Nashville – An “old school” journalism professor at a local university went on a 45 minute rant today to point out that the Associated Press’s Twitter account didn’t use correct AP Style when its account was hacked earlier today.
“Look at this! Look at this!” As he held up a copy of the 2013 edition of the AP Stylebook, “do you know what this means? It’s the Bible of our trade and craft, and here we are, the internet is ruining it! First it took my job, and now it’s taking away the things I teach?” The professor reportedly spent the remaining class time quietly sobbing into a copy of today’s local newspaper.
