AP calls Joe Wilson "whistleblower"

In a story headlined "Journalists and Leakers feeling the Heat" AP special correspondent Charles Hanley  has now tagged Joe Wilson a "whistleblower." Apparently, he never read the Senate Intelligence Committee's Report. Perhaps he didn't have time to read it,  it's a long report afterall.

But he certainly must have read Susan Schmidt's July 2004 summary in the Washington Post. Yeah, the one that discloses Wilson mislead the paper.  If he missed that, he must have come across Deborah Orin's November 2005 column in the New York Post. Ok, this was too good to fact check.  Oh, all he had to do to find this out was check a website called sourcewatch. No bias here.
