A response to Lou Martuneac
SI: Censorship by Omission?
Is it possible that the site publisher’s decision to ignore and bury the Haddon Robinson/CBS story is due to the fact that they accept advertising revenue form CBS? Isn’t it possible that SI will not risk putting up a story of interest to readers because they fear the subsequent reaction might generate sharp criticism of Calvary? Isn’t it possible that SI is practicing censorship by omission to protect a source of sorely needed revenue to keep the site viable?
I believe it is more than reasonable to believe censorship-by-omission to protect a needed source of revenue is why SI will not publish this story from Calvary Baptist Seminary.

I, furthermore, utilized SI’s Contact Form, completed the required fields and submitted it to SI for their attention. There is no way SI can claim they were not aware of this important news item
Comment: Note the above comment about the contact form. I'm the one who receives the filings suggestions via the contact form. I received it at 12:52 p.m. Central time yesterday - Sunday October 9th. The image below illustrates this fact. (click for larger)
Lou alleges that we did not respond to his contact form. Note image below which is a snapshot of his blog post above
The time of his original comment was at 1:15 p.m.
Back to yesterday. I returned from church about noon. Frankly email and web stuff is not exactly my highest priority. I think I had a Pepsi and took my shoes off and turned on the Vikings while Kathee grilled burgers. Along the way I did post the Haddon Robinson event as a filing at 3:42 p.m.
In Lou's little pathetic universe we were remiss to not post it as a filing .... AND when we did post it as a filing it is called "easily manipulated with the right kind of outside pressure." There's a phrase that describes this: "prating against us with malicious words" (3 John 10)
I posted a comment on Lou's blog explaining this timeline but he chose not to publish it. Comments on this blog are open (although I do moderate them because of spam issues). And even Lou may comment if he wishes
