Jim Hoft for the Gateway Pundit reports ,This is crazy. The Associated Press released new guidelines for using the term “alt right” in association with Trump supporters. The new rules urge journalists to connect the group to Nazis and KKK members in their reports. Don’t be fooled – The left is doing this so they can label all Trump supporters as racists. This enables hateful liberal reporters to label all Trump reporters as evil racists.
This is exactly insane.
The Associated Press launched new guidelines for making use of the words “alt right” in association with Trump proponents. The new rules encourage journalists to link the group to Nazis and KKK members in their stories.
Do not be misled – The left is carrying this out so they can brand all Trump proponents as racists.
This allows hateful liberal reporters to tag all Trump reporters as evil racists.
The AP can kiss some booty.
The Hill noted:
The Associated Press Monday released new guidelines for referencing the “alt-right,” which ask that journalists use the term alongside its definition and in context of its association with racist beliefs.
The new guidelines read:
“‘Alt-right’ (quotation marks, hyphen and lower case) may be used in quotes or modified as in the ‘self-described’ or ‘so-called alt-right’ in stories discussing what the movement says about itself. Avoid using the term generically and without definition, however, because it is not well known and the term may exist primarily as a public-relations device to make its supporters’ actual beliefs less clear and more acceptable to a broader audience.”
The new guidelines come after criticism of media outlets by some observers who view the term has having “normalized” President-elect Donald Trump’s nationalistic rhetoric and that of some Trump supporters. Specifically, many object to the term’s use alongside senior adviser Stephen Bannon, whose hiring was applauded by neo-Nazi and KKK groups.
Bannon has described Breitbart News, his former outlet, as “the platform of the alt-right.”
The new reference went on to say that, “in the past (The AP) have called such beliefs racist, neo-Nazi or white supremacist.”
