AP distorts the news

Why does this AP story--Gunmen seize Iraq Olympic committee chief--not include crucial facts?

The gunmen used three government vehicles and wore police uniforms when they kidnapped the Iraq Olympic Committee Chair and "at least 30 others." The corporate media gives us a distorted view of what's happening in Iraq and around the world. If the news media refuses to provide the crucial "context" factor in their reports they can at least include the crucial facts and stop omitting them.
