Many liberals are cowards- many oppose free speech, many support the freedom doctrine governing talk radio and they don't like to be criticized.
The Las Vegas Sun newspaper, a very liberal newspaper, which cannot even deliver it's own newspaper- they have to rely on the conservative newspaper- the Las Vegas Review Journal to deliver the paper (which in reality mirrors real life) is afraid of reader's comments.
Oh no, they do allow comment on most news stories, but when it comes to editorials, they don't allow comments.
Brian Greenspun the head coward (editor) of the Las Vegas Sun will not allow people to comment on his editorials on line. Why and what is he afraid of? He allows people to spout their opinions on news articles and he allows other people who are mentioned in the articles, rightfully or wrongfully, to be criticized. But he won't allow criticism of himself.
Liberals claim they are for the freedom of expression, for themselves, but time and time again, they really don't like people to offer different views.
So, Brian Greenspun, stop being a coward and let people comment on your editorials. What are you afraid of?
