Reuters is useless


Clearly and carefully, in words that even Reuters can understand, an editorial in The Ottawa Citizen defines terrorism.  In so doing not only do they counter Reuters' absurd claim that militant is a more neutral word than terrorism but demonstrate that the m word is bogged down with its own connotations.

But the real reason Reuters is so circumspect ultimately slithers out——they want to protect their reporters from the terrorists, appease their terrorist sources.  Thus Reuters has ceased as an objective news reporting agency, it has descended instead into a propaganda organ.  Nothing wrong with that but the deception renders Reuters useless. But that has been the case for quite awhile.
