NPR's Cheryl Corley reports that The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) today fired a senior editor for publishing an article seen as an intrusion into politics rather than medicine. The article involved a survey of college students about their definition of what constitutes sex. The article, being published in next week's issue of the journal, comes at a time when President Clinton is undergoing an impeachment trial that involves, among other things, the president's definition of what constitutes sex.
