As I feared, guest “celebrity” writers don’t want to be corrected by their readers. The Huffington Post has removed all the comments savaging former RIAA CEO Hilary Rosen for her poorly researched post criticizing the iPod’s “incompatiblity” with other music services. I guess you don’t get to be the head of one of the most powerful lobbies in the world without learning how to suppress a little dissent and disguise your own mistakes.
The comments were originally under fomer Warner Bros. President Howie Klien’s rebuttal of Rosen. They were deleted at some point overnight, despite having been approved by the moderator earlier. I had the accidental foresight to leave the page open in my browser all night, so check out the whole discussion.
