Correction: Huffington Post Didn’t Censor Link to Me, but It Did Censor a Batallion of Its Readers

By Nicholas Stix


“Huffington Post in Comment Lockdown at Story on Racist Killer Andre Turner”; and

“Huffington Post Scandal: It’s Definitely 1984-Style Censorship!”

I finally tracked down the link from the HP article on racist mass shooter Andre Turner to me. It’s not in the comments section, but in the “Around the Web” section. So, I was wrong about them censoring the link to me, but I’m still right about the site’s guardians changing the time of the post from 4:07 a.m. to 6:29 p.m., and disappearing almost 14 hours’ worth of readers’ comments.

So, I’m not quite as censored as I thought I was, but a bunch of HuffPo readers were.
