Wall Street Journal column incorrect about Peer News in column on comments on news Web sites

A column by Gordon Crovitz in Monday's Wall Street Journal mischaracterizes our approach to comments at Peer News, the start-up news service in Honolulu I'm working on with eBay founder Pierre Omidyar.

As soon as I saw his column Sunday, I contacted Crovitz to ask him for a clarification. I've exchanged thoughts with him before and appreciate the work he does in his column. He was gracious and said he would pass my comments along to his editors for a possible clarification or letter to the editor.

Here's what I wrote him Sunday.

Hi Gordon,

Thanks for mentioning Peer News in your latest column, but I wish you had contacted me before you wrote that paragraph. It doesn't accurately reflect our position. I would ask that you publish a clarification. Members of our subscription-based service will be able to post their thoughts on a regular basis. But they won't be presented in the way "comments" are traditionally on news sites. We have a whole strategy for how to handle this. Our intent is actually to encourage civil dialogue and debate, not stop people from talking.

You wrote:

Peer News, a new site launching in Hawaii and funded by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, will not permit comments at all. Editor John Temple said anonymity had so reduced responsibility that comments sections have been dominated by "racism, hate, ugliness" and "reflect badly on news organizations that have them."



Here's the top of my blog post from March 18, with the note that I had that day or the next clarified my statement about comments.

This is a draft of the speech I gave at the Newsmorphosis conference in Honolulu on Thursday, March 18. My actual remarks varied from this outline. You can see my talk on ustream.

Updated to clarify my statement about "comments."




Then here's what I wrote in the text to clarify:

Maybe now you’ll understand why we’re not going to have "comments". (I put quotes around the word comments after Jay Rosenpointed out that it sounded like I was saying it was going to be a one-way conversation. My point was that we were going to have debate, discussions, conversations - not comments. We think we can create a more satisfying and civil environment through this approach, rather than using "comments" after an article.)


I put quotes around comments, because I was trying to differentiate how we're going to approach conversation and dialogue with the widespread approach on news sites of allowing people to post anything under a story. We will not have comments on article pages. We will tell members that if they want to discuss the topic of an article, they should go to a hosted discussion on what we're calling a beat update page, where the reporter-hosts and editors will interact with our members. We will also have ratings for the comments that members post on the beat updates pages.

I hope this helps. I'd be happy to discuss. But I would very much appreciate your help in clarifying this.

  53. Nâng mũi bán cấu trúc giờ đã trở thành lựa chọn hàng đầu của chị em thời thượng khi quyết định thay đổi dáng mũi của mình. Ngay sau 45 phút phẫu thuật, khách hàng đã có thể cảm nhận rõ ràng sự khác biệt ở chiếc mũi cũng như toàn bộ gương mặt. Tuy nhiên, để kết quả thẩm mỹ được duy trì và đảm bảo dáng mũi lên form chuẩn đòi hỏi quá trình chăm sóc hậu phẫu chính xác, cẩn thận.
    Nẹp cố định trong 1 tuần đầu tiên sau nâng mũi
    Thời gian đầu sau khi nâng mũi, cấu trúc xương còn yếu và dễ xô lệch, vì vậy nẹp mũi sẽ có tác dụng giữ cho dáng mũi ổn định và nhanh chóng vào form.
    Trong thời gian này, chỉ 1 tác động nhỏ cũng dễ dàng khiến cho dáng mũi mới bị lệch vẹo, biến dạng, ảnh hưởng tới kết quả thẩm mỹ. Do đó, việc đeo nẹp liên tục trong vòng 7 ngày đầu tiên sau khi nâng mũi mà không nên tháo ra với bất kỳ lý do gì là vô cùng quan trọng.
    Nẹp mũi sẽ có tác dụng giữ cho dáng mũi ổn định và nhanh chóng vào form.
    Chườm đá liên tục trong 1-2 ngày đầu tiên.
    Chườm đá nhẹ nhàng, liên tục xung quanh vùng phẫu thuật giúp giảm nhanh tình trạng sưng tấy. Sau khoảng 3-5 ngày, hiện tượng này sẽ hoàn toàn biến mất và dáng mũi sẽ nhanh chóng ổn định như ý.
    Lưu ý không nên chườm đá trực tiếp hoặc để nước đá dính vào vết thương.
    Nâng ngực bằng phương pháp nào tốt?
    Vòng 1 căng tràn, nảy nở luôn là vũ khí quyến rũ bậc nhất của phái đẹp, nhưng không phải cô gái nào cũng may mắn sở hữu vẻ đẹp này. Đặc biệt, với phụ nữ Châu Á thường có khuôn ngực nhỏ nhắn bẩm sinh, kèm theo tình trạng ngực teo nhỏ sau thời kì nuôi con bằng sữa mẹ cũng khiến không ít chị em tự ti, mặc cảm vô cùng.

    Để cải thiện tình trạng này, phẫu thuật Nâng Ngực Nội Soi 4D đã ra đời, giúp chị em khắc phục triệt để mọi khuyết điểm của vòng 1, mang đến cặp tuyết lê căng tràn sức sống, mềm mại tự nhiên. Đây được đánh giá là một trong những phương pháp nâng ngực hiệu quả và an toàn nhất hiện nay.

    Nâng ngực nội soi là phương pháp nâng ngực có sử dụng thiết bị nội soi, trong đó có gắn thiết bị phóng đại trường mổ lên màn hình. Nhờ vậy, bác sĩ có thể quan sát chính xác được toàn bộ quá trình giải phẫu, từ đó can thiệp, bóc tách mô mềm để đặt túi ngực vào bên trong ổ ngực.
