DC Times Drops “Gay” Scare Quotes

The new editor of the Washington Times, DC’s Moonie-owned right-wing newspaper, has updated the paper’s style rules. New rules:

1) Clinton will be the headline word for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. 2) Gay is approved for copy and preferred over homosexual, except in clinical references or references to sexual activity. 3) The quotation marks will come off gay marriage (preferred over homosexual marriage). 4) Moderate is approved, but centrist is still allowed. 5) We will use illegal immigrants, not illegal aliens.

Good for him. Now let’s see if his “paper” gets any “better”.
