Talk:US President Biden says Russian President Putin must be ousted

Latest comment: 4 months ago by Heavy Water in topic phrase "must be ousted" may be misleading

CNBC? edit

@SVTCobra: not sure what you got from the CNBC source that wasn't available elsewhere. --JJLiu112 (talk) 06:16, 27 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

It was just one of the three sources I had read before I started writing. This did end up a little shorter than I first intended and as you noticed I didn't even add categories. I have now removed CNBC so as to ease a review if it is entirely redundant. BTW, not asking you to change name back, but ouster (see number 3) is a perfectly good word. --SVTCobra 06:32, 27 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
I tell you the truth, I've never heard of it (first impression seemed like a typo, as in the verb person who ousts) and anyway it seems either localised or in disuse. But I take it, I should consult before renaming. Nonetheless, 'ousted' is anecdotally more common in use. JJLiu112 (talk) 07:05, 27 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
I'd disagree 'ouster' is in disuse. Here it is in some recent headlines: [1], [2], [3] and [4]. Cheers, SVTCobra 13:57, 27 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

phrase "must be ousted" may be misleading edit

That is not what was said, verbatim. Titling the article like that imparts a bias as to what was meant or implied by the president. 2601:80:4680:9ED0:39D6:59DF:C2C2:C011 (talk) 11:03, 3 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

As it wasn’t aroundbquotation marks, it is understood to mean “he generally indicated these remarks”, rather than it was a direct quote. JJLiu112 (talk) 20:54, 3 April 2022 (UTC)Reply
I've long been uncomfortable with this headline making such a claim, and I still am. The IP, above, put it best. It wasn't in quotation marks, yes. It's still a problem, in that we apparently interpreted Biden's intent rather than merely reporting on the facts of what he said. Should a {{correction}} be issued on the basis of neutrality?
