Their "news" links are conveniently missing the LA Times article.  They have only linked to an article about Foetry once: the NYT article that celebrated the "surrender" of Foetry.  Pretty funny.  If Poetry Daily ever folds, they can get a job working for the Ministry of Truth.

They are shills for the MFA programs. One need only look at how many times certain poets have appeared and reappeared in their dialy posts and features. Others are deemed persona non grata and never appear. As long as there is an MFA connection they'll post up the worst stuff out there.

It's more than that.  Selby rubs elbows with these guys all the time.  And they feed him "donations" --not just the MFA programs, but the publishers and the poets.  He's been given enough hush money that you'll never hear a peep about foetry anywhere near poetry daily.

his is the abyss--quit staring!
