  •  Weeding the Blog Garden? (0+ / 0-)

    While there is a good deal of astroturf out there in the fertile blogosphere I think we need to rethink how best to prevent paid consultants trying to market themselves as honest contributors. Protecting the open discussion of candidates, issues, and positions between the citizenry of the blogosphere is our first concern. We don't need the Koch Brothers paying for propaganda blogs to support their candidates with fake praise. But how best to weed out the astroturf is still far from determined thanks to technology.
