Bias? What bias?

Associated Press story: “Is gay the new black?”

You have to get to the 14th paragraph before any opponent of same-sex marriage is quoted. Exactly one opponent is quoted, and the only other voices in the 1,110-word story are supporters of same-sex marriage, so that supporters outnumber opponents by a 4-to-1 ratio among sources quoted in the story.

Outside of AP stories, however, a clear majority of Americans oppose same-sex marriage, which has only ever been implemented by court decree. Ballot initiatives banning same-sex marriage have been passed in 31 of the 31 states where they’ve come to a vote.

The AP is no longer in the journalism business. They’re an activist lobbying organization.
