Or, why I don’t read Slate any more. I’m late to seeing this (because I don’t read Slate any more), but stumbled across their shocking revelation that someone censors comments on Sarah Palin’s Facebook page.
These daring scribes found that nearly 10% of all comments are deleted for being mean, racist, or otherwise damaging to the Palin brand.
I don’t have 2 million followers on Facebook, I have about 220. I am not a politician and those 220 people are actual, you know, friends, so there isn’t much Paul bashing on my Facebook page. But you better damn well believe I have and will delete comments that can damage my reputation, or comments that want to start an argument that I don’t want to have in public.
10% of my comments? Nope. But somewhere between 1% and 5% for sure. And I do it quickly, too.
I wonder why they didn’t do this analysis on a Democrat.
