The Beeb Discovers Terror

Just noticed the word “terror” appeared twice on the BBC’s Mideast page. Whoda thought?

More on the Heathrow terror arrests and Abu Hamza’s terror charge.

Spotting the T-word at the Beeb is a lot like bird-watching — you see a lot of interesting things, but patience rewards you with rare birds.

So whether you’re looking for “terror” at the Beeb or a particular snipe in Israel, enjoy it while you can. While the BBC doesn’t have an axe to grind with snipes, its editorial guidelines frown on the T-word.
