Terrorist, a forbidden jargon when you are writing about the Norway terrorist Breivik

Perhaps terrorist is a prohibited jargon when you are writing about the Norway terrorist Anders Behring Breivik whose trial began on Monday for killing 77 people last July. He killed eight people by detonating a bomb in Oslo and a further 69 during a shooting spree at political youth camp on nearby Utoya island.

Here are sample headlines in the major American, British, Australian and New Zealand newspapers/news networks on the first and second day trial of the Norway terrorist which gives credence to my argument:

           The U. S. Media
