Waging a PR War at Guantanamonew

I'd volunteered to spend the night in the replica cell (which is modeled on the ones at Gitmo) because we've all heard stories about unlivable conditions at Gitmo but can't come close to imagining what it must be like.

Kids in secret prisons. Chinese intelligence officers invited to torture at Gitmo. Why is the American media covering up these horror stories?
