Associated Press and Marriage Equality
The AP recently issued an internal memo that journalists should not refer to members of a gay marriage as "husbands" or "wives" unless as part of a quotation. Considering the fact that the AP influences journalistic style worldwide and is supposed to represent complete objectivity, this has some pretty significant ramifications for the way that our society conceptualizes gay marriage. Not surprisingly, there has been quite an uproar over the matter. You can read about it on the Huff Post website.
