Where the New York Times and Washington Post Fail

The Daily Dish | By Andrew Sullivan

As Andrew points out the WP and NYT will not used the word "torture". He asks:

Does anyone believe that if Iran, say, captured an American soldier, kept him awake for eleven days straight, bashed his head and body against plywood walls with a towel around his neck, forced him to stand and sit in stress positions finessed by the Communist Chinese, stuck him in a dark coffin for hours, and then waterboarded him, that the NYT would describe him as a victim of 'harsh interrogation techniques'?
