Color me shocked. Every 10,000 years or so, a glimmer of sense pops out of the media cesspool that is FoxNews. The other day, during a debate about the US using torture techniques on detainees (incredible that we even have to debate this, isn’t it?), Shepard Smith absolutely loses it during the discussion and earns his network a hefty fine in the process.
Good for Shep. It’s pretty obvious that he feels pretty strongly on the issue, and, although it’s a pipe dream that the wingers will take it to heart, it’s actually the most succinct arguement one could make on the issue of “enhanced interrogation techniques” (man, I hate that phrase). However, in this era of “hope,” my own hope is that a few people who see this (it’s pretty much guaranteed to go viral) wake up and realize that at the end of the day, they’re still Americans and that partisan politics have led them to a very dark place, indeed.
