ALG Minute: Jill Biden Doctor Flap

Joe Biden’s wife, Jill Biden – who has a doctorate in education – has for years insisted on being called Dr. Jill Biden. But even reliably Lefty news outlets such as CNN and USA Today aren’t using that title and neither are we. Here’s why. With the ALG Minute, I’m Catherine Mortensen. It’s because w follow the AP Stylebook, the Bible of professional communicators since 1953. According to the latest AP Stylebook: If mention of degrees is necessary to establish someone’s credentials, the preferred form is to avoid an abbreviation and use instead a phrase such as: John Jones, who has a doctorate in psychology. However, because the public frequently identifies Dr. only with physicians, care should be taken to ensure that the individual’s specialty is stated in first or second reference.

However, don’t be surprised if the Associated Press bows to political correctness and changed its style guide to accommodate those on the Left who are losing their minds over anyone who refuses to call Jill Biden doctor.
