A So-Called Objective Journalist

On Wednesday I published a post titled Tony Blair Defends Us.

Until I read this post at NRO's Media Blog, I didn't even notice Al-Reuters' language.

Here is what I missed (in bold):

LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Tony Blair launched a withering attack on Thursday on what he called "mad anti-Americanism" among European politicians.

Blair, U.S. President George W. Bush's closest ally in the so-called war on terror, said the world urgently needs the United States to help tackle the globe's most pressing problems.
The War On Terror should only be "so-called" if we can also say that Islam is a "so-called" "religion of peace" (which it most OBVIOUSLY is NOT).

Apparently the reporters at Al-Reuters need a little lesson in reality. How about we send them off to Iran. They can try to report the "so-called" truth there and see what happens to those who don't do as the regime says.

We are fighting a GLOBAL WAR ON TERROR. It will not be over any time soon, so the MSM better figure this out. The terrorists will not be stopped by a few invites to tea parties at the UN. We must terminate them, as my grandfather wisely says, with extreme prejudice.
