I noticed today that Ann Althouse has a "civility bullshit" tag and I immediately realized that something like that is almost certain to come in handy here as well.
And whoop, there it is:
"We were just having a discussion about the Chicago mayoral race," King told viewers. "My friend Andy Shaw…used the term 'in the crosshairs' in talking about the candidates out there. We're trying, we're trying to get away from that language. Andy is a good friend, he's covered politics for a long time, but we're trying to get away from using that kind of language. We won't always be perfect, so hold us accountable when we don't meet your standards."
