Conservatives Digg Censorship

A group of influential conservative members of the behemoth social media site have just been caught red-handed in a widespread campaign of censorship, having multiple accounts, upvote padding, and deliberately trying to ban progressives. An undercover investigation has exposed this effort, which has been in action for more than one year.

“The more liberal stories that were buried the better chance conservative stories have to get to the front page. I’ll continue to bury their submissions until they change their ways and become conservatives.”

    What a shock...

    But really, in the end, is it so hard to simply understand there is such a thing as bias, and it's up to us to see through the agendas of others? Yes, there is such a thing as reality, but you won't find it recreated faithfully by most people. Reality is least likely to be achieved through consensus, especially in a format as elitist as the internet (about 25% of households still have no internet at all).

    You know who faithfully reproduces reality? Great artists. Can you imagine how few of them we have in America? I'm guessing less than a handful, and none of them live in Hollywood.
