The Associated Press is one of the most respected and widespread news organizations in the world, or something, right? According to Wikipedia, “the Associated Press operates 243 news bureaus, and it serves at least 120 countries.” OK! That is a lot of news bureaus/countries! They might not always be the best writers, but the AP is a great resource for journalists, and they seem to have some kind of take and/or feed on every single story of relevance.
But, um, they also have some kind of take and/or feed on a bunch of terrible stories that no one needs a take or feed on. Can we talk about the AP YouTube raw footage feed and how it’s a fucking horrorcaust? I first noticed this a few weeks ago, but basically, any time there is an absolutely terrifying nightmare situation, the AP gets the security camera footage and posts it online. For no good reason. THERE ARE CHILDREN IN HERE, YOU CREEPS.
I am sorry for reposting all of these AP videos that should not exist in the first place, but to give you an example of what I mean:
Car Hits State Trooper
Car Slams Into Store (And People)
This one isn’t actually from the raw feed, it has a broadcaster explaining what is going on, but HOLY SHIT, STOP IT.
Less graphic, but equally unnecessary:
Family Fighting at a Funeral
I apologize for what I have done to your eyes, but know that I love your eyes and was only trying to OPEN THEM TO THE REALITY OF THE WORLD WE LIVE IN. Yuck, Associated Press. Even this video of a baby bear looking at his baby reflection hardly begins to make up for what you have done:
Awwsociated Press. Nice effort, but not enough.
Too little too late! UNSUBSCRIBE.
