This Is a Shameful Headline': Associated Press Blasted Online for 'Slanted' Tweet on Texas Shooting

News

"I hate Geller, and that's still a bad headline."

The Associated Press was blasted online Thursday night for a tweet about the shooting at a weekend "draw Muhammad" event.

The news outlet failed to disclose in the tweet that the two individuals who died were the suspects who opened fire with the intent of harming participants and organizers.

The AP sent out a following tweet, again failing to note that the two dead were the suspects shot and killed by police.

Individuals quickly jumped on the AP, calling the headline "slanted" and criticizing the news outlet for bias.

At the time of publication, the AP had not retracted or commented on the tweet.
