Liberal Media Outlet Orders Staff To Stop Referring To What’s Happening At The Border As A ‘Crisis’

The liberal media outlet Politico has ordered staffers to stop using the term ‘crisis’ to describe what’s happening at the border.

This is a classic tactic of the left. If we stop calling it a crisis, it’s not longer a crisis.

Is there a possibility that this new rule came directly from the Biden administration?

Politico Orders Staff to Quit Referring to Surge in Border Crossings as a ‘Crisis’

Politico is ordering its staff to quit referring to the surge in border crossings as a crisis, according to an internal letter obtained by the Washington Examiner.

The edict comes after the White House walked back President Joe Biden’s comments referring to “the crisis that ended up on the border with young people.”

“Avoid referring to the present situation as a crisis, although we may quote others using that language while providing context,” Politico deputy production director Maya Parthasarathy wrote in a memo to staff. “While the sharp increase in the arrival of unaccompanied minors is a problem for border officials, a political challenge for the Biden administration and a dire situation for many migrants who make the journey, it does not fit the dictionary definition of a crisis. If using the word ‘crisis,’ we need to ask of what and to whom.”

The Associated Press won’t use the word “crisis,” either, telling reporters in late March to only use “accurate and neutral” terms in reporting on the increase in border crossings and to “avoid hyperbole in calling anything a crisis or an emergency.”

Rational people who can see what’s happening are still calling it a crisis.

Newsflash for Democrats and the media: Changing the words doesn’t change reality.
