"I noted from the ABC/BBC coverage that neither of the two ever used the word terrorism once in all the coverage related to his death. They used terms like (can you believe it?) "Al Quaeda front man", "insurgent leader", "Al Qaeda spokeman". It was like the two were reading off the same script.
On the other hand, the Middle East Specialist from the China Academy of Social Science made no bones about calling him a terrorist. On live TV! Moreover official Chinese press also referred to him as a terrorist leader in Iraq. Sad world when the Chinese Communists call a spade a spade while our own media beats about the bush in case they should offend Muslim leaders (and journalists).
