Radio Host Gets Waterboarded

A familiar story: conservative radio "shock jock" Eric Muller said he would undergo waterboarding on air in order to prove to his listeners the interrogation technique is not torture. A paramedic was on hand, but Muller only lasted about six seconds before he threw the toy cow he was holding as an emergency signal to stop. "It is way worse than I thought it would be, and that's no joke,"Mancow said. "It is such an odd feeling to have water poured down your nose with your head back...It was instantaneous...and I don't want to say this: absolutely torture."
