Associated Press lies to the public.

There is an article showing up on all Associated Press affiliated news sites regarding the new GTA IV teaser trailer saying:

In previous versions of the game, players killed both police officers and prostitutes, and sold pornography to children.

The emphasis on “sold pornography to children” is mine. This is a blatant lie. At no point in any GTA game do you sell pornography to children. In fact children don’t feature in GTA games at all.

The article also quotes NYC officials trying to distance themselves and the city from the fictional, satirical, parody of New York named Liberty City that is featured in the trailer, the game, and at least two prior GTA games.

When will the mainstream press just damn well stop writing such sensationalist drivel and posting it as news!
