How Not to Handle the Blogosphere

Posted by: of Expansion Plus on 01/5/07

ABC/Disney is on the warpath against Spocko, a media critic who took umbrage to some of the content aired on KSFO-AM.According to Media Post the conflict stems from Spocko’s criticism of a right-wing talk show that had some comments that were particularly venomous.

Disney has spooked Spocko’s Internet service provider into taking down the blog–but Spocko isn’t giving up the fight just yet. He’s contacted the Electronic Friont Foundation and intends to continue the fight – legally if necessary.  And what might have been a storm in a teacup has become a very public fight – and we’re all blogging about it.

A good lesson in how not to deal with negative comments online.

  1. I’ve listened to KSFO on and off for years; they’ve slid down to being close to what I’d call a “hate radio station.” I’ve heard anti-Muslim cracks, pro-violence advocacy, and an assortment of stuff I’d expect to hear from the KKK.

  2. maybe blogs should be handled like customers, with politeness, and true consideration of what the complaint is.

    ABC needs to face the music. if they are sponsoring hosts who openly advocate the torture and killing of people as a “joke.” they need to deal with it seriously.
