Another Associated Press Distortion

The above headline of this morning clearly shows AP's bias towards the political left. First and foremost, the Republicans are the minority party in the Senate. If the Obama jobs bill goes down in defeat, it will be a direct result of 4 or more Democrats going against Obama and not voting for it. Obviously, the AP wants the American public to associate the Republican party with not wanting to create jobs.

Lastly, I would have thought that, in this era of the post-Gabrielle Giffords shooting, a toxic word like "kill" would be excluded from any political discourse. Apparently, AP didn't get the memo. Then too, you've got to wonder if there isn't some kind of subliminal message being built into this headline. To see what I mean, just drop the last two words off of that title.
