Who twisted the AP story?

The more I think about the shoddy AP reportage of the DNT’s original story on the handcuffing of a speaker I have to wonder who trimmed it down and sent it out to the Associated Press. Think about it. The original story had Loren Martell promoting Plan B and quoting Tim Grover. The AP story has Martell against fixing crumbling schools and verbally attacking the School Board Chairman. I don’t think an impartial reporter at AP would have done such violence to the original story. It smells of something the DNT sent out to belittle Tim Grover’s antagonist. The Trib, which had recently begun reporting as though they were no longer in bed with the School Board, seems to have climbed back under the covers.
