Skip to comments.AP to reporters: Refer to GZ mosque as 'NYC mosque' now
Posted on 08/19/2010 2:49:30 PM PDT by paltz
The Associated Press sent an advisory out on Thursday telling its staff to stop referencing the controversial Cordoba House as the "Ground Zero Mosque." Instead, the AP wants their reporters to call it the "NYC Mosque." In an advisory the AP wrote:
Here is some guidance on covering the NYC mosque story, with assists from Chad Roedemeier in the NYC bureau and Terry Hunt in Washington: 1. We should continue to avoid the phrase "ground zero mosque" or "mosque at ground zero" on all platforms. (Weve very rarely used this wording, except in slugs, though we sometimes see other news sources using the term.) The site of the proposed Islamic center and mosque is not at ground zero, but two blocks away in a busy commercial area. We should continue to say its near ground zero, or two blocks away. WE WILL CHANGE OUR SLUG ON THIS STORY LATER TODAY from BC-Ground Zero Mosque to BC-NYC Mosque.

Why not the “Thumb Your Nose at NYC Mosque”?
Sorry, too late for revisionist bs.
Why not just the ‘Fxxx the People’ Mosque.
If this doesn’t prove the press is biased I don’t know what does.
This location IS Ground Zero!!
The NYC Mosque: That should set it apart from the other mosques in NYC.
Gee, it is almost as though this whole thing were being pushed by a terrorist sympathizer. Whodathunkit?
Imam Obama’s Ground ZERO terrorist hamosque is what it is.
How about the AP Mosque?
That’s JourNolism for ya’
Hmmm, how about a delicate response like “go pound sand”?
I like “the hamasque”
All linkage between the 9/11 attack and the mosque go down the memory hole. This will make it much easier to sneak in under the radar and build it later.
If the mosque is never built, they can't allow the phrase "Ground Zero Mosque" to be a symbol of our victory and their failure. Over time they intend to transform it into a symbol of our "religious intolerance".
Standard Operating Procedure for Dems: when you find yourself on the losing side of the argument, reframe and redefine. It's not a tax, it's an "investment". It's not an Abortion, it a "choice". In this case, it's a "cultural center"...
Because there’s only one New York City Mosque, right AP?
Doubt resistance here; but just what if one does not observe the new ID per this Ground Zero real estate?
(Muslim Moderates. . .define and defend and distinguish yourselves from your radical 'brethern'.)
Landing gear from one of the hijacked plane landed on this site.
Hence it is Ground Zero and the AP propagandists can better read up on their Goebbels-tactics. Lying prostitutes for the Obama regime.
Why do we put up with this bull???
We should all be so furious that we never EVER patronize them again, PERIOD!
We need to boycott everyone and every entity who speaks in favor of this slap in the face mosque.
I see a diagram that has the right name for it.
Ground Zero Victory Mosque.
Why aren’t we taking to the streets over this and that liar in the WH who claims to be Christian and never speaks well of Christians but yells at the top of his tobacco stained lungs about how the Muslims are so wonderful and how Islam is the savior of the world?
I have had IT!!!
Who will join me in saying NO MORE?
