We’re demanding that The New York Times follow the example set forth by the Associated Press, and change their internal style guide to stop using the term “illegal immigrant” to describe undocumented Americans.

#SourcesMatter

It would be unthinkable for journalists to cite the KKK as a legitimate source in articles about race. It would be unimaginable to cite Nazi leaders in articles about issues impacting the Jewish community.

It should be no different for anti-immigrant hate groups, whose founder is a white nationalist – yet the Washington Post has cited anti-immigrant hate groups 50 times in the first six months of 2018 alone.

Sign our petition to demand that the Washington Post stop legitimizing hate groups by citing them in their reporting.
