    Yep, they shortened a journo. Junk just got real.

    Not to go belittling the tragic death at hand; rather, the double standard surrounding People Who Matter.

    Last night on ABC World News, I saw Diane Sawyer refer to ISIS as “Barbarians” ( the 1st time I’ve seen a MSM personality do so), and all I could think was – “Oh, sure, *Now* you think they’re “barbarians”…”

    Like smitty said: the double standard surrounding People Who Matter.

    And the sad fact is – most people never catch wise.
