Readers of my blog may recall CBC’s Kady O’Malley siccing her Twitter-dogs on me for allowing personal comments about her to be posted:
“Man, those commenters are pure class, huh? RT
@CBCWatch: Some more of that awesome “reporting” from CBC’s @Kady” (see here)
I read all comments and approve all comments prior in an effort to keep swear words, legal issues and overtly personal attacks out but once in a while I slip up. Sometimes it’s due to haste and other times it’s because I didn’t recognize a legal liability issue but whatever the reason, I am willing to correct and admit my mistakes to the people offended.
And since O’Malley decided to play this little game of ‘hurt-bunny’ with me, I have pointed out the personal attacks left on her blog that are not corrected let alone apologized for but today, the stakes were raised.
In O’Malley blog about the Manning Centre conference in Ottawa (see here) I noticed some nasty comments and a link to a slanderous column about Nick Kouvalis and his company Campaign Research (see pic above) hours ago which still remains posted.
Another perfect example of accountability O’Malley demands of us unpaid bloggers but won’t uphold herself. Easier when you have staff to blame and a legal fund to draw from I guess?
