While I am a new writer on HubPages, I have been writing extensively online for several years. Within one day of joining HubPages, I noticed a number of biased (based on opinion, not facts) political propaganda articles which were about the President of the United States. I did flag and report the author (unnamed and anonymous profile, no photo) and specific examples, but this has not yet resulted in their removal. Not sure what else I can do, but I am honestly concerned about the impact on the reputation of HubPages if I am going to have a long and prosperous involvement here.

Junkseller, you have provided a particularly thoughtful, practical and well-balanced observation.
You had me at "equal opportunity". Very well-stated. I also think that "self-regulate" is a worthy philosophy to be guiding the process.
I totally agree with everything you you mentioned in your answer. Great response.
here! here! Well said
I like that quote.
Thank you for your insight. Won't we miss Gore Vidal? It certainly is sad that a common result is individuals voting against their own interests.
very true, often we have to wait for the rhetoric to become history to get the full picture
Thanks (I think) for giving me credit for asking a provocative question just to get responses. Actually I was hoping to learn more about my new neighbors! Thank you for the welcome.
Right on IDONO, it was the most sincere form of flattery, I'm sure aexbush. provocative question but almost everyone feels the same. We aren't going to change the world in our little corner here but we can start the wheels turning or not
Yes, the religious forums can be quite infuriating so I just have to stay away. The politics are the same everywhere and if one can't stand the hate it's best to tread lightly or risk getting pummeled! It is amazing the things people will say though.
I was wondering the same thing.
Of course, the vampire slayer example was truthfully marketed as "fiction". Fiction is OK! Some of the examples I referred to would be more truthful if they were also labelled as "fiction" rather than purporting to be factual.
I want to agree with you. Can you tell me which essay about the presidents is was to which you refer so I can see it? It wasn't one of mine was it?
Old Empresario, the articles referred to were not yours. It does not seem appropriate to identify specific Hubs here, especially since I was asking the question in general terms rather than trying to critique one Hub or another in a public forum.
