The jihad isn't terrorism

Now that we've seen a madman plowing a truck into people exiting a mosque, the media has to stop treating everyone the same -- as terrorists -- or we won’t know what’s taking place!

Would it even make sense now to wait for "official word" if a mass death is an act of terrorism? That word terrorism no longer works as a substitute for the jihad.

How can you be accurate about jihadis and the muslim jihad if you call every mass murderer a terrorist? That sure isn’t right, even a journalist can see that.

Surely this recent guy with a truck isn’t a jihadi, right? It’s time to call killers killers. Stop calling murderers gunmen, which demeans guns and men (with a misandrist sexist term). Get back to the business of using language with precision. The journalism Code of Ethics requires it.
