AP Goes to Bat to Protect Obama Admin in Oil Spill Crisis

Talk about burying the lede; the Associated Press has raised that practice to a high artform.

Here's the Drudge Report headline blaring the startling news that the Deepwater Horizon, the oil rig that exploded April 20, was awarded for safety last year by the federal Mineral Management Service.

And here's the Associated Press excerpt to which the headline refers:
In fact, last year MMS awarded the rig an award for its safety history.
It is the very last sentence in the AP story.

Apparently the AP is afraid that, if they don't play ball with the Obama administration, they'll get the bat shoved up their ass. Or else they just think the One is a rock star and get tingles up their legs when He speaks.
