  •  I'm not sure (5+ / 0-)

    fournier has any say whatsoever in what goes into the Stylebook. Even though it's updated every year, most of the changes are minor (with the exception of the Internet language that crept in over the last decade).

    •  I'm aware of that. (5+ / 0-)

      What I'm concerned about is the fact that the AP has stated that it's taking all of its public affairs journalism in a new direction, and that Fournier is leading this effort.

      You may be right, but I'm still worried about it. AP does exert a large amount of influence over trends in journalism, and I don't want the kind of reporting Fournier is advocating to become an accepted practice.

      Oh Danny Boy we'll beat them, give up and we're going nowhere, and oh, wouldn't you like to live them down?
