Vox Explores Changes In Health, Science Language Under Trump Administration

Vox: The disturbing new language of science under Trump, explained
“…Language is undoubtedly suffering in the Trump era, particularly the language of health and science. … Some of these changes in language are top-down, and they’re meant to shake up priorities, rebrand old ideas, or obfuscate truths. But other moves are happening from the bottom up, as people working inside scientific agencies try to protect their programs from funding cuts and from their new ideological leaders…” (Belluz/Irfan, 1/30).
