    •  Honestly, that doesn't matter (6+ / 0-)

      That actually kinda sounds like an "Everybody does it" defense.  We should absolutely take the higher ground.

      •  Don't know if it happened (0+ / 0-)

        but I would think that on this site such a comment would have been HR'd into oblivion.
        A "News" organization has editorial control, however. We're just a bunch of random idiots on the Internet  posting what ever foolishness comes into our fevered, socialist heads. There's a difference.

      •  i agree (0+ / 0-)

        i merely mean that the voluntary rape shield agreements were put in place by newspapers and network television and we are neither.

        of course we should take the higher ground at dK and I was surprised to see the tweets reproduced with her name shown, even to make the point the diary was making.
