some disturbing videos

Turkish journalists under fire. See here for the rest of the story.

This FOX clip appears to be going viral. Watch it and draw your own conclusions about whether anyone is being censored.

Notice that the FOX host started stuttering a bit after the "2000 were killed" claim. No doubt it created a real dilemma for FOX given the following:

The torching of houses in these villages is in some ways a result of the massive Russia propaganda machine which constantly repeats claims of genocide and exaggerates the casualties. That is then used to justify retribution.
- Anna Neistat of Human Rights Watch
