Has the Associated Press been taken over by Republicans?

I have noticed a lot of the internet articles and radio news seem to put the Republican spin front-and-center, if not in the title of the news article itself.

1. Trying to be a voice for "there are good people on both sides". Facts not so much.

2. Think Rupert Murdock

He bought it several years ago. A good friend has been an editor there for years and would be happy to quiet share her experiences as the focus shifted ever so slightly rightward.

3. Rupert Murdoch does NOT own AP...

The Associated Press (AP) is an American not-for-profit news agency headquartered in New York City. Founded in 1846, it operates as a cooperative, unincorporated association. Its members are U.S. newspapers and broadcasters. AP news reports, distributed to its members and customers, are produced in English, Spanish and Arabic.

4. Thanks

I see some likely RW's on the Board of Directors. Makes me wonder who is in charge of the editorial board.
