Looking For A Cave With Internet Access

A week or whatever ago, CNN had a little question on its little website. The question they put out to their viewers was: How much air time should we give to Ralph Nader now that he has announced he is running for the presidency? As you can imagine, I was more than a little put off by that question. Not because I really have anything against Ralph Nader. He's Pat Paulsen without the funny. I was angry because, by announcing that he was running for president, they had already given him more air time than they had given to Ron Paul. So, I left a comment on CNN's site to that effect. There were many other comments from other posters saying basically the same thing I did. I checked back the next day to see how many comments the article received.

All the comments that mentioned Ron Paul had been deleted.

No, I'm not kidding. All of them. Color me pissed. I know you don't care, but I'm still voting for him. Especially since I can't muster up anything past antipathy for any of the others running.

Edit: Sam found the site, and it seems at least some of the comments are back. Mine isn't there, which is odd. I wasn't caustic or anything, so that's odd.

Ralph Nader is no Pat Paulsen!!!

That's true. Which is why I said: "He's Pat Paulsen without the funny."

They're back? Maybe? I found several Ron Paul comments on the Nader airtime article.

Not that I want to defend CNN...


And is it just me, or did commenting here just get harder?
