I recently saw a post on a tv reporter’s Facebook page, that was talking about a current news story. There were a few people who commented on the story, then when I went to talk about the story, the reporter said that she deleted my comment, saying that it may offend her viewers. That is bull. She went on saying I was generalizing, and that my comment was not an opinion. I have views, just like everyone else. I have a right to free speech, just like everyone else. What is even worse she is going against my constitutional rights, refusing to let me air my views on her Facebook page. What the nerve to do something like that. I then continued the conversation through private message. I went on to tell her, that she apparently was not aware that all stories might start a debate, which my intentions on her Facebook page was to not start one. She replied that she was fully aware of her responsibilities as a journalist is. She told me about her 7 years of experience as a journalist, and about her many viewers that followed her throughout the years. This has nothing to do with threatening to take away my freedom of speech. She has to be aware that some viewers might feel offended, and I’m sorry if it does, but it is life.
And that is how I see it.
