This is one of the main ways that AP proves its bias consistently.Public safety workers, including police officers, firefighters and state troopers, would keep their rights under the plan. Those unions endorsed Walker in his campaign for governor last year, but he said they were exempted because he did not want to jeopardize public safety if they walked off the job.This was paragraph seven of an article that ran on yahoo news (link) without a mention of the fact that only 4 out of 315 (or so) public safety unions supported the governor.
A correction should be issued for the misleading paragraph. The only purpose of that paragraph is to make it seem like Walker is exempting his friends.

I sent this email to AP today; I do not expect a response.
