Submission + - Maryland Government Uses Google Hangout to Fake Democracy.

Tyndmyr writes: Earlier today, Governor O'Malley announced via G+ and Facebook a live public townhall meeting would be held via Google Hangout for the recently proposed gun control legislation. However, those of us who joined found the google hangout empty of officials, with an entirely different version being broadcast "live". The questions were entirely unrelated, and the only participants were the handpicked officials. The questions read off by the moderator were not gathered from the hangout created, or indeed, from any of these social media sources, and appear to have been invented from whole cloth. Angry posts appear to dominate the governor's facebook and G+ page, but so far, little media notice has been taken of this event.
