Rightwing thought-control - 'Massive Censorship Of Digg Uncovered'

Freedom, my ass. 

The right-wing wants you to do the dance of liberty in lockstep after unidirectional Vulcan mind-meld where you're told what to think by a goon squad of social network control-freaks.

It's too late to have seen the report of an investigation by oleoleolson, the Senior News Editor and Chief New Media Strategist for News Junkie Post,  to do it justice, but it deserves much more than I have said.  


At least oleoleolson put the key excerpt up front, the second paragraph in this quote. 

A group of influential conservative members of the behemoth social media site Digg.com have just been caught red-handed in a widespread  campaign of censorship, having multiple accounts, upvote padding, and deliberately trying to ban progressives. An undercover investigation has exposed this effort, which has been in action for more than one year.

“The more liberal stories that were buried the better chance conservative stories have to get to the front page. I’ll continue to bury their submissions until they change their ways and become conservatives.”
-phoenixtx (aka vrayz)

After reading the entire thing (it's long and well-done) I commend the author.  Gigabytes of evidence captured to harddrive cannot be erased even if the forum used by the conservative goons has been deleted!

These are the sort of people who want to run your country, don't let them. Go to Alternet and read "Massive Censorship of Digg Uncovered" to see how the control freaks think in those precious unguarded moments that tell so much truth..

When social choices are made by majorities, the rightwing cannot win a vote without cheating.  Remember that ePluribusMedia researchers found the late Bush technology guru, Mike Connell, inside of the Florida Department of State and the Ohio Secretary of State IT networks during the elections of 2000 and 2004, respectively.

Mr. Connell would not have been there by coincidence.

Bettverboten: ” “I agree, no matter what the content..


JeremiahLaments: ““If anomaly, Novenator or any of the usual suspects subbed a story claiming “sky blue/water wet,” I’d BURY IT without question.


Bettverboten: “I will always bury them. Do we let them manipulate into gaining their positions back on digg with lots of FP soft/fluff stories then they sub a super liberal piece of crap and that goes FP too. We have to think this through….. what power we want them to have?”
