CNN has retracted a tweet reporting on the Tel Aviv terror attack and placing the word “terrorists” in scare quotes after facing public outcry on social media.
A previous – now removed – tweet appeared to call into question the Tel Aviv attack as an act of terrorism. It undoubtedly was.

Responses to CNN’s original tweet were … not kind.
Look at CNN’s ghastly reporting: ‘Two “terrorists” have been captured’ — putting “terrorist” in quotes. Disgusting. https://t.co/7qK6b5yj2r

Four people were killed in Tel Aviv when a pair of gunmen opened fire upon a marketplace. The shooters were captured by Israeli police and were identified as Palestinian terrorists.
