AP Fact Checkers 

Late to the party as usual, I saw the story some days ago that the Associated Press tasked 11, yes, 11 reporters to comb Sarah Palin's book, Going Rogue for factual errors.

The AP people came up with 12 "errors' as reported in the linked story. And as I read them, some of the supposed "gotchas" that the crack AP reporting team came up with aren't really "gotchas" at all. The ones about her hotel stays, Obama saying his climate change plan will cause electricity costs to skyrocket and the Vogue magazine interview seem to be particularly non-gotcha. Compared to the headline, the story is a yawner. I'm chalking it up to one more example of the in-the-tank-for-Obama media attacking Gov. Palin at any opportunity, even if they have to make up stuff to do it.

If this woman is so inconsequential, inept, stupid, annoying, simple, etc., etc. as they say, why is the left spending so much time and energy trying to tear her down?

I wonder how many reporters the AP assigned to fact check Obama's Dreams of My Father?
