"Online Conservative Army" Claims Takedown of Obama Facebook Event Page

BY Nancy Scola | Thursday, April 21 2011

Daily Caller commentator Matt Lewis made the case yesterday that conservative commenters somehow brought down the comments section on Obama's Facebook townhall yesterday, a claim reprinted by ABC's Jake Tapper and Amy Walter. Obama did take a pummeling in the comments section, but the idea that somehow his opponents took down just his Facebook page doesn't make a tremendous amount of sense -- especially given the amount of traffic Facebook gets on a normal day. Over on Americablog, Democratic consultant Kombiz Lavasany runs the numbers.
