In essence couldn't they create 'fake people' and then commit an act of terror?

Absolutely amazing. Wonder if Boehner is aware of this? Mitch McConnell.

And then identify said people as tea partiers?  You betcha.

Gee, as if it weren't bad enough that the democrats were using dead people to vote, now they're going to be using virtual people to shepherd real people in predetermined directions without telling them that they're being shepherded.

Seems like an awful lot of trouble to gang up on noobies!    Okay....to quiet or mute a trending POV?

It's a rather troubling concept and is even worse than the putative "journalist" who "forgets" to mention that s/he has a quid pro quo for positive coverage of an administration's policies.

And then, how easy would it be to track all people who die, and then depending on their voting habits, etc., give them a virtual life on the blogs?  Again, dead people already vote so what's the point?

Nefarious reasons.  I want to know a lot more about this.

I'm not talking about giving dead people a second life online (that was just a passing reference to the democrats' known willingness to have dead voters continue voting from beyond the grave); I'm talking about how having an organization set up sophisticated sock-puppets to push the administration's point of view as if it were some sort of an impromptu, unplanned consensus - that's the part that's really troubling.

Hmmmmm...wonder how reliable Examiner.com is...

http://absolutewrite.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-168257.html

"I am a former employee of Examiner.com and I need to warn you of what is happening. The site is nothing but a scam. You think you are being paid every month, but Examiner, at certain points, freezes your page views no matter how many page hits you get. They do this for about a half hour each day. Sometimes, they reduce your page views at the very end of the evening. Very few people have noticed or complained.

There have been several examiners who haven't been paid for their work. I wish I knew of anybody suing them because I would be a witness.

Writing for this site will look bad on your resume. Examiner.com has a bad reputation and there is a reason why. Up until recently, there was no quality control (and there still isn't much). People have put up the most laughable articles in order to get page hits. Instead of having the channel managers actually check content before it gets displayed, they put up a "Report Article" button so people who don't like your article can complain about it. ONLY THEN do they actually look at your article. It doesn't matter if it's a good article. If you write about - lets say - Michael Jackson and his crazy fans complain, the article will be deleted, even if you are telling the truth. They don't have a political preference like some people claim, but if you don't like an article about - let's say - Barack Obama, you can complain ten different times under a different guise. They will delete the article and give the author a warning. QUALITY DOESN'T MATTER at Examiner.com.

Please don't fall for their scam. You can bet that the page view rate will sharply decrease in the next couple of months because a lot of advertisers have caught on to the Examiner.com scam and don't want to be associated with the site."

thanks, wtf!  I'll look further at the 'evidence'.

...but consider that he just held a milk summit with the geniuses of the tech age.

PS:  Do NOT miss Beck's show this Friday.  Supposed to be a keeper.

Surely people didn't think Obama flew to Silicon Valley for a private dinner with his software fiefdom for the fun of it........
