Vicious Comments About Tony Snow--Editor Approved

Charles Johnson makes a great observation about the L.A. Times: unlike many blogs which allow for instant publication of their readers’ comments, the L.A. Times requires editor approval before comments appear under their articles. Which means that an editor had to sign off on each of the vicious attacks on Tony Snow that are appearing under his obit.

Which is why Patterico asks: Given how quickly Howard Kurtz has been known to slam the starboard half of the Blogosphere when its commenters lose it, will he respond in-kind to the leftwing editors of the L.A. Times allowing readers with a similar slant to run amok there?
