HONG KONG,Nov 14-A senior editor at the Huffington Post said that the news site does censor some of its viewers’ comments.

The Huffington Post is one of the most successful online news, content aggregator in the US, and the English world. Owned by AOL, the Huffington Post is also famous for its critical, advocacy style of reporting and editorials.

Chris Anderson, a senior editor, said at a college seminar that the Huffington Post did have a “moderation” system to maintain a “civil atmosphere” in their community. “If you go to the site of Apple Daily, if they don’t have the filter, how many horrible words will you see?” he said.

He said the filter system not only flagged inappropriate words, the site is also monitored by groups of moderators and they will “adjust” the words. “Mistakes happen, but you have to make it as few as possible.”

“Jerks can have their opinions, Jerks can have their comments, but you only want to have a space where you can express yourself as much as possible.”

Anderson said The Huffington Post did respect the right of free speech for everyone, but they do not want to mess up an environment where people wanted to participate in. “You still can be jerks and leave your comments but don’t be racists,” he said.

Criticized as not a “regular journalist” by traditional media, Anderson thinks that is the process of the media transformation. He said it is normal to see some push back from printed media, but he insisted that the digitalized media will soon replace the traditional one.

“We never reject our printed media, we just lure them here,” he said.
