Last week, an article from the Society for Professional Journalists (SPJ) announced an "educational campaign" to "explore the issue" of using the term "illegal immigrant" in journalism, claiming that the phrase was offensive to persons of "Latino descent." After controversy erupted over this asinine proposal, the SPJ has backed off from the argument and assigned the idea as an opinion posed by a blogger. Cam Edwards speaks with Matthew Boyle, writer for The Daily Caller, who says he will not be renewing his membership with the SPJ this year. Originally aired 1/3/2011.
