Cindy Sheehan is claiming that the AP falsely reported that her book signing was a flop. I had expressed my own skepticism over the suggestion from the photo and caption that nobody showed up, but conceded the point that if the AP could have found a way to make it look like a smashing success, they would have. So who’s right?
Asked for a response, an AP spokesman commented this afternoon:

"Photographer Evan Vucci, queried about the incident today said that he was present at the book signing from about 10 a.m. to about 11 a.m. During that time, he said, people were coming in to have their books signed in small groups of a few at a time.

"At the time the photos were taken ‘maybe 5 people had come in,’ Vucci says, and Sheehan was waiting for more to stop by, which they did individually as well as in very small groups. Therefore the wording of the caption is accurate in that Sheehan was waiting for people to show up at her signing."
