Moslem Arab grabs a security guard's gun in Jerusalem, shoots him with it, and is killed in the gunfight. Let's take a look at the headlines:
New York Times initial headline: "Terrorist Killed and 10 People Hurt in Jerusalem Gunfight"
Apparently another editor sees it, changes headline to "Gunman Dies After Fight With Guards in Jerusalem". The articles are identical, only the headline has changed, omitting the word terrorist, we suppose because according to the New York Times stylebook a Moslem on a rampage, especially one intent on murdering non-Moslems, can't be called a terrorist.
Still, Steven Erlanger did a good job with the article (journalists don't choose the headline, editors do).
It's also interesting to examine the headline compared to those produced by other news sites.
Voice of America: "Shooting in Jerusalem's Old City Kills One, Injures 10" Headline offers no indication that the one shot was the terrorist.
or how about this beauty from the BBC: "Palestinian killed in Jerusalem". Someone just glancing at the headline would reach precisely the opposite conclusion from the real story.
