The Associated Press goes out of its way to hide the fact that S.C. congressman James Clyburn is a Democrat. They report on the Myrtle Beach Sun News‘ story showing that Clyburn has used earmarks for years to benefit his family and friends.
The AP tells its readers that “Clyburn is the House majority whip,” giving them cover when they receive criticism for hiding the congressman’s Democrat label. But how many of your average readers know a majority whip from Cool Whip?
