Fox News Media Reporter Brian Flood reported that the Associated Press Stylebook Tsars once again show remarkable sensitivity to liberal demands. An internal memo from John Daniszewski was leaked and posted on Twitter by Julio Ricardo Varela. He urged PA journalists to avoid the word “crisis” to describe the border “challenge” for Joe Biden.

“Crisis” The current event in the news – a sharp increase in the arrival of unaccompanied minors – is a problem for border officials, a political challenge for Biden, and a dire situation for many migrants making the trip, but it doesn’t does not match the classic dictionary definition. of a crisis, which is: “A turning point in the course of anything; decisive or crucial moments, state or event, “OR” a moment or state of affairs involving great danger or disturbance, often threatening to have unpleasant consequences [an economic crisis] – SYN. Emergency. Therefore, we should avoid, or at least be very careful, to refer to the current situation as a crisis on our own, even though we can cite others using this language.. “(Type in bold in the original.)
I think it is obvious that the PA liberals think like Yamiche Alcindor, that Biden is seen as a “moral and decent man” by illegal immigrants and therefore they should tone down the language. Daniszewski is the same language cop who insisted that AP will capitalize “black” but not “white”.
Once the Language Cop memo leaked, Daniszewski posted a Similar blog post the next day, which began in large print: “With immigration and the US border back in the news, it is especially imperative for the PA to systematically use precise and neutral language in its cover and to give the border numbers proper context given the political rhetoric on the subject. “
He added: “Since migration is such a burning issue, we should also try to avoid images of war or natural disaster, which could portray migrants as a negative and harmful influence. Avoid emotional words like assault, tidal wave, flood, flood, surge, invasion, army, march, stealth, and stealth. let’s be as neutral as possible while backing up our characterizations with figures and facts. “(The bold characters in these quotes are mine.)
Fred T. with the right spoon unearthed embarrassing tweets that showed how the PA used the border “crisis” under Trump.
Tweeting a “burning photo” of two deceased migrants does not avoid “emotional words” or reinforcing Trump as a “negative and harmful influence.”
And Omri Ceren really pointed out the hilarity that AP stands for neutrality and precision:
The PA during the dem administration: don’t call what is happening at the border a “crisis” because it is not “precise and neutral language”. https://t.co/Sm81QQmNMo

AP now regularly stands for Advocacy Press or Activism Press, whichever you prefer.
