ABC and BBC Recognize Terror. Is CBC Next?

HonestReporting.com reports on the continuing debate over using the word "terror" in reporting on the Middle East.

In April, an independent panel issued a report calling on the British Broadcasting Corporation to label acts of terror as "terrorism". And on May 23, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s News Director John Cameron also admitted that Hamas, Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad are all terror organizations.

Will other media outlets now feel more comfortable labelling acts of terror as "terrorism"?

Hmm. ABC and BBC. Who could be next?
