Ugly Political Correctness

Michelle Malkin notes the strange prudishness of the New York Times:
"Take a look at how this front-page New York Times article describes the perpetrators of the siege in Beslan. Notice anything? The killers are called 'guerrillas' and 'fighters' and 'armed captors' but not 'terrorists.' At one point the article grudgingly refers to these savage murderers as 'people that Mr. Putin calls terrorists.' In more than 1,750 words, the article includes not one reference to the religion of the Muslim perpetrators. Not one."

No comment is really necessary.
