Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, I would guess that the UK media of the time didn't want to use "RAF" because the initial conflict with some other organisation that they mention now and then. As for why pick on Baader and Meinhof, somehow they must have been the most "media-genic" of the first wave. Don't know why tho...
