After some detective work, NPR ombudsman Alicia Shepard has discovered a new exception to identifying people as first and last name first, and last name on second references… White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, or just Rahm.

Oddly, several news organizations refer to him on a second reference as “Rahm Emanuel.” NPR has just decided to make that a policy after correspondent Nina Totenberg referred to Emanuel three times by his first name only on-air.

And it’s not just NPR. Shepard takes a look at how multiple news orgs refer to Emanuel on the second reference.
