MyDD's little censoring problem

It all started here.

A diary about Obama "campaigning" in Florida, against previous agreements.

It continued here, with kid oakland doing the leg-work Jerome SHOULD have done before writing his idiotic screed against Obama.

K.O. Made the rec list as he tends to do, then minutes later POOF!

It was no longer on the list.

When asked specifically why k.o.'s diary was no longer on the list, Jerome had the following to say.

Because he violated the guildlines here. You can make a practice of personal attacks on other blogs, but not here. If you don't like that, find another blog.

Can anyone realistically read kid's diary and find anything resembling a personal attack?

Jerome has fallen quite far, and he's taking MyDD along with him. Baseless smears, disingenuous attacks, and then CENSORING someone who called him out on his bullshit.

It's just sad. Kid Oakland did the leg work, double checked a story looking for the TRUTH, and then was censored for it.

Good on Kid for trying to get to the truth and holding EVERYONE to the standards of truth and accuracy.

And a hearty thumbs down to Jerome for his actions this primary season, culminating in today's actions.

Just to be clear. I don't support Obama, OR Clinton. I don't hate Jerome or MyDD. And I'm not trying to start some stupid cross-blog war. I just think that if we're going to be critical of the Traditional Media, then we'd damn well better be careful with our research and admit to mistakes. Mistakes happen, I'm not demanding perfection. I AM, however, demanding honesty and integrity.

And Just to be even clearer, I posted this on DailyKos yesterday.  I didn't post it on MyDD yesterday because I had already posted a diary that day.

And to be so damn clear I'm transparent: This goes beyond which candidate you support. Jerome's FP post was factually misleading, and he tried to cover that up with flimsy rationalizations and suppressing a recommended diary. We should ALL stand against such bullshit, as we routinely call out Traditional Media for such things. Shame on you, Jerome.

Re: MyDD's little censoring problem

Everyone should feel free to recommend this diary, because if it happens to get on the list, Jerome will simply remove it from there.

Can't have anyone pointing out his fuck-ups, now can we?

Re: MyDD's little censoring problem

Yeah, it'd suck to have a diary showing MyDD's owner's bullshit for all to see, wouldn't it.

You should totally email jerome and tell him he'd better hustle on over here and suppress this diary, too.

Re: MyDD's little censoring problem

First off, kos being fair or not has NO bearing on Jerome's actions. So, stay on topic if you possibly can.

Or keep throwing up non sequiturs, if it pleases you.

I notice you haven't addressed my points in the diary. I'm certain THAT'S deliberate.

And frankly, YES kos has been fair. He's given it to BOTH candidate based on their actions, and when proven wrong he's ADMITTED it.

Unlike Jerome.

But that doesn't fit into your "Kos is evil because he hates hillary" feelings, so I doubt you'll respond to this with anything resembling logic or intelligence.

Re: These same Jackasses

I think we all understand that. Why don't YOU try and explain exactly how the Dkos algorithms work. OK?

Then try and explain this....

I have watched diaries on Kos, I have wathed the numbers. When a pro Hillary or anti Obama diary makes it to the rec list, it dies quickly even tho it may have huge rec'd and comments. It will be replaced by a diary that is not much newer and has a lot less rec'd and comments... but it is a hit Hillary or pro Obama diary.

There is a lot more traffic and diaries at Dkos, so it is harder to see, but it is real.

Re: MyDD's little censoring problem

To be fair, this diary does constitute a personal attack, while Kid Oakland's didn't. So if this gets blasted of the rec list, I wouldn't hold it against Jerome.

However, I rec'd this diary because Jerome ought to be called out on this, and he ought to see how many of us feel this way. He can do what he wants with it, but the message needed to be sent.

Stop Whining

I see jerome's point.  K.O. could have made the same points in a rebuttal diary without attacking jerome the way he did.  Demanding an apology and a re-titling of a diary?  Come on, I have seen pro-Obama bloggers lob the word "fuck" or some derivative at pro-Hillary diarists today about 3 or 4 times, in a repulsively angry and disturbing way, for no good reason.  I'd like to demand that those assholes be banned from posting anything but what can you do.

