The following is a full quotation from http.www.ap.com/foi/index.html
"The Associated Press is the bastion of the people's right to know around the world. With a long history of involvement in FOI issues and actions, AP is an industry leader in "open government issues."
The scope of AP's efforts worldwide is extraordinary. Whether reporting on Iraqi prisoner abuse or the difficulty in getting aid to tsunami victims, AP captures the consequences of government action or inaction.
At the state level, AP open government efforts are coordinated by the chief of bureau, working in conjunction with state members, FOI councils, industry associations and other interested groups.
"A fight is what this is. We do not sit in some impartial referee's box where open government is concerned. Like it or not, we're in the game for keeps, and we can either play badly or play well."
Associated Press President and CEO Tom Curley, in a 2004 speech, quoted in "Breaking News: How the Associated Press Has Covered War, Peace, and Everything Else," published in June 2007 by Princeton Architectural Press"

Tourney, Survivor June 8, 1967." Although, as for myself, I do not consider Jewish conspiracy theories and claims worthy of attention. However, the lost lives of US servicemen is very much worthy of my attention and respect.
"My fellow Americans, I sit here at 3:00 am with my heart racing and my hands shaking and I ask that you please take a moment to read my letter. I ask not that you read it for my sake, but rather for your own and for your children and grandchildren.
JUNE 8, 1967, during the Six Day War, we came as close to a nuclear war than anytime in history and it scares me to death as it should you. For the benefit of those who do not know what happened (the result of a deliberate campaign of cover-up and censorship by a Zionist-owned media in America) I will give you a ... "
