Neo-Nazi white supremacist groups are emboldened by the results of the presidential election. And that’s prompting media that cover these 21st century Nazis to re-evaluate how the racist groups are covered.
The Associated Press just released standards for reporting on the so-called “alt-right” movement—a name designed to normalize the presence of neo-Nazis in America who supported Donald Trump.
The Associated Press urges reporters to avoid using the “alt-right” name unless they provide ample context about who and what these 21st century Nazis really are.
Otherwise AP says the media risks normalizing their extremist views to a mass audience.

Trump’s Carrier Deal Still Ships 1370 U.S. Jobs To Mexico
The Indiana AFL-CIO says it’s cautiously optimistic about the deal struck by Trump and Carrier executives to save jobs.
While “elated” 1,100 working people and their families know their jobs are safe this holiday season, the Indiana AFL-CIO says 1,370 people between the two plants in Huntington and Indianapolis are still losing their jobs to Mexico.
And since Carrier’s announcement in February that it was sending jobs to Mexico, several other Indiana plants have announced they too are shipping more American jobs to Mexico.
So Indiana organized labor says “Until every working family in America feels secure knowing their job will remain in the U.S., we will expect the president-elect to uphold his campaign promise.”
