Facebook Disables 'Boycott Dirty Blondes' Page On Its Site

At a time when the power of new media is quickly supplanting -- and even out-reporting -- traditional media, the "Boycott Dirty Blondes" Facebook page was a poster child of a new era.

It was explosive, fast, and exclusively crowd sourced. In just one day on Facebook, it crested an incredible surge of public vitriol aimed at Dirty Blondes following its bouncers' beat down of a patron, and netted 8,300 likes. It was a testament to the power of new media, dispatching scoops and sussing out sources with an army that was thousands strong.
