    Your title is worthy of Fox News. From the article you linked:

    Honestly Gainzo, I don't care if a democrat or a pubbie says it, but let's call it what it was. If it was terrorism, then call it terrorism. And it was terrorism.

    Let's not get all sensitive about calling something what it is.

    The fact that the story is only being reported by right wing sites, and they're not providing the specific context tells me it's simply another report by the right-wing distortion machine. Let's remember that surveys show Fox News watchers are less informed than almost anyone else, so they're easy to fool. I suggest you find another source that gives more details and repost.

    Let's find out who wrote the letter and exactly what they wrote and for what reason. A competent journalistic organization would have provided that information as a matter of course.

    Right, and the Liberal MSM is so much better. If this was a republican saying this then it would be all over the news. Ohhh its fox news that doesnt count. If Fox News doesnt count as news then neither does MSNBC, CNN, ABC, etc...

    You really buy this story? You think this is the Obama administration? Why not ask to see the letter, the text, and find out who the author is? Don't you even think it's odd that none of those details were provided? For all we know, it may well be a technical classification that does not exclude terrorism but merely creates eligibility for workplace violence programs for victims and their families. I have no idea, but given that only the right wing is playing it up and leaving out all sorts of details suggests something is amiss.

    It's so disgusting I don't think the Left Wing Sites want anything to do with it, it's embarrassing for them.

    That's not my point. When that happens, please post an example. Actually, though, I think the more liberal MSM has higher journalistic standards than Fox, though it's by no means perfect.

    Popularity is measure of entertainment value, nothing else. Rihanna has the number one song. Why do you think that is?

    The policy of the administration has been to avoid the use of the word terrorism, This is just the most recent example.

    In the hate crimes thread, many people were saying that murder is murder.

    Who cares whether it's "workplace violence" or "terrorism"? Murder is murder, remember?

    Well some dems prefer to use terrorist or terrorism to describe the tea party in favor other words to describe the tea party for example. The description is thrown around pretty recklessly by a lot of people.

    chicowalker, I'm starting to notice that you like to call out the right for not recognizing that they are just as guilty(and justifiably so) of whatever they are indicting the left for but I can't recall you doing the same for when the left is guilty. Am I wrong?

    Terrorism identifies the killings as part of a war being conducted by Islamist against Western democracies the USA in particular.

    What are called hate crimes are criminal acts not connected to a particular ideology or political movement.

    except when they describe the tea party....to be fair though they really want to avoid the use of the words "islamic terrorist" so as to not indict Islam
