The AP's 'Professing'

The Associated Press likes this sentence about the Edwards-Hunter affair so much that it crops up in at least three stories under three different bylines.

A former Edwards campaign staff member professes to be the father.

But "professes" often suggests doubt, at least to me.

Given the accusations of political bias at the AP Washington bureau, maybe words should be chosen a little more carefully.
