MiloYiannopoulos

In a move that has come to shock the internet, Milo Yiannopoulos Resigns from his position as editor at Breitbart News. The decision came after backlash from a video that surfaced from a year ago, in which Yiannopoulos made controversial comments about the age of consent laws. These comments seemed to indicate that Yiannopoulos excused, or even justified, pedophilia.

Yiannopoulos took to social media to defend himself against the backlash, which had already cost him a high-profile speaking gig and a book deal with Simon & Schuster. On Facebook, Yiannopoulos attempted to clarify what he said in the live stream video, claiming he used poor phrasing and that the video had been edited to make his words seem worse. Later, Yiannopoulos addressed his comments more fully in a press conference, admitting the opinions expressed in the live stream video were wrong, and citing his own history with childhood sexual abuse. He then attempted to defend himself further, claiming that his words had been misunderstood and misconstrued by the media and that many people simply did not understand his brand of sarcasm and humor.

Apparently it seems that Comcast has blocked access to the PirateBay, which is a well known and still defiant bittorent site. There is a battle going on here but for the moment the rules regarding net neutrality still hold. Although as a writer this person does not submit to the iron hand of Comcast, many publications are free to make their strong statements. For example Doug Aamoth claims he is being actively denied as a Comcast subscriber. In Boston where he is located he can not get access to the site.
