Insight into KUOW's decision to identify the alt right as white nationalism
KUOW's online editor Isolde Raftrey explain that the identification change is to have more clarity in their news coverage of the group.
It was a term that seemingly came out of nowhere and then was everywhere during the runup to the election of Donald Trump: The alt-right.
Sounds more like a music genre than a political philosophy.
And now, some news outlets are questioning the use of the alt-right label to describe a movement that embraces white supremacy and anti-Semitism.
Among those organizations rejecting the term - Seattle's public radio station KUOW. They've decided to go with "white nationalism" instead.
