We all know CBC moderates comments. Most media outlets will. We do at The Rebel, we may be free speechers but there are people that say things that can get us sued, they spew profanity, they can do all kinds of things. So we moderate, every media outlet does.
So why on earth is CBC doing a story on the Conservative Party moderating comments on their social media feeds, other than the obvious answer - to make the Conservatives look bad.
While the Tories, the NDP and the Liberals all have active Instagram feeds, Meg Sinclair, a spokeswoman for Facebook Canada, said Harper's account is the only one that has launched ads to date.
Many of the early comments on the sponsored posts were critical of Harper and his government's policies. Those comments have since disappeared.
Who the hell cares on than CBC? This is only about showing the Conservatives in a bad light.
Try this out, go to CBC's site and leave rude and profane comments and see if they stay up or are deleted. Then drop me a line in the comments to let me know what happens.
