A typical Day at Digg. Filled with hypocrisy…

November 7, 2007

On Monday, the Digg community was gathering around to pay tribute to their god Jon Stewart for supposedly paying his writers their full salaries for at least 2 weeks while they were on strike.  The story got over 5000 Diggs, and any and every post that did not line up to suck Steart’s penis was blasted and buried. 

A funny thing happened on Monday night and Tuesday however. This story was shown to be BULLSHIT.  Stewart is not paying his writers anything.  Yet…when a Digg users submitted a story to clear it up, it was ignored.

Come on Diggers.  Are you trying to get the FACTS out, or has Digg really just become the online version of the audio-visual club, where social outcasts come to shut out the real world and pretend that their fantasies are real life?

Remember…the FACTS are that Jon Stewart is not paying his writers.  And that important correction deserves to be pointed out on Digg’s front page.
