Comments on: Audience and media: Can this marriage be saved? Dean Wright on Ethics, Innovation and Values Sun, 08 Apr 2012 05:10:49 +0000 hourly 1 By: thevoiceoflogic Mon, 27 Feb 2012 14:14:34 +0000 I just left and changed my home page because I couldn’t stand being forced to go through FB to comment. Now, I just posted a comment on this site and got your message about censorship. Censorship is censorship not matter how you try to dress it up. And censorship is subject to ones opinion, that being the censors. Therefore, someone from your organization is telling the public what is acceptable to read and what is not. That is bias not matter how you look at it. It is subject to the opinion and interpretation of another. I agree that I read some pretty ignorant or angry, venting comments that I consider worthless. But after reading about 2 or 3, I move on. But that is according to my standards and what I consider to be of value. I can’t force that on someone else because it is my view. But you have taken away the power and control of the individual to determine for themselves what is of value and interesting and what is not and put it in the hands of those it shouldn’t be in. I think that this is a bad idea and that we have enough liberties being taken from us at record speed these days. The last thing we need is an open forum to become a censored one regardless of who likes what. I will stay with this site temporarily to see what you do about this. If I am not satisfied, I will move on. I still have the freedom to do that!

Whatever happens to newspapers,magazines and weekly circulations to this world,as long as freedom of expression,fair reporting of present events and some valid criticism on vital subjects are permanent thinking to us.
I think that, both dailies,weekly,monthly journals and news on line will continue for ever.
We will wait and see,what happens in next technical,media revolutions.
So many months,many years to stay,watch and to explore on many media changes.,

Lower case good, I tend to follow the German website protocol of using caps for some words within a sentence, it is difficult to judge what to do though. Submissions should limited to a number of words as some get too long, which prejudices other submissions and financial outcomes. Word checks should be done in local dialect.

I don’t get what is so wrong with the media. We choose where we participate. Reuter’s standards have improved greatly since the time I started getting involved. Without being forward and backward at the same time, Reuters is touching on the Diamond Age of Journalism.

I like the World View idea, see, there I go again. I must confess I grapple with the leptocurtotic distribution of news and emphasis. I found a work-around though, basically I start reading and looking at the symbols and pictures from East to West, when I wake up, starting at Japan and ending at Canada, very appropriate, so in My World, the US is fast asleep. (That equals 17 pages followed by US in depth reading and maybe blogging). It is a great way to start the day and learning these languages.
