Time to do something about bullying at blogs
This country claims to care about the little guy. It says it cares about equality and tolerance. Yet it allows the bullying treatment of commenters—some of the most vulnerable and powerless people in our society—to run rampant at blogs such as this one. Shouldn’t something be done? See the exchange starting here in the entry on New Jersey’s “Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights.”
To make this easier to follow, I’ll copy the exchange here:
Ron C. writes:UPDATE, 10:17 p.m.: Is VFR on the cutting edge of societal evolution or what? A half hour after posting this entry I came upon a story published tonight at Newsbusters entitled: “Journalists Warned in NYT: Beware of Conservative Bloggers Targeting You.” It seems that bloggers are actually reporting true, damaging facts about mainstream journalists that are getting the journalists in trouble, and the Times, to which we all look for leadership on matters of right and wrong, is duly alarmed by this bullying, unfair treatment of such a vulnerable, powerless segment of our society. Shouldn’t something be done?
