The Palastinian Hotel was attacked by TERRORISTS in Baghdad killing at least 20 people. Many of the hotel guests are western journalists?

Will the ever so helpful media start refering to those killers as "Terrorists" now, ..or does anybody suppose that they still ought to be called, "Freedom fighter's", as SOME of the media generally does to incite a form of twisted sympathy for them? ;)

What do some of the more inclined; "liberal" whacko's think?

I recall them calling them "insurgents". And they are insurgents though they are also terrorists. The term means absolutely nothing.

I also note that you seem quite pleased that people have died. Seems that you don't care who dies as long as they further your political "cause".

I also ponder what you would have the media report if you were in charge?

Number one, ..I do not enjoy the thought of anybody being murdered, ..not even naive' ideological liberals who seem to think that terrorists need to be "understood", or that they have real grievances against America that justify their behavior!

Number two, ..the answer to your last question is even easier, "The g-damn truth";) would be a good place to start, as well as the non-sensical personal editorializing that loves to find "conspiracy" in everything that is of non-liberal origin!

What would you call the group that bombed a news organization after they were specifically given the GPS coordinates in order to prevent such a thing from happening?

hmm. . .sounds familiar. Did anyone else spot the flaw in this statement?

Btw where do you get your news stu? just out of curiosity.
