    recast

    Hello ;

    The line is from the documentary "End of America";

    9. Recast criticism as espionage and dissent as treason

    What I understand from the line above the word recast is used as a synonym for "redine redefine" but when I looked up in the online dictionaries , in none of them it was a synonym for recast.

    So is my interpretation correct? And if it is not , what does the word recast mean here?

    Thanks for your answers in advance.

    I assume you meant "redefine". It is an interesting use of the word, but it is not incorrect. The author is suggesting that the terms are more than being redefined, they are are being replaced with new characters (as in a play).

    See here: recast - definition of recast by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
