The Associated Press has forbidden journalists from using politically incorrect words (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

by Theresa @, Wednesday, July 12, 2017, 15:12

The Associated Press has forbidden journalists from using politically incorrect words like “terrorist,” “Islamist” and even “migrant,” according to journalist Rachel Alexander.

The 2017 AP Stylebook, intended as a universal guide for writers, censors a number of different words in what clearly betrays the organization’s leftist bias.

In an article for the Hill, Alexander explains how when journalists submit an article to a mainstream media outlet, editors will simply change the offending words and replaces them with politically correct alternatives.

“A pro-life author who submits a piece taking a position against abortion will see the words “pro-life” changed to “anti-abortion,” because the AP Stylebook instructs, “Use anti-abortion instead of pro-life and pro-abortion rights instead of pro-abortion or pro-choice,” she writes.
