Mediawatch for 15 December 2013

From Mediawatch, 8:10 am on 15 December 2013

Mediawatch talks to a journalist who's lifted the lid on the loose and lazy use of language in the media. But does it really matter as long as the meaning is clear? And why is the Oxford English Dictionary telling us not to take 'literally' too literally any more? Also: Media moguls putting up paywalls in Australia; and Nelson Mandela himself said he was no saint - but the media took no notice. Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.
