More on the NPR torture debate

More on the is-waterboarding-torture? debate at NPR: It seems NPR ombudsdman Alicia Shepard, who Nprtargetlogo has been defending the network's refusal to label waterboarding as torture, refused to appear on a radio show with Salon's Glenn Greenwald, who disagrees. An NPR spokesman said Shepard declined because "she didn't want to get into a shouting match." Refusing to do radio interviews is an odd thing for a radio executive to do, seems to me, and Blogasm's Simon Owens -- who has the entire story -- seems to agree.
