I've long suspected that the operators of Mail.com have sharp right leaning ideologies. I've noticed their tendency to focus on events and angles which serve conservative interests. I've also noticed their tendency to focus on events and angles which belittle or insult liberal interests. It's been going on for years at Mail.com. Even their ads tend to promote conservative interests.

Today Mail.com placed an article regarding the second most narrow wealth gap in the developed world and political efforts to keep it that way. The overall content of the article indicates a positive effect for the Danish people. However, the article is front loaded with several lines of negative spin. It's also front loaded with two photos which give the impression of wide-spread poverty. The third photo is more neutral but not of any economic relevance.

Read the article, check those photos, and judge for yourself.

By the way, I see one or more of my Buzi critics are back onsite marking my comments down. It started again today immediately after I posted another Buzi page on Craigslist.

Still falling. Oh well. It will have no effect on me.
