Today on Your Call: How should progressives redefine a winning message?






On today's Your Call, we'll speak with Anat Shenker-Osorio, author of "Don't Buy It: The Trouble with Talking Nonsense." She explores how wrong-headed metaphors and deceptive language have muddled our thinking on everything from the economy and the environment to abortion and immigration. She argues that better word choice alone can win the debate. If you're active in getting your message out, what actually works? And most importantly, what does it mean to win? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
