- There is a big difference between these two statements.
- Tom Reed flagrantly disregards his threat to remove offensive material.
- It isn’t clear if either statement is consistent with House Rules.
- Josh Gottheimer is known to remove critical comments.
- All comments, including harsh criticism which is censored, may be valuable to the representative.
- If criticism is censored, viewers may get a false sense of the representatives popularity.
