Anyone else noticing that comments that refer to the poor journalistic investigating style of ADN i.e. Moore an opinion columnist was better have been removed?And these two comments from Shannyn Moore's short story on this at The Mudlfats today:
I wrote a comment this morning over on the Anchorage Daily News’ article about the resignation. I wrote that it was amazing the convolutions the ADN went through to try to bump Shannyn up from a columnist to one of their reporters “breaking this story last week”. Also, the last comment a few minutes ago was someone observing that all the posts about Shannyn being a columnist, etc. had been removed. I looked for my comment and it was gone. So, I went to hit reply to this post about the disappearing posts, and could not see a “reply” buttom. Well, now I have a big yellow notice that I am now blocked from posting comments on the site. I just picked another story at random, same yellow blocking notice. Is this a violation of my freedom of speech? I really do dislike the Anchorage Daily News. Choosing the color yellow for these notices is priceless. Nice work Shannyn.And:
This has happened to me also. Only regret is the possible range of readership. ADN has become such a disappointment. Also sorry to hear that the Juneau Empire is going for paid e-news. Generally the coverage of State Government is pitiful. I sincerely hope some of our dedicated bloggers will be able to pick up the slack. I read Alaska Dispatch daily and get lots more well produced news than anywhere else. Most often they scoop all the other outlets. I do believe Shannyn should be credited with breaking this particular story. The power of the press does still live!!! Thanx all. nI'm not sure why this is being played the way it is at the ADN. Anyone have any clues?
