AP Fabricates “Completely False Story” to Smear DeSantis, Then Deletes

Tell us you’re a propaganda arm of the Democratic party without telling us…

On Thursday, the Associated Press fabricated a story about residents on Florida’s Pine Island, who they claimed “have stayed put for days without electricity and other resources while hoping the lone bridge to the mainland is repaired” after Hurricane Ian.

The headline played into the left’s ongoing attempts to make this into Gov. Ron Desantis’ ‘Katrina’ moment.

Except, the bridge was repaired the day before.

DeSantis spox Christina Pushaw (recipient of her own backfired hit-pieces) tweeted in response; “Today, @AP tweeted out a *completely false* story about SWFL, fabricated by a “reporter” in Minneapolis who hasn’t gone near Florida since Hurricane Ian,” adding “After getting ratioed, AP deleted it. These are the self-appointed “fact checkers” who want to censor you for “disinformation””

    It isn’t that fact checking is bad. It’s that the picture of the bridge is the ultimate fact check.

    • William Shaker says:

      much of the fact checking industry is politically biased and very bad. Only an idiot would put ” fact checker” on their resume. Because it’s an evil form of censorship. History is replete with examples. The censors are NEVER the good guys.

      • Art LaPella says:

        I too deplore the censorship. But fact checking usually isn’t censorship at all, and it’s less politically biased and bad than memes like “vaccine always kills within 2 years” (it’s been almost 2 years now).

    What a blatant attempt to do a totally unwarranted hit piece on our great Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. He has done an amazing job of putting together the teams of people who were standing by waiting for the hurricane to pass and as soon as that happened those teams hit the road and they are still working around the clock to save lives and do repairs as quickly as humanly possible. In the middle of all of this, a lapdog liberal media person in Minneapolis decides to do a hit piece on our governor that was totally false. Whoever the lapdog was, he or she needs to be brought out into the public and asked to explain their actions. And of all things, the Pine Island bridge was repaired within THREE DAYS OF THE START OF CONSTRUCTION!!!
    This move by AP proves without a doubt just how much the liberal news are truly the lapdogs of the democrat party who have no shame about how they try to lie about conservatives. There is not much that could be lower than doing a false hit piece on our governor in the middle of a hurricane recovery!
    WAKE UP AMERICA AND SEE THIS FOR THE UNDERHANDED GARBAGE THAT IT IS!!!

    EVERY person in this current ILLEGITIMATE ‘Administration’ deserves nothing less than a bullet in the head. When they start going down, one by one, we’ll see how the media is going to deny it as it happens. Hopefully, they can report they’re ‘alive and well’, when everyone will be celebrating – because they’ll ALL be DEAD!
