Recently there was a lot of grief over TED not publishing a talk on income inequality, here are the real reasons it was not published.
fr33lunch: To be honest I didn't care for the talk. Not because of any political bias. I just didn't care for his delivery, nor was I persuaded by any of his arguments. It couldn't stand against any other TED talk I've seen, so for that reason it never should have been posted. I got the impression that he was trying to sell something. It turns out he was. His talk. To other venues.
