The NY Times makes a funny about torture

Black comedy gold from the NY Times. “U.S. Engaged in Torture After 9/11, Review Concludes.

Gee! D’ya think? Certainly reporting on the report in itself is legitimate and mad props to the folks put together the report itself, but this bit really is fucking hilarious:

News organizations have wrestled with whether to label the brutal methods unequivocally as torture in the face of some government officials’ claims that they were not.

For you kids at home, that’s how the pros do it.

Here’s a trip down memory lane with regard to the Times “wrestling” with how to characterize “brutal methods.” (Hint: Turns out it’s torture when someone else does it. When we do it, not so much.) Stick to Real Estate Porn and Ivy League Aspirational Masturbation you half-witted wankers masquerading as the newspaper of record.
