Faced with the unbounded id of anonymous readers who can’t resist posting nasty comments under online articles, some news sites are taking steps to rein in the verbal bile. And some, tired of the mess that occurs when free speech gets a little too free, are ending reader comments altogether.
Yeah, this is a typical WaPo lefty hack. You just gotta watch out for when free speech gets “too free.”
The First Amendment was only intended to protect speech that everybody approves of.
(I know, the First isn’t involved in this specific situation, but the gang of lefties at WaPo would certainly like to see those liberties infringed when their enemies try to exercise them).
Check out my new bestseller, Lightning Fall: A Novel of Disaster. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit.com says: “Bill Quick has authored a terrific thriller that is also an all too plausible warning. Highly recommended!” Available in Kindle e-book or trade paperback formats.