Please, stop whining and just keep writing factual diaries.  No need to make it personal.  If you don't like it here for whatever reason, I'm sure you can find a zillion other places to post.

Re: Stop Whining

Asking for a retraction and a change of title is somehow a personal attack?

That is, frankly, bullshit.

If Jerome is so freakin' sensitive that asking for a retraction of a MISLEADING and DISINGENUOUS Front Page post is a personal attack, then he should probably transfer ownership of this blog to someone who's not as delicate as he.

Can you put aside your candidate support for a second and see that Jerome's actions were ridicuclous?

If not, ask yourself how you'd feel if it were Kos who wrote an anti-Clinton diary that was as fact-free as Jerome's hit piece on Obama was.

You call that an 'attack'? If someone writes a factually inaccurate diary, it should be corrected, at the very least so that it doesn't mislead others.

When I first registered here, I did so to rebutt a factually incorrect diary. Of course, it was ignored (along with the other people who did the same), so I guess we should have expected Jerome to do what he did - MyDD doesn't seem to have much experience with admitting mistakes.

Come on, I have seen pro-Obama bloggers lob the word "fuck" or some derivative at pro-Hillary diarists today about 3 or 4 times, in a repulsively angry and disturbing way, for no good reason.  I'd like to demand that those assholes be banned from posting anything but what can you do.

I have seen pro-Clinton bloggers make blatant racist, ethnic, or otherwise discriminatory smears against Obama. The difference is that those bloggers you reference most likely ended up on the hidden comments list, while the bloggers I refer to often made it onto the top of the recommended list here.

Hehe.

I'm really not trying to start a blog battle.

My main beef is that we, as liberal bloggers, routinely take the traditional media to task for sloppy reporting and bullshit.

Here we have Jerome not only being sloppy, but being extremely dishonest with his rationalizations AND with him removing a recommended diary from the list SOLELY because it called him out on his bullshit.

Re: MyDD's little censoring problem

To clarify mistake that bothers me most is not that Jerome misleading suggested that Obama spent $1.3 mil in Florida, but rather that he attempted to hide evidence that this claim was less than straightforward.

When I saw the $1.3 mil claim it stuck me as likely specious so I tried to visit the site he linked it to.  Either the link was bad or server was down.  I forgot about but later read about Kid Oakland's research into the matter on DK.  

It seems clear to me that Kid Oakland's post was merely a respectful attempt to show that $1.3 mil figure needed to be put in proper context.  He does good research (puts in more effort than I would have been willing to), and he doesn't do any name calling.  That Jerome would try to hide his post frankly strikes me as a bit Nixonian.

Agreed... Let's settle this and get over it.  

I enjoy reading this blog whenever I can wade through the bullshit and get to the real substantive diaries that appear on this site.  I say that as an Obama supporter.

That said, it's okay to admit a mistake when you make one as big as the $1.3 million one you made yesterday.

Re: MyDD's little censoring problem

Milk this?

I posted it on DailyKos last night.

People there criticized me for not posting it here, not knowing I already posted my diary yesterday.

Now, I post it here because it does deal with MyDD.

Sorry if it bothers you to see certain people's actions criticized.

Funny thing is, apparently people believe it worth reading and recommending.

Message received? Funny thing is Jerome hasn't change his diary and hasn't admitted wrong doing, so apparently message NOT received. His FP post still has the same disingenuous message about Obama campaigning in Florida, and it still has the same flimsy rationalization it did yesterday.

You make sure to let me know when the message has REALLY been received, will you?

Re: MyDD's little censoring problem

haha, of course it makes sense to post it here but it's pretty convenient that you waited until it left the Rec list of kos, during which commenters essentially used the thread to just bash MyDD, to bring it over here. everything in this post has already been aired and litigated in various threads here already (granted, perhaps not to everyone's satisfaction,) the only purpose at this point is to serve as yet another vehicle to bash MyDD. hence my accusation of "milking it." forgive me for not jumping up and down at that prospect.

