Gotta love how the AP does their best to whitewash and even rewrite history for certain people.
If only Ted Kennedy’s stinkin’ car had behaved itself that night …
50 years ago today, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy left a party on Chappaquiddick Island near Martha's Vineyard with Mary Jo Kopechne, 28; some time later, Kennedy's car went off a bridge into the water. Kennedy was able to escape, but Kopechne drowned. pic.twitter.com/X7jCFJcyJw

Kennedy was able to escape, but Kopechne was not.
Erielle Davidson rewrote their tweet:
Kennedy drove home drunk from a party, crashed a car, and left his friend Mary Jo to drown, only calling the cops the next morning. By then, Mary Jo had died. https://t.co/S5r8eQZGls

And that’s what REALLY happened.
Gosh, that doesn’t sound quite as innocent and traumatic for ol’ Ted now does it? In fact, it makes Ted sound like a serious low-life piece of garbage filth. But he’s a Democrat sooo …
Shameful whitewashing of history. Should have been, "Kennedy left the scene, didn't report the accident, left her to die, fabricated a story, and is still considered a Democrat hero"

You make reporting seem so much easier and clearer.

That’s what happens when you stick to reporting the facts instead of trying to push a narrative.
Thanks for the correction. 👍🏻
