Example of how socialists hijack language

A journalist may normally write:

“Just as the San Luis Obispo City Council was preparing to approve a new clean energy choice law, the vote has been delayed to consider a conflict-of-interest claim.”

Notice how the name of the law almost makes the journalist advocate for it.

This is how the journalist should write that same sentence:

“Just as the San Luis Obispo City Council was preparing to approve the law named “a new clean energy choice”, the vote has been delayed to consider a conflict-of-interest claim.

The impact is the journalist remains neutral without inadvertently advocating the law and the name of the law now is in question.

Reducing fake news requires eternal vigilance.
