    The Facebook Post Palin Doesn't Want Us to See

    The Facebook posts Palin doesn't want you to see. - By John Dickerson - Slate Magazine

    Many of the comments that are filtered I could understand why, but they also filter out supporters comments that don't completely agree with her.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Someone at Slate has PDS something fierce.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    No offense to you, John, but what a crappy article. Really. Every politician does it. Why do people keep singling her out? I'm beginning to think it's simply because she's an attractive woman. Hell, Hillary looked like a guy half the time she campaigned.

    I thought it was an interesting article and, arguably, it wasn't actually critical of Palin. They addressed why they chose her -- no other politician that they know of or could find deleted nearly as many comments as Palin's people have. Obama - 1%. Palin - 10%. The Palin camp has been extremely vigorous in their attempt to market her, so you can whine about people singling her out, but it's because nobody else pushes for that kind of (or that much) exposure.

    Again, the article wasn't very critical at all, but I could see somebody saying that Slate is pointing out that marketing yourself as a (future) candidate of the people while ensuring that 1/10th of the comments made to her are deleted is hypocritical. But that criticism certainly seems fair, doesn't it?

    I did not claim you did. I simply tried to make a humorous observation on some one who made a post about Palin, calling some one who made a post on Plain PDS.

    What would have been much more effective was to point out that all the article shows is that Palin has moderators, what's the big deal? That would be a good point and much more effective at countering the OP. It has the advantage of being 100 % true.

    I was trying to imply the Author of the Article was stretching for a story on Palin dear.

    Totally agree Hilary ain't a looker and just because of her style, well honestly I never really liked her. However, I think you should read the article, I will agree it has a bit of a left tilt to it but it is very fair to her, and above all it feels for her supporters over her detractors for sure.
