The Associated Press

The Associated with Liberals Press is so predictable.
Below is a full story from AP via Yahoo! News. The story is about a Democratic Governor abruptly resigning following sexual harrassment allegations from a former aide.
Notice absolutely no mention of the sexual scandal. Simply "He's made up his mind" to resign. That's all folks. Thanks for stopping by. Nothing to see here. Oh- near the end AP uses this tagline-- "raising taxes on millionaires, casinos and cigarettes" as a substitute for the D-word and to remind you of those excellent liberal virtues. Ok-- move along. No story here. Please move along.
Imagine if this were a Republican governor. Stop the presses. Front page national news. Republican in the headline. Republican in the first sentence. A tie in to Bush here and there.
Digging around the web you get the full story:
Here's the AP liberal friendly version:
N.J. Governor to Resign, Source Says

17 minutes ago

By JOHN P. McALPIN, Associated Press Writer

TRENTON, N.J. - Gov. James E. McGreevey will announce his resignation Thursday, a longtime friend and political adviser has told The Associated Press.


The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, was one of several advisers and staff members who met with McGreevey throughout the afternoon to discuss his political future.

"He's made up his mind," the source said, just before the governor was to attend an afternoon news conference.

McGreevey, the state's 51st governor, took office 2 1/2 years ago, and despite inheriting a $5 billion budget deficit, he steadfastly refused to boost income taxes for most New Jerseyans, instead raising taxes on millionaires, casinos and cigarettes.

But he has been dogged by several scandals involving fund-raising.