I mean, look at some of the things he has Front Paged.

A story from an anonymous blogger on Barack's page

Or how he conviently ignores pieces of information about how much $$$ Barack has made (note: He edited this post to sound better)

Or how he doesn't believe Barack can win any state (not as bad as the other two)

How is it censorship

if everyone can still read the diary?  It's censorship to not be on the popular list anymore?

It's called editorial prerogative. Jerome is an editor on this site.  He can edit any way he thinks is best for his readers/users.  Anyone at anytime can disagree with those choices, but it doesn't make it 'censorship.'  And if someone does not understand the difference between an editor and a dictator, please--they should ask for help so that they can understand, not accuse good people of crimes.

But there's another point that needs to be made, here.  This decision by a few zealous folks at dKos to defend KO (who needs nobody to defend him, and did not ask anyone to defend him) and to attack Jerome and by extension all of MyDD is a complete waste of time when there are urgent things happening in the world.  Please just stop. And I write that as someone who spends a great deal time and energy contributing to and participating at dKos.  

If anyone has come to the conclusion that MyDD is an enemy of democracy or is somehow undermining free society, then they need to step away from the laptop, eat something more nutritious than Funions, and maybe go outside for a walk.  Get some fresh air for goodness sakes.   Then, once the blood is circulating again, sit back down and apply that boundless energy to something that actually makes sense.

None of us would be here having these conversations where it not for this site. MyDD has done more to restore deliberative democracy in this country than anything since the rise of newspapers.  And that  fact has not changed because a diary was demoted from the rec list.

Tough skin

So I didn't read either post until I checked out this diary.

Kid Oakland's diary didn't appear to be a personal attack to me.  Sure, he did use Jerome's name, but Jerome did write the offending post.

Based on the response KO got from Ritsch, I think he was right in asking Jerome to retract the post.  Jerome did add an update at the bottom of the post, but he didn't explain its relevance.

As to Todd's claim at theblaz is milking this, I don't read kos, even when someone links to a diary there, so for me this wasn't milked.  But it seems that the mistake tbat MyDD makes here is to take a legitimate, constructive criticism put forth by KO and to try to turn it into a personal attack instead of acknowledging it, saying "mala mia" and moving on.  "My bad, sorry" is going to work for Andy Pettitte and even for Jason Giambi, but "personal attacks" sure isn't working for Roger Clemens or Barry Bonds--if you'll forgive the sports analogy.  (Bowers used to get these, I can't remember if Jonathan, Jerome, or the new FPers here do.)

I read KO's diary, and he was pretty harsh.  It's difficult not to read it as calling Jerome a liar and demanding that Jerome grovel on the frontpage of his own blog, which is far beyond what the Center for Responsive Politics memo advised.

That said, there's a kernel of truth to KO's post, and if he got overheated I don't see it as cause to censor the diary.  The accusations in other diaries on MyDD have been far worse than simply calling someone's truthfulness into question.

Even a nice, positive post can contain flawed reasoning, such as Hillary deserving support simply because young girls want to believe they can be president too.  That logic implies Ann Coulter would be worthy of support if she were running.

One of those young girls will become president someday, and it will have nothing to do with Hillary Clinton's primary loss in 2008.  Which oddsmakers now have at 80%.

How exactly does one point that out?

Is there a salutation that is appropriate?   Is there a protocol for saying X is untrue?

I'm honestly asking... It seems pretty clear on substance that your original post was inaccurate -- to the degree that it actually drew the very conclusion your original source said should NOT be drawn.

Exactly what is the protocol for pointing that out?

There's a thing called email, it's on the contact page.

Re: MyDD's little censoring problem

Yeah - you seem like such a swell fellow.

I found this to be quite respectful.

And the times you've referred to Obama supporters as 'Moonies' and 'loons' shows a real tour de force of open dialogue and issue-oriented discussion.

You seem to be very much above all this petty squabbling, certainly not contributing to it.
