A spade still a spade

Reader comment on item: Swiss Minarets and European Islam
in response to reader comment: attitudes finally coming around in Finland?

Terve Vääräuskoinen,
The comment we are speaking about was found at the 'Discussion' ('Keskustelu') section of the net version, not in the paper. There, in spite of obviously careful editing the debates sometimes become quite heated. A spade is called a spade.
Hey, how about checking the health of our newspapers at the Tundra Tabloids site. You will find the Editor ('KGS') to be friendly and cooperative. (http://tundratabloid.blogspot.com/). My expertise, sad to confess, is rather haphazard, yet I would claim I've never heard of any news media hesitating to use words like islamist terrorist in appropriate context.
However, you are correct if you presume we are going towards uncertain times.
