Getting it from both sides . . .

People like me get upset when fails to moderate offensive comments.

Right wing, birther nut jobs get upset when they do. From an AP article about a bill in Hawaii concerning providing President Obama's birth certificate to doubters:

Is it my imagination, or did a whole bunch of posts suddenly disappear into the event horizon of a black hole?

Oh yes, the TP, in the spirit of surpressing information which has been the hallmark of America's press for decades, regularly censors comments that don't follow the ideology of editor, Yale graduate and Skull & Bones member Jim Amos.
Even with's moderation on this article, there is all kinds of craziness posted about Obama hiding his birth certificate because it would prove that he is a Muslim. I am not sure if this is "offensive" enough to justify removal and, in any event, it passes as news on Fox, so it is probably fair game in the comments?
