They're Terrorist Not Activists

Reader comment on item: [Beslan Atrocity:] They're Terrorists - Not Activists

Submitted by Lisa MIchelson (United States), Sep 7, 2004 at 13:29

If we're fighting a "War on Terrorism" it would appear we have no enemy since they are all "militants", "freedom fighers", "attackers", "activists", etc. It baffles the mind that we are at war with terrorists yet our, and the world's, media are more concerned about being politically correct than winning this war and naming our enemy for who and what they are. Even FOX News, which is a more middle of the road bent than the vast majority of our mainstream media rarely uses the word "terrorist".
