American war on women: Associated Press

The normalization of misogyny.

Source, Judd Legum at ThinkProgress: Associated Press casts Trump as potentially ‘history-making’ champion of women.

And gays, too.

Ah, the Associated Press! Back in the bad sexist news, and right after it was caught with its pants down by interpreting a Hillary Wikileaks leak falsely.

A couple of short paragraphs from the CNN Money piece, linked above:

Meanwhile, other news organizations pilloried the AP’s report.

The Washington Post Fact-Checker wrote that there were “many more nuanced and important details in the story that are being misrepresented — by the AP’s own promotional tweet, and by Trump.”

Vox’s Matthew Yglesias was more direct: “The AP’s big expoon Hillary meeting with Clinton Foundation donors is a mess,” his headline read.

What the hell is going on at the AP?
