I was going to get to this in connection with items appearing at other places (e.g., New York Daily News, NewsBreaker tweet; HTs to Twitchy here and here), but Noel Sheppard trumped what I had planned by finding the same horrible situation occurring at the Associated Press.
So I’ll introduce Noel’s item and link to it:

By now you’ve likely heard about the woman caught with a dead baby in her bag while shopping at a Victoria’s Secret in Manhattan.
Despite revelations that Tiona Rodriguez suffocated her child shortly after its birth, the Associated Press refuses to call it a baby.
