From the UK Sun

BARMY BBC bosses have banned reporters from calling tyrant Saddam Hussein a former dictator.
Instead, staff must refer to the barbaric mass murderer as â€œthe deposed former Presidentâ€�.
The astonishing edict was seized on by MPs last night as more proof of a Left-wing bias inside the BBC against the Iraqi war.
Labour MP Kevan Jones, of the Commons Defence Select Committee, said: â€œThis shows the crass naivety of the BBC. Such political correctness will be deeply hurtful to many of our servicemen serving in Iraq."
