Jeffrey Goldberg writes a letter

Jeffrey Goldberg lets al-Reuters have it.
Those Israelis and their crazy terms! I mean, referring to a fatal bombing of civilians as a "terrorist attack"? Who are they kidding? Everyone knows that a fatal bombing of Israeli civilians should be referred to as a "teachable moment." Or as a "venting of certain frustrations." Or as "an understandable reaction to Jewish perfidy." Or perhaps as "a very special episode of 'Cheers.'" Anything but "a terrorist attack." I suppose Reuters will mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11 by referring to the attacks as "an exercise in urban renewal."

The mind reels.
I don't think it's a whole lot different than some of the newspeak that the Obama administration has introduced (like not using the words "Islamic" and "terrorism" within 25 words of each other).
