AP's Jihad against the NYPD
2:04 PM, Feb 28, 2012 • By DANIEL HALPER
The Associated Press has been attacking the New York Police Department for . . . doing its job. As Bob McManus of the New York Post writes today, "Strip away the emotive rhetoric and what’s left is a series of stories over several weeks that show pretty clearly that the NYPD works very hard to keep the city safe — operating an aggressive and imaginative program, but staying well within both the law and the bounds of post-9/11 propriety from beginning to end."
And as McManus also notes, "Of all the cheesy stunts The Associated Press has pulled in its continuing calumny of the NYPD’s anti-terrorism efforts, the agency’s trip to Columbia University this past weekend will be hard to top. Finding Columbia kids who disapprove of the NYPD in general isn’t a high-degree-of-difficulty task; ask about “spying” on Muslim students and the knees really start to jerk. . . Still, when anyone needs a barking seal, Columbia is where to go."
