sounds like an abuse of the grant money, at minimum waste - that could have been used to contribute and support journalism in so many other ways....the only result i see that could come of of this will essentially be fast, computer-assisted censorship:
  • they still aren't going to be able to moderate every single comment (uphill battle)
  • and the number of comments by volume will only grow with time, including proportionally trolls and spammers;
i really think its likely that a machine will end up deciding if you're comment is worth of anyone elses viewing or not. this progress journalism how?

am I just not understanding this?
