Vanessa Gera of Associated Press had reported that the Soviets invaded Poland in September 1939. Ersjdamoo’s Blog jeered at this error. (Background: Poland, The Next Big Crisis, Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of September 18, 2014.)
This morning I expected the AP gaffe to have been “scrubbed clean” by now. Surely such an omniscient power as the Associated Press would have been highly embarrassed that the boo-boo had got past its editors. Surely the newspapers which print the AP stories would have spotted the goof thanks to their vigilant editors. Instead I find the Vanessa Gera report published, as is, all over the place! Here is an astonishing paragraph from the report:
Anxieties hang in the air as Poland marks the 75th anniversary Wednesday of the Soviet invasion of Poland at the start of World War II, one of several Russian attacks on its neighbor over the past centuries. With President Vladimir Putin showing renewed imperial inclinations, some Poles can’t help but wonder if the 1939 invasion by the Red Army really was the last time Russia will make an unwanted foray here.
The Orwellian AP report is titled, “Polish fears of Russia run high on war anniversary”, and dated Sep. 17, 2014 11:36 AM EDT. Currently it can be viewed at this link: http://bigstory.ap.org/article/polish-fears-russia-run-high-war-anniversary
Of course, it was not the Soviets who invaded Poland on September 1, 1939. Adolph Hitler’s Germany were the ones who invaded Poland. We all know that, right? (Except it seems NOT ONE of the “news professionals” has yet caught the glaring error in Vanessa Gera’s report.)
It didn’t used to be that way. Back on September 7, 1988, Vice President George Herbert Walker Bush (Bush 41) had addressed the American Legion and said, “Today, you remember. I wonder how many Americans remember. Today is Pearl Harbor Day.” Back then, United Press International had quickly pounced on the error. 
Of course we all know that the Pearl Harbor attack, the “Day of Infamy”, occurred on December 7, 1941 – right? The American people are not stupid. That, by the way, is something else Bush 41 told the world (although I am relying on memory here).
On March 2, 2009, The Globe, a weekly tabloid newspaper, reported that George W. Bush (Bush 43) was spending his time drinking Jim Beam and watching The History Channel at his ranch in Crawford, Texas.  So even “Dubya” Bush would know when Pearl Harbor happened and that Nazi Germany invaded Poland on September 1, 1939. And yet Associated Press and the newspapers carrying the Vanessa Gera report seem not to know such basic history. But even so, these professional “news” outlets do not hesitate to give us all lectures on the subject of how “conspiracy theorists” are deranged, overly simplistic, and a danger to America. See, for example, Newsweek: Conspiracy Theories “A Clear and Present Danger”, the Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of May 19, 2014.
