BBC, playing PC with terrorism

Well, leave it up to the BBC to go completely out of their way to not offend the terrorists. It turns out, that those that purpetrated the 7/7 attacks in London weren't "terrorists," only "bombers." Feel better?

The BBC has re-edited some of its coverage of the London Underground and bus bombings to avoid labelling 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”.

No wonder that the British Royal Navy preferred not show the BBC reports to their crews during the Iraq invasion.
