When confirmed bachelor George Clooney finally did get married, the world fell in love with his accomplished wife. Amal Clooney, née Alamuddin, is a human rights lawyer who has defended big names like Julian Assange and former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, as well as Al Jazeera English journalist Mohamed Fahmy. She's been an appointee to numerous U.N. panels, including one that investigated America's use of drones as counter-terrorism tools. She clerked for Justice Sonia Sotomayor in the U.S. Court of Appeals. She's also co-authored four legal books. It's quite a resumé.
But to the Associated Press, she's just Mrs. George Clooney. The venerable news source sent out a tweet on Saturday in the very early morning, promoting a link to a story on the latest development in her case with Fahmy, in which they refer to her as "actor's wife."

Sigh.


Understandably, many people are not impressed with this the decision. Given all of her accomplishments and the context of the tweet, isn't she a little bit more than a someone married to an actor?
