Huffington Post Censoring Posts - MAKE VIRAL
Please make this viral!

I have made two posts that have been censored in the thread about the new oil spill, both in a similar vein. Censored. Which is odd, considering this is a site that railed on Palin for sensoring her Facebook responses to have only positive reviews.

Here is one of the posts that was censored:

"Huffington Post - a quick look in the mirror. I truly enjoy your site and see its value, but the move towards this kind of news aggregatio­n has all but killed investigat­ive journalism­. If you look at my previous post, I "broke" the story of the four enterprise drilling ships in the area on of all places a fantasy football message board on Feb. 1. Meanwhile, the mainstream journalist­s of the world were all over generating content about Charlie Sheen and top ten funniest road signs, etc. Anyone paying attention could have asked some pressing questions.­.. Which begs, why is no one one paying attention?­! Huffington­/AOL - stop consolidat­ing news to the point of strangulat­ion of investigat­ive journalism­, which takes investment and possible alienation of hands that feed."

It's a message board. They have something like 650 posts - from the public. I'm registered and tied to my Facebook and Twitter pages. They've decided not to include posts that are critical of the site - odd from a site founded on "progressive" journalism.

My suggestion would be stick to breaking the facts and leave the criticism for after the government is overthrown.

The point is, there has been suspicious ship activity within 20 miles of the Deepwater Horizon for over two months! Where is the press?

Even the "community moderators" openly admit they censor often based on not liking or agreeing with something.

And so what? It's their play pen.

My greater point is that focus on creation of "journalists" who make petty wages to create "10 Funniest Subway Video" content comes at the expense of people patiently following leads, asking questions and developing stories. I move that it has been obvious that there has been something very odd going on, just based on ship activity, and yet not one question asked... Not one story written... It's even a source of debate whether a leak exists at all when there's a 100X25 mile sheen. What has happened to this country?

Not my intent. I'm just deeply disappointed that a site founded with the best intentions to carry the torch of progressive journalism, and that is openly critical of Palin for censoring critical forum contents, sells to AOL and promptly censors politely written criticism about its role in opacity in major stories breaking.

"progressive" journalism requires that you support the "progressive" narrative. If you don't ... well.... look at Juan Williams.

Well that's a pretty chilling comment, AC (though kudos for the hilarious pen name!). Huffpo is - or at least was - a brilliantly conceived electronic town square where people from all over the world can come and freely share ideas (and/or vent, which is fine too!), and you say 'so what?' that a few strutting martinets are now blocking - not just trolls and flamers, as thy should - but any opinions they don't happen to agree with in this little fiefdom of theirs! Sound familiar?! In fact I and several friends/colleagues decided to close our accounts for that very reason.

Sorry, wasn't paying proper attention. I now see that 'Anonymous Coward' is the default screen name, DUH!. Maybe because one's chosen one (like that's usually any less anonymous!) gets erased when you preview, as just happened to me.
