YAEL: INTERNETS FREE SPEECH IS KILLING DAISY AND NOT DEAD TREE MEDIA SPIN!!!
Kansas City Star Columnist Yael Abouhalkah is taking a bold stand but comment usually aren't allowed to challenge his opinion.
So here's a snippet:
Social media are helping kill Daisy Coleman
"It would be better for all if Daisy and Melinda, her mom, were able to completely shut out social media, just to make the temptation go away to pay any attention to it at all."
- Never mind that Dead Tree Media drugged up the story of this mom & daughter duo that was mostly dismissed by everybody else because of clearly erratic behavior from the adult in the situation.
- And just like we said . . . The mom's hateful online comments directed at Internets denizens pushing forward her cause has been scrubbed from this story.
- Also, it would be really good for the newspaper if everybody just got offline.
This really isn't such a horrible column but it does ignore the complicity of Dead Tree Media in bringing an unstable pair into the limelight and then blaming the consequences of this decision on the Internets instead of taking any responsibility in creating the media storm over allegations from a teen girl who now admittedly has a problem with drug abuse and her guardian who seems very quick to lash out online.
