From now on, "Meet the Censored" articles will be released in pairs. The speech debate has become so partisan that people now often cheer news that this or that person has been kicked off the Internet " this is an increasingly common reaction. When I profiled World Socialist Web Site writer Andre Damon, conservatives complained that his site wasn't representative of the censorship problem, and I was showing bias. When I profiled Irreversible Damage author Abigail Shrier, leftists argued I was carrying water for the intolerant right.
I don't particularly care whom people think I'm carrying water for, but in the effort to keep eyes on the ball, I'm going to release these stories in matched sets: one on the right, one on the left, one conservative, one not, etc. The first two such pieces, coming out today, will feature the non-profit investigative outfit U.S. Right to Know, and well-known conservative reporter Paul Sperry.
