Seattle Times Newspaper's Nicole Brodeur: Online comments: Uncensored, unfiltered, untied

SEATTLE - Nicole Brodeur has written a "Column" to inform us on how sometimes people say mean things in internet forums.
Strike that, Seattle's only major daily newspaper has paid somebody to write a story to be printed and sold about the nature and form for anonymous posts on its online comments.

Whenever I read the Seattle Times "Democracy Papers" (which are very good reading) I can not help but think of the Nicole Brodeur's of the world and wonder if we are ready to think about what in a newspaper really needs "saving" for the sake of democracy.

Whatever that is, this is not it.

Have a great day,
