Outrage Of The Week!!!!

The BBC has re-edited some of its coverage of the London Underground and bus bombings to avoid labeling the perpetrators as "terrorists", it was disclosed yesterday.

Early reporting of the attacks on the BBC's website spoke of terrorists but the same coverage was changed to describe the attackers simply as "bombers".

The BBC's guidelines state that its credibility is undermined by the "careless use of words which carry emotional or value judgments".

Consequently, "the word 'terrorist' itself can be a barrier rather than an aid to understanding" and its use should be "avoided", the guidelines say.

Political correctness is going to be the death of us. These clowns have no problem referring to the IRA as terrorists. Who are they worried about offending? What else would you call someone who kills innocent women and children?

I agree with you, Pat, 100% on this. What even makes me more angry is "homicide bombers". This makes no sense at all. Any bomber who kills another person is a homicide bomber. A suicide bomber is one who takes his/her own life in the act. It's all gone too far! Call it what it is ... in the harshest terms possible. Maybe someone will wake up!

Control the information, control the masses.

Now the real question. Who is being controled by the information, me or you?

I'll submit; neither of us. Only those who think CBSbs, NBCbs, ABCbs, CNNbs, FOXbs, et al are "non partisan" entitlements. Only those who do nothing to steward freedom, yet cry when it is gone...
