FOXED

I've never seen such shilling for the Bush administration as I just did by Chris Wallace of FOX NEWS Sunday questioning the Amnesty Int. representative Shultz, a minister. Loaded questions, sidestepping, appeal to emotion and so on. This is not a legitmate news network. It's a jingoistic propaganda machine. What questions? It was an attack for an exaggerated "gulag" comment about documented torture. Just because not every prisoner was tortured, doesn't mean there is no significance to those who were. Trust me, the "enemies" will remember the latter.

Wallace went on to pointedly question Gordon Liddy anyway so it's a matter of an easy mark when you have one on hand. Liddy actually deserved it by comparison.

Amnesty richly deserves some attacking for the ridiculous assertion that Gitmo is a "gulag". Next, they'll be comparing to Hitler's Auschwitz. You know a Hitler reference is never far away when talking to leftists.

gulag literally is a straw man. It doesn't mean they are equal in scope, thus just hyperbole.
