SHOCK!!! NATIONAL CATHOLIC REPORTER SUSPENDS COMMENTS AND NEWSMAN BILL TAMMEUS BLASTS 'DISGUSTING UNCIVIL DISCOURSE' HERE @ TKC!!!
Bill Tammeus is a Kansas City newspaper legend with a distinguished and award-winning career. Sadly, he doesn't allow comments on the blog he runs in the aftermath of leaving the local Dead Tree Media outlet.
Firstly . . . Regarding Bishop Finn's least favorite Internets publication . . .
BILL TAMMEUS REPORTS HIS ENDORSEMENT OF SUSPENDED COMMENTS OVER AT THE NATIONAL CATHOLIC REPORTER!!!
From NCR, for which Mr. Tammeus now writes:
Comments that have appeared on the website in recent days have been vile and demeaning. We could no longer support hosting a Web feature that allows such despicable comments to appear, and that is why we ordered the suspension of that feature."
And then Bill Tammeus gives TKC a shout-out of sorts: Our disgusting uncivil discourse . . .
"Some websites, of course, choose to allow readers to say just about anything. The local site, Tony's Kansas City, is one of those, and you can find exactly the sort of disgusting comments there that drove NCR to suspend comments."
Of course, libel, hate speech, posting people's addresses, threats and (our most despised) SPAM ain't free speech but according to the Internets Communication Decency Act . . . For now, that's on you.
Actually, we appreciate the nod from Bill Tammeus and it reminds us . . .
TKC REMAINS DEDICATED TO SERVING AS KANSAS CITY'S LAST REMAINING FREE SPEECH ZONE!!!
Seriously, go say something nasty about another blog's author and watch how quickly it disappears, whereas TKC has outlasted, out-blogged and championed free speech in all its nasty forms for more than a minute.
While one media outlet after the next seems scared of what you d-bags are gonna write . . . TKC knows that most of you douches are bonkers with some insightful insider comments that make the whole circus worthwhile and essential if there is any hope for our rapidly vanishing Democracy that would rather silence voters and residents than deal with the reality of the discourse and the society it reflects.
