CAMERA Obtains NPR Correction on 'Terror' Terminology

CAMERA prompted the following National Public Radio correction on a report which quoted Israeli officials as having referred to “militants” when they in fact spoke about “terrorists.”

Error (NPR, “Morning Edition,” Paul Brown, 4/1/04): Israeli troops have arrested 12 men they say were wanted militants who had taken cover in a Bethlehem psychiatric hospital. Israeli security sources say the men were planning suicide attacks in Israel.

Correction (4/26/04): First, a correction of a term that was used in a newscast earlier this month. Israeli military officials were quoted as saying they had arrested 12 men who were “wanted militants.” But the actual phrase used by the Israeli military was “wanted terrorists.”
