - AP lies in support of Cindy Sheehan

On August 24th, Associated Press misrepresented the Cindy Sheehan story, falsely claiming that Cindy Sheehan became anti-war only after her son was killed and only after reports of faulty pre-war intelligence. In fact, Sheehan was anti-war before her son reenlisted.

AP also added the line that Casey was misled by a recruiter before reenlisting. This line was quietly dropped from subsequent versions of the story.

This behavior is not surprising from an organization that helped terrorists win a Pulitzer Prize.

H/T Powerline.
