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

US

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.

  1. In other words “lie for me”. Politico is ordering their editors/reporters to lie about the border CRISIS — as other members of mass media are already doing. The average citizen watching the news is insulated from the reality of what is really happening at the border. Just as there is supposed to be “truth in advertising” there should be a requirement for news media to report FACTS, not massaged opinions to support their narratives. Otherwise we already live in a totalitarian state. That is so unbelievable!!!

    “Totalitarianism is a concept for a form of government or political system that prohibits opposition parties, restricts individual opposition to the state and its claims, and exercises an extremely high degree of control over public and private life.”

  2. if yuou want the v.p. to visit the border you better arrest her “crack” cocaine dealer. otherwise, she is too busy getting high and laughing her ass off at the american people to get anything done.

  3. Well, I looked up the definition of crisis since the article states “the border situation does not fit the definition of crisis. So here is the definition #3 of crisis: 3a : an unstable or crucial time or state of affairs in which a decisive change is impending especially (like a “immigration crisis or border crisis” would fit nicely here) : one with the distinct possibility of a highly undesirable outcome a financial crisis, the nation’s energy crisis, {“the border crisis” would fit nicely here); b : a situation that has reached a critical phase the environmental crisis the unemployment crisis (Seems like “a border crisis” would fit nicely in definition 3a or 3b.

    So it seems to me WE HAVE A CRISIS!!! WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?

  4. And the newsies continue to wonder why they rank right down there alongside trial lawyers and child molesters in the public esteem.

  5. liberal media now censoring their employees speech! Government is also doing that. No more illegal aliens. Wow, if only it were that easy to get rid of them.

  6. Crisis is such a mild name for DISASTER and soon it will be a CATASTROPHY if they don’t shut it down and don’t count on Harris to do anything beause all she is doing is standing behind Biden everywhere he goes waiting for him to keel over so she can announce her transition to presidentress of the United States. Then she will start making her own rules and won’t take any orders from Bidens handlers becauseshe is even wackier than he is.
