A Rose By Any Other Name...

Pity the poor BBC, so an attempt to avoid inflaming jihadist sensibilities, the BBC, following the lead of Reuters, is taking pains to avoid using the word 'terrorist' to describe those who are, well, terrorists (hat tip to the Instapundit).

I can understand their concern. After all, you never know who you might inadvertently offend. That's why, to avoid controversy, I will henceforth avoid using the word 'journalist' when speaking of BBC employees.
