The Associated Press has issued a directive. From now on, the AP staff will no longer refer to the Ground Zero mosque as “The Ground Zero Mosque”. No, really…

AP writers are instructed to refer to it as the NYC Mosque or:

_ mosque 2 blocks from WTC site
Muslim (or Islamic) center near WTC site
_ mosque near ground zero
_ mosque near WTC site

We can refer to the project as a mosque, or as a proposed Islamic center that includes a mosque.

Atlas Shrugs’ Pamela Geller reminds us that this is not new, it is journalistic practice.  Stacy “The Other” McCain is calling the AP the Associated Orwellian Press. Or the Ministry of Truth.  Take your pick.
But I like best the new appellation Big Fur Hat has given the Ground Zero Mosque:  

The Landing Gear Mosque.

What do you think?
