What I find very aggravating is that the internet media companies have essentially gotten themselves a “get out of jail free” card from the US government in that the law specifically exempts them from liability if they publish material which is incorrect, inflammatory, or even incites illegal behavior, despite the fact that not only are they providing a platform for these people to spout this garbage, they are profiting from it. In my eyes providing a means of distributing all of this garbage is just as bad, if not worse, than the actual message itself.

    anonymity makes the whole situation even worse. Once upon a time even letters to the editor of the local paper wouldn’t be published unless the writers identified themselves.
