Trump Budget Edition
Over the years, we’ve cataloged numerous instances of bias-driven reporting from just about every major news outlet our country has to offer.
The AP is not immune. More concerning about creeping bias in AP reporting is that most major publications, channels, and stations in the U.S. have subscriptions to the Associated Press wire stories.

Bias has been creeping into AP wire stories for quite some time now, though recently it’s significantly more blatant.
Seeing as the AP is no longer interested in simply reporting the news, can we stop pretending they’re unbiased?
