Writing at Politico, Rich Lowry examines the euphemisms in the President's speech at Planned Parenthood and in the coverage of the trial of Dr. Gosnell. And, he calls out the NYTimes for not being willing to use the word baby in describing children who have been born and, therefore, no longer correctly called fetuses. (No word yet on whether or not Lowry heard the voice of God telling him to call out the Times.) Lowry does not use the word "Orwellian" but I will.
