Last Day to Join Persuasive Copywriting, and a Punch in the Mouth for Facebook

Reader Comments (2)

  1. Don’t we have enough violence in headlines, political rhetoric (and real life) these days without an escalation of simple criticism into a “punch in the mouth”?

    Words matter. I feel strongly that violence should not be trivialized and turned into a laughing matter in this way.

    • Been thinking about your note, Marcia. And while I absolutely agree with you that violence should never be trivialized, my distress and anger with Facebook for not only the fraudulent numbers they reported to paying advertisers, but also their careless handling of customer privacy, and beyond that to the critical role they’re playing in the global rise of extremism, white supremacy, and erosion of democracy, my reactions go far, far beyond “simple criticism.”

      So, having thought about it, I stand by the strong words that I wrote in this headline. Not everyone will agree with that choice, and that, of course, is healthy and good.
