Nov. 17, 2020. A little more than four years after turning off comments and directing everyone to Facebook, I’ve turned them back on. The move comes at a time when we’re all questioning our dependence on Facebook given the social-media giant’s role in spreading disinformation and subverting democracy across the world.

I will continue to post links on Facebook, and readers will be able to comment either there or here. But if you’d like to reduce your own use of the platform, I urge you to sign up for email delivery of Media Nation (click on “Follow This Blog” in the right-hand rail) and post your comments here. Your real name, first and last, is required.

    Kind regards Dan, You bring so much relaxation to this senior.

  2. I regret that commenting has largely moved to Facebook. Facebook feels very cramped to me, like being in a crowded store, or something — for me, Facebook is not nearly as conducive to composing a response as a blog page is. But I accept that things change.

Leave a reply. Real names, first and last, are required.
