If you’re using the link plugin for TinyMCE to add links to content and want to get rid of the target attribute options then the trick is to set target_list to false in the editor’s configuration:-

    selector: "textarea",
    plugins: "link",
    menubar: "insert",
    toolbar: "link",
    target_list: false

Do not, I repeat, do not hack the plugin’s code as a number of people seem to be suggesting out there. That is never a good idea!
