On 60 Minutes last night, during the interview of Marine Sergeant Frank Wuterich,  staffer Scott Pelley Kept referring to the incident at Haditha, Iraq, where a couple dozen civilians died , as a "massacre."

According to the Merriam Webster dictionary here is the definition of the word "massacre:"

Main Entry:
Pronunciation: 'ma-si-k&r
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle French
1 : the act or an instance of killing a number of usually helpless or unresisting human beings under circumstances of atrocity or cruelty
2 : a cruel or wanton murder

According to the dictionary a massacre is a pre-planned event.

Maybe Pelley is ignorant of the definition of that word but I doubt it.  He is a professional media journalist so it is fair to say he knows exactly what it means, and he knows it WAS NOT a massacre.  Why then did he keep repeating that word?  Sensationist journalism, that's why.  Never mind how damaging the story might be to Wuterich , the Marines, and our country, a sensational story was the objective and the facts be damned.  Shameful !!!!!
