The Associated Press' executive editor called on governments around the world to support an independent press, warning Monday that efforts to silence the media through intimidation and violence are "in effect an attack on a nation's people."
"It's 'illegal immigrant' no more" says The Associated Press, which banished the phrase from its usage guide on Tuesday — the latest stylistic edict for journalists who have juggled such terms as "undocumented worker" or "illegal alien," its politically incorrect variant.
"Bill de Blasio is a charming and talented man, but the people he's meeting with are doing so because he's the mayor of New York City, not because he's a charming and talented man," Carroll said in an interview. "We're not pushing this for our end. We're pushing for it because the press is a stand-in for the public."
AP Senior Vice President and Executive Editor Kathleen Carroll said such a tool would be useful for journalists to analyze data obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests.
