A Different Standard

Steve Inskeep conducted an interview with Dr. Steven Miles this morning the way a journalist should conduct an interview: he questioned his guest's premises, he challenged assertions, and he requested evidence. In this case the guest was a critic of US torture policies and practices--especially the failure of doctors in uniform to expose the US torture of detainees.
Compare this interview to any interview of US policy apologists on Morning Edition; I've never heard the pro-military/pro-US policy folks subjected to such rigorous demands for proof. Fortunately Dr. Miles was informed and prepared with irrefutable evidence.
