An adendum to the Foreman Barber nonsense

Other than to their own choirs, the claim the Foreman "admitted" that HIV was a gay disease is really not a blessed news item for the anti-gay industry.

But there was something that I wanted to briefly mention about it.

I noticed how all of the right-wing press releases are saying that Foreman's statements "left people in shock" or "stunned gay activists."

That is not true. Please notice how these folks are using hyperbole to further their agenda.

As far as I know, no one was left stunned or speechless by Foreman's comments.

I guess to Barber and company, hyperbole beats out truth. And I am sure that they will knowingly use the same deceptive language when mistating Foreman's comments in the future.

Just wanted to make that short comment there.
