New Yorks Times Bans Mr Osama Bin Laden: Mr Hitler Approves

by | 4th, May 2011

HOW do you report on Osama bin Laden? The NY Times bans the use of Mr Osama bin Laden, as in who do you think you are kidding Mr Hitler:

At Jill and Bill’s request, we dropped the honorific for Bin Laden.

Without a “Mr.” in front of his name, it was decided that we should capitalize the “B” in Bin Laden on second references.

Quite so.
