The Associated Press…

January 6, 2011

The Associated Press???  The largest “news” distributer for the world.  The world needs better.  Today is January 6, 2011.  Yesterday the new House of Representative members were sworn into office, and Nancy Pelosi handed the Speaker gavel to John Boehner.  So today will be the first full day of their work. 

In, Colorado it is 7:00 in the morning, that would make it 9:00 a.m. in Washington D.C.  IF, the federal workday starts at 7:00 a.m. (which I doubt), that would mean that the new Congress has been at work for 2 hours. 

This is the first article that I read this morning.  The headline reads:

PROMISES, PROMISES: GOP drops some out of the gate

With the by line:

By ANDREW TAYLOR and CALVIN WOODWARD, Associated Press 2 hrs 46 mins ago

2 hrs 46 mins ago?  Seriously??  And Andrew Taylor and Calvin Woodward were paid for this “news”??  The new congress has not even had 1 day to do anything, besides get sworn in, and fulfill some ceremonies and these hacks write that they have already “broken promises”!!  Seriously??  Please do a search over the last 4 years of a Democratically controlled Congress and see how many articles these yahoo’s wrote about the Democrats broken promises.  If you do not have the time, I will let you guess, and I bet you will be correct.  Given the facts of the situation, I would give this article an F in freshman journalism.  They are supposed “professionals”?

I can not believe that the Associated Press thinks that this is a worthy “news” article!  Let me know what you think.
