Reuters busted again

Reuters correspondents continue to violate their own code of ethics while demonstrating rank hypocrisy.  In a story on the arrest by the Iranian government of members of an exiled opposition group, Reuters uses the "T"-word four times:
Iran arrests members of "terrorist" exiled group
Iran said on Tuesday it had arrested members of an exiled opposition group who had planned terrorist attacks in Tehran
The report came two days after Iran said it had arrested 13 members of an anti-revolutionary group who had carried out terrorist attacks in the Islamic state.
Iranian officials often accuse the United States, Britain and Israel of supporting terrorists.
Reuters never seems to have a problem deploying the word terrorist when referring to attacks they abhor.

It appears that attacks on Jews do not fall into that category.
