The Media MetaNarrative Making Torture A Topic Open For "Debate"

There's a new blog in town called Home of the Brave.


There's a really insightful post up on there discussing the mass media spin that's trying to turn torture into a "debatable"[1] topic.

Framing The Admission of Torturing as a Debate: The “Free” Press Propaganda Campaign

Well worth the read.

[1]Which of course it isn't, whether torture is ok or not is as "debatable" as whether child molestation is ok or not.

Feel free, since I don't have a blogroll I hope you won't mind if I don't return the favor though.
