A Look at The New York Sun’s Style Guide

Uncategorized Comments (0)

As noted by AIO, The New York Observer takes a look at the style guide of the New York Sun—a paper with a decidedly anti-Iranian stance. Some of the publications’ specs raise important questions about the ideological parameters for covering a subject like Iran:

“Ethnic. Means not Jewish or Christian.”

“West Bank and Gaza Strip. Territories under Israeli control from 1967 onward. ‘The territories’ is acceptable on second reference, as are Judea or Samaria for the Southern and Northern regions of the West Bank. Avoid the phrase ‘occupied territories.'”

“communist, socialist. See AP stylebook. Any favorable reference to a communist must be shown to either the editor or the managing editor of the Sun before publication.”
