Odds are your newsroom did NOT use the “s-word” in reporting about the President’s language. But a lot of newsrooms did.
The Washington Post summarized what the media did in this article.
One other quick question, regarding a Presidential Tweet this morning: did your newsroom give perspective to the Tweet in which the President said the Obama administration did the embassy-switch deal in London, by reporting that the decision was actually made to sell the existing U.S. Embassy in London and build a new one in 2008, when George W. Bush was President?
It’s pretty easy to check this stuff.
Another reason it’s said that Journalism is not stenography.
