You might notice some of the euphemisms news organizations use in describing certain issues and practices.

The Wall Street Journal has a section called Risk & Compliance Journal. Likewise, the New York Times covers white collar crime. Another news organization uses a different term for the issue, even in its own name: Corporate Crime Reporter.

Russell Mokhiber, the editor of the newsletter/website, wrote a recent column called Call Corporate Crime Corporate Crime, because so many organizations--even outside the news business--will not.

We get a visit from the editor to talk about the reluctance to call bad corporate behavior what it is.
