Oh, for the love of everything ever. The Associated Press offers up yet another example of the sorry state of journalism.

Here’s the oh-so-objective paragraph in the AP’s “report” on a new voter ID law in Virginia:

Republican majorities in the Virginia House and Senate pushed the bill to passage one year after a more modest GOP-sponsored voter identification law failed to prevent President Barack Obama from winning Virginia for the second presidential election in a row and a Democratic U.S. Senate victory.

See, it’s not that the GOP wants to combat voter fraud and ensure election integrity; It’s that Obama-hating Republicans want to suppress the votes of law-abiding Democrats with “Jim Crow-era tactics.” That’s journalism?

Shamed and held accountable for partisan advocacy masquerading as objective journalism.

    I recommend citizens of color start demanding to purchase alcohol, tobacco and firearms without any ID, because to ask is racist, and must be due to Jim Crow laws. How about boarding flights?

    Could it possibly be that Obama is a lousy politician and worse first term President?

    Just thought I’d ask.

    • http://granitegrok.com/author/mike Mike Rogers

      Well, yes, but that doesn’t impact the need for voter ID.
      We need elections to be honest, and we need conservatives to make the case that their ideas will be better for the country.

        Hi, Mike.

        The last time a conservative spoke without the liberal filter twisting the conservative’s words and ideas was Rand Paul’s filibuster about the constitutionality of domestic drone use.

        And the liberal media still made the story about drones and not the Constitution.

        Voter ID is needed badly. But as long as the left has the media, the NAACP,
        CBC, Jesse and Al. The drumbeat against Voter ID is going to be loud and strong. And racial. It’s the only tool they have. Even if it is a lie and those I mentioned above know it’s a lie. If it gets votes and makes conservatives and Republicans look bad. They’ll continue to perpetuate the lie.

    I can’t get a single proggie to explain to me how voter ID is ‘bad’, yet a photo ID was REQUIRED to attend the Democratic Convention.

    LOL! Hypocrites, one and all!

      They know why it is bad, it might cut back on dem vote fraud. But getting any dem to admit to that basic truth is a different story.

  • Guest

    No, no, no… This is all a GOOD thing! The AP has just openly admitted to rampant voter fraud in Virginia.

  • puggish

    Typical leftist AP lies. Too bad all the local and state newspapers run to them for content. Local low-info’s swallow this garbage constantly.

    How is 110% voter turn out NOT voter fraud?
    How can 59 of the most contested counties no tally a single Romney vote, and not be flagged as voter fraud?
    How can a democrat poll worker vote fives times and the presstitutes just laugh it off?
    We didn’t have an election, we had a Selection.
    Banana Republics have fairer elections.
    Now how can you trust that poser in the WH? That is, when he’s not on vacation.

  • NickGranite

    I guess the obvious question for the AP reporter is how does keeping people ineligible to vote from the polls hurt Obama? Wouldn’t the logical follow-up be because Obama needs illegals and other ineligibles to vote in order to win?

  • Karl Winrich

    They say photo ID requirements disenfranchise:

    The Elderly: WRONG! Think about it, these people have had drivers licenses since the 1950’s or earlier!! They also used real credit cards (not debit) and wrote checks, photo ID’s required.

    Minorities: WRONG! The Motor Voter act allows one to register to vote at the same time as they apply for their DL, which just happens to be a photo ID. Plus some states will issue a free photo ID.

    Immigrants: SO WRONG!!! If they are legal immigrants they will have a photo on either a passport or their green cards. And unless they are naturalized citizens they aren’t even eligible to vote in the first place.

    Illegal Immigrants: WRONG! One word – Illegal. Enough said.

    Everybody Else: WHAT?!?!?!? High school students usually have a photo ID by the age of 16, before they can legally vote anyways. And they tend to keep their DL for the rest of their lives.

    The only people who photo ID requirements actually disenfranchise from voting are those who are already DEAD, and those who aren’t legal to vote anyways. And, guess what: Dead people aren’t allowed to vote either, because they are DEAD!
