Do you want fries with that hypocrisy?

The same DailyKos that said: America, Iraq, Iran: Where Is The Press More Free?, which said, among other things:

With the muzzling of American soldiers and the censorship of the reporters in Iraq, this would have been a bad day for the media were it not for Iran's demonstration of liberty for the press.

(The same Iran that, say, bans coed Internet Cafes?)

The same DailyKos that worries: Will Bush Still Deny Trolling and Data Mining????

Under these pretenses that Daily Kos suggested yesterday: Videotape everything they do
Every appearance by a top Republican official or candidate should be recorded. Every one of them.

I can't imagine a more Orwellian thought, a more disturbing violation of one's privacy, or a more hypocritical mentality.

It is no wonder, then, that as Daily Gut writes,
in the digital age, some executives and commentators are saying they will respond only by e-mail, which allows them to post the entire exchange if they feel they have been misrepresented, truncated or otherwise disrespected. And some go further, saying, You want to know what I think? Read my blog.

And Instapundit notes that "electronic communication" is increasingly "making interviews obsolete."

And it is also no wonder that, as one disguest Kos writer put it him/herself:

I was excited at first about joining democraticunderground, because I initially thought it was a web community where social progressives could engage in lively informative debates. What I thought would be an inclusive forum for airing differing points of view turned out to be anything but. I soon learned that democraticunderground was an intoleratant breeding ground of hate, with biased moderators and meanspirited posters whose tactics were just as bad, (if not worse), than those used by the Republicans they claimed to so despise.

You just have to laugh at the cherry-picked talking points, positions, and principles so commonly bent, broken and bandied about by such sad individuals.
