WaPo has published a nice eulogy to ‘Mr. Bagdadi’: Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48
WaPo made a big change in the title after the publication. Initially, it correctly called al-Baghdadi extremist leader. Then it replaced extremist leader with austere religious scholar.
Compare this with how WaPo described Prof. Jordan Peterson: “Jordan Peterson barked the question at us through a perma-squint, like a character in a Western. Peterson does this sort of thing a lot. The “brusque dad” shtick is very much a part of his appeal.“
