AP Spins “Bush = Hitler” HS Teacher Story

Our one party media at work.

From the Democrat organ, the Associated Press:

Colo. Teacher Punished for Bush Comment

[Note "comment" in the singular. Whereas in reality it was a twenty minute anti-Bush rant.]

AURORA, Colo. – About 150 high school students walked out of class to protest a decision to put a teacher on leave while they investigate remarks he made about President Bush in class, including that some people compare Bush to Adolf Hitler.

[Note that the AP think the students "protest" against this action against the teacher is the most important part of this story. Note also that the AP indicates the worst thing Bennish said was that "some people compare Bush to Hitler. Whereas in fact Bennish compared Bush to Hitler repeatedly and authoritatively.]

The protest came Thursday as administrators began investigating whether Overland High School teacher Jay Bennish violated a policy requiring balancing viewpoints in the classroom, Cherry Creek School District spokeswoman Tustin Amole said.

"It was peaceful. The students yelled, but there was no fighting," Amole said. "Most of them did return to class."

A telephone number listed for Bennish, who has been teaching social studies and American history at Overland since 2000, had been disconnected.

[Note that the AP ignores the fact that this rant came in a geography class.]

Sophomore Sean Allen recorded about 20 minutes of Bennish’s class during a Feb. 1 discussion about Bush’s State of the Union speech and gave the recording to his father, who complained to the principal, Amole said.

"After listening to the tape, it’s evident the comments in the class were inappropriate. There were not adequate opportunities for opposing points of view," she said.

[Note that this is the worst thing the AP allows anyone to say about Bennish. He didn’t allow other points of view.]

Deborah Fallin, spokeswoman for the Colorado Education Association, which represents about 37,000 union teachers, said it will not represent Bennish because he is not a member, but said that Bennish has hired an attorney.

[Note that the AP did not think its readers deserved to know that Bennish has hired the same lawyer as the America-hating pretend Indian art plagiarist, Ward Churchill.]

This is what the Associated Press does with the news each and every day.

By the way, behold some of the students who walked out in protest:
