Associated Press gets slammed for tweet on George H.W. Bush’s death

The 41st President of the United States George Hubert Walker Bush died Friday night at the age of 94.

Like any president, his administration had its ups and down. Yes, he may have angered people on the right and the left, but that’s the nature of the job. Whatever decision a president makes, everyone is going to have an opinion and there will be a fair amount of people upset with the move.

However, when announcing the death of a President of the United States, one would think it might be possible to remove the politics from the announcement. Unfortunately, one would also be wrong.  The Associated Press, when announcing H.W.’s death, felt the need to interject politics into the situation.

I understand that what is said in the post is true, but was it really necessary in order to tell everyone he had died? Many people on social felt the same way and let their feelings be known.
