  •  You will NEVER rid this place (4.00)
    of enough trolls... caustic commentary... fights... or angry quotes to take out of context enough for people like Peggy Noonan, Fox News, and the Wall Street Journal to give this place a fair shake.

    It is not going to happen.  

    They can troll here if they want. In fact, they would just make things up if they didn't have quotes to take out of context. If Sean Hannity wants red meat on the Daily Kos he could just sign up for a Kos account himself, or have a staffer do it, troll venomously, then go cut and paste his own trolling back on his website, and say 'here, see, its a hate site!'.

    The civility game is a racket.

    The DailyKos is never going to be anything but a 'bubbling cauldron of hate', or 'a leftwing hatesite', or whatever smear that comes next to the echochamber. The sooner you realize that the civility game is a fraud, the better.

    •  And by the way (4.00)
      why the heck should I give a damn if Peggy 'Magic Dolphins' Noonan approves of my community, my politics, or my party?

      She is an intellectually dishonest smear merchant who used her piece on Ronald Reagan's funeral to settle old personal scores and grudges by smearing people who didn't like her in the White House back in the day.

      You don't get much lower than that.

      •  You should care. (none)
        We should treat those who cover us equally.  Insist on accuracy.  Insist on links, at least in the online versions.  Both of those things are extremely easy to come by due to the nature of the medium.

        I don't care if they are singing our praises or villifying us, they need to get it right. Journalists or mere pundits, it is their job to be as accurate as possible.  

        We must never lose it, or sell it, or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.
