VOX POPULI; THE GREAT FALLS TRIBUNE BLOCKS COMMENTS ON MAHONEY MURDER SUICIDE


Upon reading through the article submitted by Fred Schwartz not too long ago I noticed that the comments for every srticle in the Great falls Tribune were visible at the bottom of the page save for the two that dealt with the murder of Shelley Mahoney and the suicide of Donald Mahoney. View for yourself here:

School counseling article.

Police rule deaths murder suicide.

As Ombudsman here at The Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork and on my honor as a Thoeressamt I promise that we will never do this. If there is such great concern that details surrounding the homicide will come to light then the management of the newspaper should have just chosen not to cover the story. To muzzle the public in this way and then censor what has been said is a journalistic travesty. I hope this is a “web page glitch.”

    We’re just the blog that kicked the hornet’s nest this morning aren’t we?

    Madame Editorial Page Editrix:
    I will be the first to trumpet the resolution of this by the great falls trib if this is a mere technical matter. However, all the other links terminate in a comments zone save for the ones about this couple’s murder suicide. To me as a professional observer and a solicitor in Hell I find this a bit more than coincidental. this tragedy is compounded by censorship whatever its intended goals.

    A thousand thanks upon you Consiglieri as I had totally missed that the GF Tribune was playing both sides of the “family’s wishes” “if it bleeds it leads” fence.

    And no change to the GF Tribune website nearly 14 hours later. This is nothing more than censorship.

    Consiglieri,

    This wasn’t an error on their part at all. The newspaper of record here has done what it had to do to plaster over the blood and brains that were exposed in a fdamily that appeared to be the polar opposite of what it was. Shame on them. As many have said to me in the past day if the Great Falls Tribune wanted to sweep this under the carpet they should have never run the story.
