At least, that's what a couple Associated Press editors thought last week, when they changed a word in an AP story to make it seem as if a Los Angeles city council member had harmed a cat during a press conference:
The AP piece said an LA councilman "held a kitten at a City Hall news conference" while a pet sterilization ordinance was signed. Two staffers at the North County Times changed "held" to "strangled."
The AP has fired the editor who made the change "as a joke," and the editor who allowed it to go to print has been suspended.
Most importantly, though, the widdle kitty is fine.
