Online Comments: Freedom of Speech or the Bane of the Internet?

Hosted by

Internet websites are grappling with an issue as old as the freedom of speech. It's all about online comments — when they're offensive, off the point or so ignorant it distorts the value of carefully researched science. On this archived edition of To the Point, should they be allowed anyway, or censored? Should websites deny anonymity, or should they ban online comments altogether? Also, the mystery of low turkey prices. On today's Talking Point, the glorification of drug cartels, including bloody threats, set to traditional Mexican music. We hear about the increasing popularity across this country of narco corridos.
