Thing 12

I found these news sites vaguely interesting, but I don't see myself using them soon. First, all four sites had completely different stories-- so it seems like it would continue to be impossible to keep up. Secondly, just because there aren't formal editors doesn't mean the content isn't being edited or chosen, or subject to political influence. I've heard stories about what a group of dedicated users of these sites can do-- say Ron Paul supporters burying any information that shows that he does follow the Republican line on a number of issues-- in order to influence other users to see the news through their own lens.

I chose to Digg this story because there should be more press about Children's Literature.
