I fall on the side that the rules are slanted to one side, toward the liberal side. He is a conservative and wanted to use perfectly exceptable words, undocumented, and illegal alien.

He was a jerk, but at some point he must have felt it was time to push harder and got canned. That's the way it goes. I admire the stick to his guns attitude. And they hired a replacement, time will tell if there will be a repeat firing, and there will be if he doesn't do what he is told.

In fact it seems like the editing department didn't even have much of a problem with his words. They'd just change the unacceptable ones to the acceptable ones and move on with their day.


Ummm, generally speaking as an editor, when I change a clients words to other words, it was very much BECAUSE there was a problem with the words they used for some reason or other.

It is a bit disingenuous of you to claim there wasn't any problem with his words and then say they just changed them to "acceptable" ones. That's a contradiction of your own words in two sentences, and if I was your editor ... I would have a problem with your words and change them generally to try to keep you from looking silly.
