The use of the airwaves to advocate a war crime is itself a war crime

NPR Check

I have to hand it to NPR’s ombudsman, Alicia Shepard, when she posts on her blog, she really knows how to put ugly out there. This was manifest in her June21, 2009 defense of not calling torture torture and her similarly enhanced defense of the same on June 30, 2009. If you’ve not read Glenn Greenwald’s critique of Shepard on this matter, it is well worth the read.

Maybe if everytime someone advocated war crimes over the air waves we filed a formal complaint with the FCC it would have an impact.
