The Deets is Consistent on Waterboarding Being Torture

Taylor pointed to a Tweet by Jay Rosen where he dropped this interesting nugget about the NY Times coverage of our government’s waterboarding behavior:

From the 1930s to 1999 the New York Times described waterboarding as torture 81% of the time; from 2002 to 08, 1.4% (pdf) http://jr.ly/znv7

A quick look through the archives of TheDeets.com shows that I’ve discussed waterboarding twice on this site. In both cases, it was done so in a way that associated the tactic with torture.

The Deets: Consistently against torture.
