Sorry tipsters for the delay…was on a plane. The Washington Times — continuing a trend of smart changes — has changed its editorial policy in a few areas (namely: “gay” instead of “homosexual” and “illegal immigrants” instead of “illegal aliens”).
All: Here are some recent updates to TWT style. 1) Clinton will be the headline word for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. 2) Gay is approved for copy and preferred over homosexual, except in clinical references or references to sexual activity. 3) The quotation marks will come off gay marriage (preferred over homosexual marriage). 4) Moderate is approved, but centrist is still allowed. 5) We will use illegal immigrants, not illegal aliens. Thanks.
