In contrast, I'm reminded of the Fox News policy about 15 years ago of referring to suicide bombers as "homicide bombers," which made no sense. The apparent theory was that the term suicide ignored the fact that they killing innocent people while blowing themselves up.

The Unabomber was a homicide bomber. He tried to kill people with explosives, but had no intention of blowing himself up in the process. Suicide bombers are even scarier because they use themselves to detonate explosives in areas where a remotely detonated device might not succeed.
Suicide bomber for a person who has English as a second or more language means the primary causality is the bomber, so that one i do get since English is my fourth language. It makes the person who is taking lives seem a victim too.
Ap basically is the authority in words, so we will soon see the term alt-right used less and less, which i do understand and accept. People clearly have been disregarding the phenomenon because alt-right sounds as dangerous as kitten petters.
