Telegraph | News | BBC edits out the word terrorist

Conclusions aren’t necessarily inaccurate just because they evoke strong emotions. The terrorists are understood well enough–they seek the obliteration of western civilization by means of fear and cruelty.

Telegraph | News | BBC edits out the word terrorist: “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.”
