7/7/09: The Power and Problems of Language
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – NPR's Ombudsmen Alicia Shepard has been slammed with comments and e-mails after she explained in a blog post why NPR has decided not to use the word "torture" to describe the interrogation method known as waterboarding. Tuesday on RadioWest it's your turn to sound off on the subject. Shepard and others will join Doug to talk about the words we use in the issues we cover - the power and problems with language.
