In the wake of George H.W.’s death, the vast majority of Americans have come together to say that despite their possible disagreements, they acknowledge that he was a good man who loved his family and his country.
…And then there’s the AP:
Could this tweet have been any more of a sneer?
This is modern-day American “journalism,” folks. Absolutely despicable.
Let the record forever reflect that the Associated Press is not an even-handed news organization, but rather an agenda-driven press agency that would be willing to prop up Hitler and Castro than to rightfully honor the imperfect men and women who served this country with dignity.

The @AP sticking the knife in Bush’s legacy on the night he passes away.
And then they wonder why so many people don’t trust them. https://t.co/VotMQzrr76

The AP should delete this tweet and then delete its social media manager. https://t.co/sgRAFk26uJ

How low we have fallen as a nation. We see the crassness in our politics even more clearly because of how high a man like George H. W. Bush worked to help elevate us. It makes his passing even sadder.

The AP has now deleted the tweet:
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.

So gross. So, so gross.
