By Any Means Necessary

AP Stylebook Says that Men Aged 18 or Older Should be Called “Men,” Not “Teen” or “Teenager,” So Why Does AP Keep Calling 18 Year Old Giant Michael Brown a “Teenager”?

So the rule exists for exactly to keep reporters from deciding on their own whether to sympathize a person as a “teenager” or to de-sympathize him as a “man.”

This is then an important situation in which AP should follow its own rule.

But instead it chooses to break it, and call the 6’4″, 260+ pound hulk Michael Brown a “teenager.”

Oh, and I know that Michael Brown is not accused of a crime, per se, but obviously the same rule attaches here for similar reasons– the whole point is to de-power the reporter from deciding when he wants to elicit sympathy in a legal matter, and when he doesn’t.

The fellating hacks of the progtard media break every other conceivable rule of objectivity in the furtherance of their agendas, so why would their own rulebook be an exception?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
