GOP Blogger: Kos Loves Censorship!
You and I know that's baloney, but a third-string Minnesota conservablogger pitched that line to the StarTribune:
During the 2004 election campaign Kos and some of his liberal blogger friends organized a boycott of the Sinclair advertisers over a Sinclair decision to run a John Kerry documentary that Kos and the left thought was unfair. Seems to me that this was a direct attack on freedom of the press, and a blatant attempt to control the media.Since when is fighting slander and lies "censorship"? Sinclair's ownership, despite the pleas from its employees and others, persisted in showing a thoroughly discredited anti-Kerry piece, wrongly presented as an unbiased "documentary", that was filled with lies and slanders. Kos and others fought to prevent this from happening. Write the Strib at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them not to cave to conservatives. No matter how loudly they shout, their shouting doesn't make them right.
