An individual from the organization also needs to provide legal

Don't take me wrong or jump off a flippin cliff, just think about my question and answer it with calm resolute. "Why would an individual, group or business present their message to the general populous and allow outside players to post anti-whatever to their message?" In my opinion, it would be no different than a bill board on the side of the highway. You rent it and post your message. I guess you could rent the next bill board on the road to counter or dispute the message. Is there some "right to reply" in our laws that I missed? If so, does it apply to the political ads too? Sure would be interesting to have a running comment section for each political ad. Maybe even a "fact check" to help.
Yahoo has "ceased" allowing comments on their Lame Stream Media articles. Started today, it seems like a censor the facts added by comments added. No comments no readee by me.
