I’M SORRY I EVER MET YOU

Canadian Press editor James McCarten put out a call for additions to its periodically-issued reference book CP Caps and Spelling. McCarten put that call out on the medium where all Canadian journalists spend the majority of their time, Twitter.

Eventually I got McCarten’s attention, though all he did was tone-police. Disregarding all that (and McCarten), I assembled a list of over a hundred (not “a 100”; not “100”) neologisms that could be added to CP Caps and Spelling. The intent is to redress hacks’ left-wing bias and their unwillingness to admit the Internet is real despite their spending all day online.

(As a point of comparison, searching the Canadian Business & Current affairs database shows that Canadian Press–bylined or –implicated articles use anti-fascist 20 times more often than antifa. That’s evidence of bias.)
