BLOGS: Racist, xenophobic and homophobic blog comments on News Ltd blogs ...

There are a small minority of bloggers for News Limited who regularly allow racist, xenophobic, homophobic, sectarian and other offensive comments onto their blogs. More often then not, these comments directly controvene State and Federal human rights legislation that proscribe homosexual, transgender, racial and ethno-religious vilification and discrimination.

If you want to read more about these comments and how News Ltd is dealing with them, feel free to visit the Media Mullah blog.

I don't regularly check the Fairfax blogs, and would be happy for anyone who comes across similar comments there to alert me to them at my e-mail address irfsol@yahoo.com.au.
