Misrepresentation and False Information

Reader comment on item: Those Danish Cartoons and Me

Submitted by Aidan Maconachy (Canada), Feb 23, 2006 at 00:11

The type of misrepresentation described by Dr Pipes is difficult to control.

In the case of the internet, comments are often taken out of context, magnified or distorted in order to make a case. There isn't much you can do about this when information is so readily available and not subjected to checks and balances. On the internet a person can use any alias to say anything, and such mischief making simply can't be controlled.

I think the body of comment coming from a given writer/pundit speaks for itself. While some may try to distort individual comments, any discerning reader can see the truth of the situation.
