The AP is a wire service and their articles are carried by many newspapers across the country, including the Washington Times. Citing an AP story from the Washington Times is no different than citing an AP story from the Kansas City Star or the Houston Chronicle.

I think there are reasons to doubt AP's credibility when they cover some kinds of stories (e.g. stories in a war zone where they use stringers who are allied with our country's enemies), but not so much in this case. And unless you have reason to believe that Hotair or the Washington Times have misrepresented the AP wire story, I don't think there's any reason to doubt their credibility.
