"Pirate" affiliation concealed

The MSM has provided a fair amount of coverage today of the "pirate" attempt to hijack a cruise ship off the coast of Somalia. But most, if not all, of the MSM outlets have refused to identify the "pirates" [and their leader Mohamed Abdi Hassan] as Islamic terrorists.  "Pirate" has joined "bomber," "militant," "insurgent," and "freedom fighter" as a euphemism for "Islamic terrorist."  With useless media coverage like this, is it any wonder that the Paris riots have taken so many westerners by surprise?See Debbie Schlussel and the Cassandra Page for details.
