CHANGE: Faced with internal division, liberal website clamps down on Obama criticism. “With a Democrat in the White House whose approval ratings have fallen well below 50 percent, liberal websites are entering some new territory–how to handle users who are reliably liberal but are not fans of President Barack Obama. Case in point is Democratic Underground (aka DU), a liberal discussion forum started in 2001 that, up until recently, was united in its hatred for former president George W. Bush. But now that many Democrats have withdrawn their support of Obama, DU responded last week with regulations on how its users may express opinions about the current occupant of the Oval Office and Democrats generally.”

Well, everything’s much nicer that way: “Whereas before the rules, DU was rife with criticism of how Obama has handled the oil spill, now, such complaints have ceased.”
