CBC Spinelessness, Exhibit A

CBC Watch has a discouraging example of the lengths the CBC will go to avoid calling terrorism what it is.

My favourite part was this:
Rather than calling assailants "terrorists," we can refer to them as bombers, hijackers, gunmen (if we're sure no women were in the group), militants, extremists, attackers or some other appropriate noun.
Yeah, we can't risk offending those terrorists insurgents militants heroic freedom fighters against Western oppression, now can we?
