Many, but certainly not all, who cry “freedom of speech” are often, it seems, those who are the first to deny others of theirs.
Wait a minute aren’t we discussing a dirt bag committing a hideous crime here? Two words for Richard Ferrell Andreas, Sr. of Bishop. “General Population”.

Wow! “Child molester HEAVEN”! incredible! What kind of person would choose such words?!… Anyone care to field a guess? Also, brilliant placement of blame… it’s the county’s fault that child molesters exist?! Again, anyone care to guess what kind of person would blame the county and not the individual for… Read more »

HA! I thought the same thing as Harry about FOS’s possible meaning. Also if the comments were being deleted when Bennett didn’t like them Mr FOS you probably wouldn’t be reading your own would you? Reeeeelax.

HaHa that was a good one. I also think Ms. Kessler does a fine job of keeping her personal opinions out of the journalism, cause I know she has them!

Well said. Many posts are not fact based but I appreciate reading them because they provide a way for those who post them to expose themselves as having no credibility.

FOS,

The full truth here is that publishing mean-spirited, non-factual, hate tinged opinions does not improve our community. Verbal bullying is no more acceptable here than it is in our neighborhoods.

Dear Al, It’s okay if you don’t like me. You’re participating in my news forum. That’s great. I have never pretended to be neutral. News reporters bring their humanity to what they report.

Into county is child molester heaven. I don’t care what the locals say. When they’re done diddling their prey we can discuss the problem. It’s a very sick county that allows the innocent to be abused.

The constitutional mandate for freedom of speech does not apply here. I still think that this would be a more civil forum if Benett would; “practice what she preaches” by not posting any comments from pseudonyms, unless, in rare circumstance the commenter posts specific pertinent information that would otherwise not… Read more »

And how would you characterize the author, “Publius”, of the Federalist Papers, which advocated passage of the Constitution? Hypocritical coward who knew nothing of the First Amendment?

One should be proud of their position and let the world know who you are. You are not participating if you hide behind a false name. That is just a cop out.

Dear Bishop Dude,
You might consider that all big TV networks are now owned by major corporations (GE owns NBC, Disney owns ABC, etc., etc.). Most would imagine that their interests are not “liberal”.

The myth of the “Liberal Media” was created by people who want to discredit any media outlet that even comes close to actual factual reporting and by that factual reporting, discredit “Facts As Needed” reporting. It’s easier to pin the label on the media and then attack the label. So… Read more »

Try doing some research on how media has addressed politicians and social issues. Remember, most all media is sponsored in one way or another by people… Read more »

“Most would imagine that [big corporate] interests are not “liberal”. Well if “most” would imagine this, they’d be wrong. “Liberal” now means “statist” in terms of industrial policy and rent-seeking and those are the facets of modern liberalism that big corporations love. It is why the Chairman of GE is… Read more »

It is funny how sierrawave.net will allow 90 of the liberals to say whatever they want on this site and only allow 10% of the conservatives posts to actually be posted. So much for Free Speech on Sierra Wave.

Not sure why you insist on labeling Sierra Wave. We don’t label ourselves and have no use for them. If we’re not posting something, it’s either libelous or too hateful.

GravyChute has no place to comment, in fact it contains nothing but links to other news sources – Sierra Wave, Mammoth Times, The Sheet, LA Times. Sounds like a site you are promoting.

When a prominent community figure decides to host a party for an accused child predator, there’s going to be comments and fall out, as there should be.

My comment was a joke, I consider it fair game under the circumstances.
