WashTimes Style Change Backlash Continues
Topic: NewsBusters

Tom Blumer goes a step farther than fellow NewsBuster Tim Graham in criticizing the Washington Times for dumping "homosexual" and "illegal alien" as preferred terms (you know, like every other legitimate news organization in the country): Blumer asserts in a Feb. 27 post that "Washington Times editor John Solomon has begun selling out to politically correct and objectively inaccurate language," adding, "The reason for the Times to even exist is slowly but surely being eliminated."

So use of loaded political terms is the reason the Times exists, and not because it's a money pit for a cult leader? (Blumer doesn't explain why the terms being newly embraced are "politically correct and objectively inaccurate.")

Blumer was then somehow moved to pen a paean to retired Times editor Wesley Pruden, sung to the tune of Chicago's "Harry Truman":

America needs you, Wesley Pruden
Wesley could you please come home?
The new guy's really bad,
A PC flack gone mad.
So Wesley please come back and save the paper we all know and love.

Um, yeah, whatever ...

Still, this seems like the perfect time for Graham and Blumer to be touting the fact that MRC news division still embraces "homosexual" and "illegal alien." Right?
