Because Diction Is Power.

NPR & Greg Myre, I am most assuredly disappointed that a normally enlightened media outlet & its employees would bandy about words with such disregard to the effects they cause. I am referring to today’s phrase, “Vladimir Putin’s Bipolar Year.” As one who lives with the condition everyday, I am both offended and further stigmatized by such usage of the word. I am surprised that anyone, writers and editors both, would be so glib about a mental illness so serious as this.
