“By her own admission she benefited from Affirmative Action, thus the tirade based upon her personal biases instead of the Constitution. She is wrong on this issue.”

“Your biased political comment is irrelevant and has no place in this discussion.This is about one soldier who according to other soldiers who were there, not what you are I think, disserted his fellow soldiers and several died trying to find him. This is what this is about, not who started a war or who continues it.”

“It is amazing to me that HuffPost employs so many people just to watch every thing that Fox does across the US in the hope of finding some kind of negative issue. And they actually employ so called "college graduates" to do this!”

HearMeNow1959 on May 19, 2014 at 16:27:49

“They got the story from someone on Mediaite who probably found it on a twitter feed somewhere. You lend waaaaay too much importance to FOX Spews by insinuating that HuffPost has "so many people", even "so-called college graduates" hanging on their every word. It only takes one person to see it.”

“The advent of Social Media, i.e., publications like HuffPost and AOL as a prime example, are actually dangerous forums. Instead of promoting healthy free speech, it provides a forum for vitriolic comments and pseudo intellectuals to stoke the flames of their own prejudices most often purely based on their own political biases.And then to be "rewarded" with things like badges simply because they are more fervent in imposing their opinions on others. Social Media is out of control and in many cases creates a feeding frenzy that is not always warranted or fair.”

“I say to you, what I say to everyone else. A: the first amendment does not protect you from the disapproval of those who disagree with what you say. Having the legal right to speak your mind doesn't mean that others lose their right to use their speech to vilify or condemn you. Only fools think free speech means a forum where I can't be reprimanded.”

Reed Black on May 11, 2014 at 13:37:15

“NAILED IT!!!!

You summed up how I've felt about all of this (hyper news and social media) for a long time. And yes there is this sense of imposition of ideas taking place and if you don't fall in line or agree with them, you will be publicly vilified for it. I've learned to ignore the majority of it and I'm ignoring more and more. Funny, I keep threatening not to come to this site anymore but... here I am. The irony.”

“Mike by making yourself the judge and jury your biases create the hatred you think others "deserve" Actually Mike that makes you part of the problem because your animosity towards others is exactly what you preceive of them. You are part of the problem and if you disagree withsomeone who you have no personal relationship with then you are just as much the problem if not more so. That is a big part of what is wrong with social media, it fosters hatred and anger in apublic forum against people we don't really even know who are totally unconnected to our personal live..

“One thing that you can always count on is that most of the responders on HuffPost regardless of the subject will be negative and nasty. This forum brings them out and lets them spew their venom while remaining faceless behind a keyboard.”

“I watched her speak carefully and like others I have no proof either way. However I just get a strong feeling that she is guilty,, and this was before the pictures which seem to be of her. People who use drugs don't always have the most coherent motives either.”

“Ok, let's look at it from an actual math standpoint. Everyone has certain functions they need to do each week, working, unless you are retired, shopping cleaning, etc etc.
Assume, and I am being generous, that you have 8 hours available to punch the keyboard every day 7 days a week. That totals out to 56 hours. During this time this person has written 406 comments or one written comment on HuffPost every 8 minutes 8 hours a day 7 days a week for 4 years. And if you are a normal person you probably do not have more than 4 hours a day to go on here. That means she "lives" on here making a comment every 4 minutes for four hours every day for 4 years. And spouting off her biased viewpoints, and they are biased as opposed to factual, whether or not I agree with any or some of her pontifications.
A person can hit themselves every four minutes too, but I find it unbelievable that someone like this gets a premier comment position from HuffPost based on the flood of comments she makes that no one can conceivably justify as valid. I still contend this person has no life unless pounding a keyboard every four minutes and contriving some really outrageous comments and getting an atta girl from HuffPost counts. This is an aberration what social media should be if not properly controlled by sites such as HuffPost and does not reflect meaningful intercourse.”
