Drop the term Free Trade in favour of an emotionally neutral term, like Unregulated Trade - when reporting and presenting on economic issues sign now

Certain words carry prejudice that may psychologically impact peoples opinions. Delivery of news should be factual and emotionally neutral. This is why many news sources choose to call what some would call 'terrorists' as the more value emotionally neutral term, 'militant'

With this in mind we declare our disturbance at the accidental, or intentional use of emotionally influential words - like "Free" when discussing the Economy:

for example, "Free Trade"

"Free Trade" is not a value neutral term, 'Free' is a strong word, a happy word - that is bound to influence viewers of the news since it is not emotionally neutral.

We therefore request that this fact be recognised - that 'Free Trade' is not a neutral way to describe, unregulated trade. And that another term should be used:

perhaps, Unregulated Trade, Wild Capitalism. Or something less positive to the ultra-capitalist cause.
