Michelle Malkin: AP Wrong to Ban the Term "Illegal Immigrant"
“File this in the overflowing cabinet labeled, ‘No Wonder the Mainstream Media Is Dying.’ On Tuesday, the Associated Press announced that it is banishing the phrase ‘illegal immigrant’ from its famous stylebook. The world’s largest newsgathering outlet now advises reporters that ‘illegal’ will ‘only refer to an action, not a person,’” says Michelle Malkin.”The AP directs writers not to use the terms ‘illegal alien, an illegal, illegals or undocumented’ anymore, except ‘in direct quotations.’ It won’t be long before illegal border crossers, illegal visa overstayers, illegal deportation evaders, document fraudsters, and illegal-alien traffickers are all referred to as ‘our fellow Americans.’ Without the quotations. Mark my words.”
