    Interesting...

    I read the article, and the author sounded like she could be a fellow USMB poster complaining about neg rep.

    It's no secret that people are being paid by the hour to propagandize...oops.. I mean blog.

    but people are always told to write letters to the editor, too.

    Let me get this right? You have no problem with Obama allowing his people to manipulate the American people with false letters to the editor around the Country? BUT do have a problem with INDIVIDUALS running their own private websites? Anyone else need anymore proof of just how stupid Jillian is?

    Or a USMB poster whining about being busted and caught:

    Quick! Deflect! Deflect! Deflect!

    Oh come on, RGS. Both "sides" distribute their little form letters to the editor on their pet subjects. And both "sides" pay bloggers and forum shills to distribute their talking points. This is nothing new. Personally I don't have a problem with it. Jobs are scarce, if some kid can make a few bucks being a shill then go for it. I don't have to listen. But it's hypocrisy to say it's OK for one side and not the other.
