One could do a full-time study on the way the LSM manipulates language to suit its agenda, all while outwardly pretending to be objective. Note, for example, the way they always put quotation marks around partial-bitrh abortion, or do something else to make it clear that it's not an official term used by the medical industry. Yet they uncritically accept the highly vague and inflammatory term "assault weapons", despite the fact that it's not used at all by weapons experts, and has no clear meaning whatsoever.
