Those Nasty Hateful Sexist Homophobic Fascist Right Wing Posts in the Comments...Hired Trolls

Folkenflik reveals that these paid commenters use a wide range of deceptive tactics to hide their true identities... The right-wing agenda being pushed by these paid commenters, hired by Fox and other sources, doesn’t just include tax breaks for the rich and the myth of corporate person-hood. It includes racism, sexism, homophobia, hatred of the poor and much more...

It would be really nice if every information source did the same thing. Let's note for the record that nearly all conservative sites censor differing opinions from their comments.
