There is no doubt that the explosion of the social content website DIGG.com is helping us reach an audience that would not normally read our material here at Infowars and Prisonplanet. However, it is also true that Digg provides debunkers a quick and easy way to bury our content should they choose to cling to their security blanket and dismiss what we report as fact.
Digg is a user driven social content website that has recently hit the top 100 websites on the internet. Everything on Digg is submitted by the Digg community. After digg users submit content, other people read their submissions and "Digg" what they like best. If the story rocks and receives enough "Diggs", it is promoted to the front page for the millions of visitors to see.
Recent Prisonplanet and Infowars material has made the HomePage of Digg.com, thus ensuring a readership of millions more than we would normally expect.
Whilst their have been many many positive comments and reactions to our reports, there have also been negative responses. This is fine in itself, everyone is entitled to an opinion, but more often than not the negative comments consist of baseless allegations that we are simply making things up and reporting them as news.
Debunkers who refuse to look at the facts are therefore not only opting to use the "bury" function on the Digg site (a tool that decreases the popularity of a story) but have also begun to report our content as spam.
