WASHINGTON DC --- Today the Associated Press defended their glowing article about Hillary Clinton's handling of a hostage situation several hundred miles away from where she was located. The theoretically impartial AP downplayed criticism that they exaggerated Hillary's role in the crisis.
"This was a very balanced and honest article," said an AP spokesperson. "If anything, we downplayed the level of her handling of the situation. I mean look how much attention Rudy Giuliani got for handling 9/11, and he had an entire network of helpers in the largest city in the country to help him out. Hillary reacted like a leader, presidential leader, and had only a few dozen advisers to give her guidance. Hillary remained calm. Sure, her life wasn't in immediate danger, but the life of another person, who she didn't know, several hundred miles away, in her campaign office space, was in danger. And the guy actually asked to speak with her. Did any of the 9/11 terrorists ask to speak with Giuliani? I don't think so. I bet he would have cried like a baby. Not Hillary. She was calm. Presidential."
