Here’s a shock: The Associated Press leans left. I hope you were sitting down for that. Obviously, this is not news to anyone who follows the establishment media coverage of, well, anything. But when the AP leans left, it brings a lot of other publications along with it. That’s because lots of media outlets (including The Western Journal) publish content from the AP, and others use The Associated Press’ guidance on style to a greater or lesser extent (again, including The Western Journal). In recent years, some of the entries in AP style, however, have become increasingly agenda-driven.
