I hope AARP is Getting Paid for Advertising The Daily Kos

Not sure exactly what the Daily Kos is but apparently BarryP443493 is in charge of advertising or distribution. If I wanted to read everything in whatever a "Kos" is I'd subscribe.

Daily Kos is a group blog and internet forum focused on the Democratic Party and liberal politics. The site features a participatory political encyclopedia, glossaries, and other content. It is sometimes considered an example of "netroots" activism.

It was founded in 2002 by Markos Moulitsas and takes the name Kos from the last syllable of his first name, his nickname whilst in the military.

Nice that you like it, but how about forgetting to use it in here and talk from what you know. One should get their information from many different places not just one. The far right enablers get their information from one source and most in here know the far right understand little of what is really going on, and that applies to all people use use one source. You are taking what thinking people post and dragging it down to the same level as the far right by your addiction to the Daily Kos. Let the DK stand on its own with out the endless pushing to read it. That approach turns off thinking people. So how about a 2 month break from anything from the DK as your support. We do not need a far right approach to counter Dictator Trump.

Too much of one source isn't the path to being fair and balanced. I feel that the Daily KOS is being forced on everyone.  I receive their stuff in my email box, we don't need such a large number of topics here to be based on The Daily KOS, it's almost like spamming.

Great. Now anyone who wants to read it can subscribe to it instead of having a dozen articles from it posted here. A little moderation, eh?

IMHO, there is nothing wrong with using an article from The Daily Kos as a post or a source. They are not near as radical to the left as Breitbart is to the right.

 

On the other hand ............ posting such a high number of Daily Kos topics and filling up the board with them is a type of spam.

Hello, Lou,

 

I also noted that member posting major KOS articles, so just stopped reading their posts.

 

Never would I have accused AARP of getting "paid" for those posts, so I'd recommend backing off that subject line.

 

Next, there is a link entitled "Report Inappropriate Content" on each and every post. Perhaps, use it when you suspect a post is being used for profit. I've done that and it works; AARP Community Managers investigate and take action when appropriate.

 

Finally, as I wrote above, just ignore that member's posts.

I didn't accuse anyone of anything. I said I hope AARP is getting paid for advertiseng Kos. Not an accusation. It's a perfectly appropriate subject line but thanks for your recommendation.
