Many take news articles from years in the past and "reissue" the news as recent.
2. Per an anonymous source President Bush was autographing US flags while in Austria in June 2006. This is not illegal (there is no law against "desecration" of a flag, just a code of guidelines), but bloggists use this to point out that the GOP is currently leading a campaign to make illegal the burning of the flag, and therefore this is hypocracy. The blogs that use this show a picture of the President signing a flag from an AP story in 2003. Again, no stories were posted on in by the AP, CNN.com etc. The goal of the blogspiracy: to raise awareness of the GOP's ammendment to ban flag burning and claim the party is hypocritical on this issue.
