This is the official AP Twitter account. It’s not a parody.

As much of world watches Gaza war in horror, members of Congress fall over each other to support Israel: http://t.co/DepO2etLQS

Despite the backlash, the AP has yet to delete this. Instead it adds another Tweet with a more neutral headline.

Many U.S. lawmakers strongly back Israel in Gaza war (revises wording in this @AP tweet: http://t.co/RZs5dh0m2L ): http://t.co/OvBKx75U6Z

— The Associated Press (@AP) July 29, 2014

The Tweet misrepresents the story. It inserts its own editorializing into it. And it reads like something you expect to see from Al Jazeera.
