"HOMICIDE BOMBER" IS REPETITIOUSLY REDUNDANT

BY CINCINNATUS

Anyone else tired of the horribly redundant term "homicide bombers" that Fox News insists on using to refer to suicide bombers? "Homicide bomber" could refer to just about any person or persons who blow something up in order to murder someone, regardless of whether they kill themselves or not. "Suicide bomber" is a much more apt term, as it describes the means by which the bombing, which is obviously intended to kill people, is carried out. It's an obnoxious example of pseudo-conservative Newspeak that grates me with its utter uselessness.
