By Chris O'Shea Comment

The Associated Press recently released the results of its annual top stories poll. The stories were voted on by editors and news directors from newspapers across the country. Here’s the list:

  1. The BP Oil Spill
  2. Health Care Overhaul
  3. Republicans Gain Control of the House
  4. The Economy
  5. Haiti Earthquake
  6. Tea Party Movement
  7. Chilean Miners
  8. Iraq
  9. Wikileaks
  10. Afghanistan

Popular stories that somehow got left off the list include Arizona’s immigrations laws, the Icelandic volcano eruptions, and Steve in accounting finally getting caught stealing paper clips.
