  1. Joey C, removing comments that violate our Terms of Service or disabling comments on a story are not examples of censorship. This is a service we provide to our users and is one we have no obligation to provide. We have final decisions on the content that appears on our website. The First Amendment doesn't state that media companies must provide a forum for users to debate stories. You are more than welcome to start your own blog to post your opinions on whatever topics you want if you are unhappy here.

  2. MYKEL2012, users can posts opinions and commentary but not as fact. Facts are presented in our articles. If there are facts in a story that you think are missing, by all means either contact the reporter directly, or send them to newstips(at)nwi.com if the story is a staff report.

  3. Voice of Truth, we only disable comments on individual articles. That was what I was referring to, not all articles. We encourage users to comment and debate on the news of the day, but not post hateful, racist rhetoric, unsubstantiated rumor and personal attacks. We encourage users not to engage with aggressive users, aka "trolls."

  6. TheRaccoon,

    No comments have been removed from this story.

    Larrytate's comments have remained because they do not violate policy and other users have questioned the meaning of the user's comment.

    Thank you.
