The only surprise to me is that the AP actually reported it for what it was – a carefully planned and orchestrated propaganda event. But they still rolled with the line that all the words of her letter to the Pope, and her remarks to reporters afterwards, were simply hers and hers alone – no coaching. Heck – EVERY little five year old talks like an adult with complete sentences, political awareness, etc. But I do have to give AP credit for at least reporting where it all came from.
