An Associated Press editor tells staff that taunting other news outlets is “not the impression we want to reflect as an organization. Let our reporting take the lead.”

All,

Please, immediately, stop taunting on social networks about CNN and others’ SCOTUS ruling mistake and the AP getting it right.

That’s not the impression we want to reflect as an organization. Let our reporting take the lead.

Best,

David
