"We have built the web to connect to ourselves, and it’s not designed to filter any demons out of our minds."

There is buried network of spurious arguments underneath all the comfortable hatred of incivility, here.
There is an assumption that the web is supposed to be a force for good, and only good. Who says? And secondly, that those that use the web are in some way a collective entity, a global society with shared beliefs, including various democratic ideals. These unstated assertions are deeply and profoundly wrong, but taken as a given in anti-web circles. -- Another Lesson About Cognition And The Web: Lara Logan And Hate | Stowe Boyd

Your Say

An aside: There is an odd juxtaposition of two events at 60 Minutes in the past week; the rape of Lara Logan, and the molestation of Senator Scott Brown as a child. Both were acts of perverted evil, but one will be held up for the world to see, while the other is played down by this sub rosa organ of democrat party propaganda. There is a lesson in this somewhere.

The Left and the Media are appalled that the sanctity of the "Holy Press" was not honored and held as inviolate. The Talking Heads running away, Anderson Cooper hiding in an 'undisclosed location' while he changed his shorts.

How can this be? Are they not the stalwart warriors of the '70's trenches, fire hardened believers in all Proggy spume.

Ahhh, only when it's focused on the right; now I see.
