AP Now Calling Illegal Aliens "Undocumented Citizens"

Orwell just emailed me to say "Told you so."


@amber_athey points out that this isn't even part of AP's "style guide" to specify what euphemisms they will use -- so this actually breaks the style guide.

You'd get in trouble with deviating from the style guide to call them "illegal aliens" (which is what they are), but you can get away with breaking the style guide's rules to coin an even more Orwellian euphemism.
