Yet another online media outlet has shut off the comment section’s on their articles.At a time when media companies are struggling to survive, they should ask themselves why their comments hold so much ridicule and criticism. If they do not want to see certain comments it is not that hard to moderate them.Technology makes it easy but most MSM these days do not value their readers enough to allow them to have their say.
The Billings Gazette is so backward that they now expect their readers to send a physical letter to the editor. This is as ridiculous as expecting someone to send a message via carrier pigeon. We communicate in the ” instant ” digital world. It is insulting to their readers to expect them to revert to snail mail. It is as silly as a BMW dealership telling their customers to buy an actual horse if they want more horsepower.
