FOX substitutes right-wing term in AP report

Reported by Chrish - July 13, 2008 -

Hat tip to reader Adam for noticing FOXNews.com's substitution of the phrase "homicide bomber" in an AP story on the suicide bombing in Afghanistan this Sunday 7/13. The politically correct right-wing term was repeatedly used on numerous FOX-affiliated websites but the original, seen here and here, never used the right-wing term. It is not uncommon for outlets to make edits to an AP story but it often telling when they do.
