• Poor Shep Smith Is Horrified About The “Torture” Debate

    There’s been an awful lot of media commentary about the ongoing debate over torture, but rarely have I been so worried for a man as Shep Smith.

    The spiffy news anchor seemed like he was about to cry over the whole thing, right there on the Fox News Deck.

    That all these years later, we’re sitting around and debating whether torturing, that was okay, is sad and horrifying,” lamented Shep. “We got the information before we tortured these people … we can’t go to Spain now. Spanish judges are going to want to bring us up on war crimes charges. We can’t move around the world now … is there going to come a time where we can just look and go, ‘We did bad things, we shouldn’t have done those bad things’? … It was Ronald Reagan who said we’re a shining city on a hill. We’re America. We don’t torture.”

    So hardened terrorist killers are simply “these people” now? Way to use President Reagan to try and score a political point there, Shep.

    If we really want to talk about torture, let’s begin by discussing the torture American television viewers face regularly when they see a Fox News anchor wearing guyliner.
