Avoid redirect. Two things - this article needs citations & there's problems with the pronouns, as I mentioned on the talk page.
Starting at approximately [[January]] of 2007 a disproportionate number of postings about [[Ron Paul]] began showing up on the site's home page due to fanatical support from Paul's base. The number of articles has been steadily decreasing since [[April]] of 2007 as Ron Paul failed to generate significant numbers at various Republican caucuses.
Digg started as tech news site, but during 2007, a political section was added, which resulted in increase of politically-related articles and also attracted large amounts of far-left oriented [[liberal]] users, many of them being fanatical supporters of [[Barack Obama]]. Since then, Digg has (along with far-left political sites such as Daily Kos and Huffington Post) became one of the Internet strongholds of anti-religious, [[anti-conservative]] and [[anti-American]] propaganda. [[Liberal hate speech]] is rarely sanctioned by Digg's staff while accounts of some conservative or [[Republican_Party|Republican]] members were banned simply because they continuously expressed their opinion (which usually offended liberal fanatics to the point they started flame wars, often ending up in insults, mockingsmocking, or even death threats towards conservatives). During [[September]] of 2008, almost all political stories reaching Digg's front page from its U.S. Elections 2008 section<ref>[http://digg.com/2008_us_elections/ Digg.com - 2008 U.S. Elections 2008] section </ref> were smears or lies about [[John McCain]] or [[Sarah Palin]].
Since the 2008 election, Digg has continued to act as a mouthpiece and aggregator for extremist [[liberal propaganda]]. Prior to [[Barack Hussein Obama|Barack Hussein Obama]]'s]] inauguration, for example, several popular pieces on the website were written by apologists for [[drug abuse]] and [[addiction]].
