76. What Gupta did was worse than getting a fact wrong.
What he did was attack someone who was being critical of the status quo over details when he himself was completely lacking details. This is the kind of mind bending assraping of the truth that is worthy of Ronald Reagan or Bush. Disagreement is one thing, but trying to assassinate the credibility of Moore by using lies is despicable, and that's just what he is despicable.
