OMG! Obama Czar Wishes You'd Be a Little Less Incendiary All the Time
this story is equally creepy as this request
This is too funny. First of all, I'm not changing my fucking title because some asshat from the Obama administration wants me to counter my statements with opposing viewpoints. Secondly, if opposing viewpoints would like to appear on my website, they can pay up to Google AdWords to get high ass placement on conservative blogs and hope to show up when I go off on a political rant. It's really a win-win, they get their message out to those who do not agree and I get my rent paid. Who cares? Until that day comes, Cass Sunstein can pretty much kiss my ass and no, I'm not going to post an opposing viewpoint on that statement because I am sure you, dear reader, will agree.
He actually said this.
“The sites of one point of view agree to provide links to sites of the other point of view. So if you’re reading a conservative magazine, they would provide a link to a liberal site. And vice versa, just to make it easy for people to access to competing views.
Or maybe a popup on your screen that would show you an advertisement or maybe even a quick argument for a competing view.
If we could get voluntary arrangements in that direction, it would be great and if we can’t get voluntary arrangements maybe Congress should hold hearings about mandates.”
LMAO. If we can't get you to do it by asking nicely, we're going to make Congress have hearings about it, you fucking heathens. How dare you talk about your views on the Internet!
Again, there is already a mechanism to do this and if OMG! Obama and his little czar friend want to pony up the cash for the ads, they can start inserting anything they want on my website.
Obama also says you should read HuffPo if you watch Rush Limbaugh. I agree with that. But it's the reader's right to use their own damn fingers to type in a website or follow links that the writer has inserted to assist in the point (s)he is trying to make.
I've actually been saying this forever, it will rot your brain if you stick to the same viewpoint. But who determines what the opposing viewpoint is? If I say Ben Bernanke sucks donkey balls, does that mean I have to publish love letters from his wife? What if everyone agrees that Ben Bernanke sucks donkey balls and there is no opposing viewpoint?
