Reader reaction to Reuters news
Israeli Troops Given the Go-Ahead to Kill Peaceful Palestinian Protesters
Your name is supposed to have credibility. After letting this blog posting appear I believer you have severly damaged your reputation. It is hateful and inaccurate, which begs me to ask why it is being posted on your site?
I find it totally deplorable that you would lend your credibility to such a ridiculous, shameful and heinous piece of propaganda. Is there no process of review or editing before you publish posts to the blogs hosted on your site?
We use an automated “widget” that pulls in text from related blogs not published by Reuters, as a service to readers seeking a variety of views on the news. There is a disclaimer at the top of the page saying, “The following blog post is from an independent writer and is not connected with Reuters News. The opinions and views expressed herein are those of the author and are not endorsed by Reuters.com.”
No such program is perfect, and there is precedent for our removing some blogs that we don’t believe are constructive in tone. We removed this post yesterday. This is analogous to the way in which we handle some reader comments, as well. GBU Editor
