An interesting comparison.
Read this stream of comments, responding to a rather tepid claim I made about Rove's right to speak, and an audience's right to hear.
Then, read this post, and the comments that follow it. Then this follow-up, and comments.
1. The internet has become a place where a lot of people are sure they know things that they don't know.
2. Then they feel entitled, even obliged, to act on that knowledge.
None of this discourse is very enlightening. But to see such a weak, everyday argument (people should get to listen, interruptions aren't that big a problem) attacked with such vitriol from both sides.... Interesting.
