Article in British Journalism Review about the New York Times’ New Torture Policy

I have an article just out in British Journalism Review, “Let’s Call a Crime by its Real Name”, scrutinizing the New York Times’ new editorial policy on use of the word “torture” when referring to US interrogation policy. Here’s a link: http://www.bjr.org.uk/data/2014/no4_stone.

Obviously this is a topical subject, in light of the Senate’s release of its Torture Report last week, and I’ll be following up with some more media criticism on this blog (including a look at how the Times and other outlets are deploying the t-word).

Stay tuned!
