UPDATE NEWSPEAK DICTIONARIES ACCORDINGLY: CNN’s Chris Cuomo: Sanctuary Cities Are A ‘Misnomer:’

CNN’s Chris Cuomo minimized the problem of sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants on Monday’s New Day. When Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s special counsel, touted how Trump “opened up the eyes to (sic) many Americans that didn’t even know sanctuaries existed,” Cuomo claimed that sanctuary cities are a “misnomer.” He underlined that “those are cities…are in disputes with ICE about how you deal with people that they’re holding….But they’re not safe havens the way you’re describing.”

The liberal anchor might want to object to his own network’s coverage of the issue of illegal immigration, as the term has come up multiple times since Trump’s announcement. One of Cuomo’s co-anchors, Michael Pereira, and correspondent Dan Simon used the phrase on the Wednesday edition of the morning newscast, as they covered the murder of Kathryn Steinle in San Francisco by an illegal alien.

And of course, back in 2013, AP erased the phrase “illegal immigrant” from its style guide, and much (but not all) of the DNC-MSM quickly followed suit. And yet, erasing words and declaring certain phrases as thoughtcrime doesn’t stop the actual crimes from occurring in the real world beyond the TV studios and newsrooms.
