Accredited News Sites Reform Their Comment Sections To Counter Hate Speech

In order to fight the rise of fake news and hate speech, accredited news sites have made a series of changes to their comment sections, and in many cases have removed them all together. Sites have been forced to make these bold changes in the wake of alt right trolls and Russian bot farms swamping their comment sections with comments questioning and undermining important progressive narratives, many of them cleverly dressing their bigotry in facts, evidence and statistics. This simply could not be tolerated, and editors took swift and decisive action against these disrupters, allowing progressive authors to continue their groundbreaking journalism without being challenged or criticized by ignorant dissenters.

Take for example the Guardian, which has banned comments altogether for contentious articles, and implemented a series of modifications to the comments sections on other articles. Where comments are allowed, they are hidden by default and a few carefully selected positive comments are shown at the top, called the “Guardian pick”, ALL of which agree with the article. The Guardian does not use ratings to judge which comments appear in the Guardian pick – instead they employ a range of subjective measures at the discretion of their accredited editors. Finally, those persistent enough to find the actual comment section will see that many comments have been removed by moderators for violating the Guardian’s strict community guidelines.

Unfortunately much remains to be done, as the highest rated remaining comments are often the most critical of the article, and it’s hard to tell whether these people seriously question sensible progressive narratives, or are simply working for Putin or an underground alt right troll army. In addition, sites like Amazon have their own problem with ratings, where books like Hillary’s “Stronger Together” receive overwhelmingly negative ratings and Trump’s books receive overwhelmingly positive ratings. Jeff Bezos has tried to solve this problem by eliminating existing ratings, only to see the negative ratings reappear. 

In my opinion, ratings, reviews, comments and any form of consumer feedback needs to be removed from accredited sites in order to prevent right wing saboteurs from undermining our messages and narratives. Criticizing progressives who only want peace, tolerance and diversity is tantamount to hate speech, and has no place in a forward thinking, liberal democracy.

If there are no comments, how do we know anyone read the article?
And if all comments are in support of fake news, then it is likely that the media department that created the fake news, has put in all the comments.
Countries that are currently getting enslaved with biometric id surveillance, demonetization, cashless economy, GM crops, GM mosquitoes, mass vaccination campaigns, common national tax (no decentralized state taxes), electronic “voting”, etc have huge media departments that hunt down and eliminate negative comments. These countries also have laws against criticism of leaders who enslave the country to the globalist cabal.

Take India for example, they have hundreds of thousands of NGOs, and apparently 60-80% of those have been funded by Bill Gates at one time or the other. These NGOs influence law making, the rules and regulations, generate crowds for campaigns, and also create “news” which the MSM freely publish – http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/dont-think-phfi-issue-has-anything-to-do-with-us/article18186274.ece

So basically, one pathological idiot, who is not even a citizen of India, runs the “democratic” country, and anyone who toes his line, becomes a bold nationalist. Once India is enslaved with Aadhaar biometric unique ID (which gets linked to bank accounts, phone SIMs, driving licence, insurance, travel, pensions, etc) and GST (the centralized goods and services tax, which dictate that you can’t carry more than 800 dollars worth of goods without a e-bill, or some similar shit), then the globalists have it easy to get the other countries within the matrix.

Enjoy life in the plantation with accredited news, and approved comments.

vaccination is horrible. I want my polio back

Unfortunately as Anon pointed out that mass polio vaccination program in India created 50k flaccid paralysis cases in one year. This paralysis is worse than polio. Without vaccination there would have been less than 1000 polio cases. Also remember that vitamin C was found to be effective against polio, so it is possible that those who get polio might have trouble with vitamin C metabolism.
Agreed that vaccination is based on observation that we get immunity after certain illnesses, and so using weakened organisms to trigger immunity is a good thing. But that is not the whole story.

there would be so few polio cases because of…VACCINATION you idiot

Onan’s lack of logic and comprehension shows how proud we should be of the fact that we are progressives. Even minor numbers of lunatics among progressives are orders of magnitude better that anti-vaccination idiots, who do not understand that vaccination and public sanitation are the only major reasons behind average human lifespan increase from 35 years in 18th century to what it is now, over 70 years.

I do not know from what stormtrooper website Onan gets 50 polio cases in India per year BEFORE vaccinations.

Polio was eradicated due to VACCINATIONS. Perhaps not with Gates vaccine, but with some other one, but it was vaccinations nevertheless. Conclusion is that while one can certainly argue about the value and dangers of a specific vaccine (Gates, or any other), the value of mass vaccinations can not be underestimated. Marinated Le Pen said that “Without vaccination there would have been less than 1000 polio cases” which is lunacy cubed.

your “evidence” is, to use the technical term in scientific circles, complete horseshit.

Vaccines eradicated smallpox as well. Measles, mumps, etc. With anti-vax moonbats’ proliferation, these diseases are MAKING A FUCKING COMEBACK. To you morons, because you do not understand something, you assume it is all part of some sinister conspiracy to fuck you over. Idiotic.

What a great article!

We should never be afraid of opposing viewpoints provided that they are in line with community standards; that is the very definition of a democracy. On the other hand, free speech is so often abused that it’s time we remove it for persistent offenders.

we should go further- each computer should have a self-destruct mechanism where accredited sites, like for example Jeff Bezos’ blog, the WaPo, could have their editors trigger a destruct for the posting of hate facts, hate science, or other hate information.

Haters have no right to post on the internet.

All Media need to follow Accredited Times lead. All posts that don’t meet strict guidelines need to be reported to federal agencies where they need rapid prosecution. Dissenting opinions must be suppressed.
Our Justice department has really dropped the ball. If more people were brought to trail and publicly sentenced to re-education we would see less trouble makers like Anon posting hate speech.
If the USA meant business they would drop a MOAB on the Ecuador Embassy to eliminate Julian Assange. The message needs to be loud and Clear.
Follow the progressive party line of thought or die!

I am going to march against climate change. My expert accredited leaders told us that this is the effective answer to the climate disruptions we see.

I can not wait as I plan to sell bottled water at the event to help our economy and environment. Look at this prop or not fake scientist trying to undermine our noble inclusive efforts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEPW_P7GVB8

For most sites perhaps the best way to preempt hateful comment is installing paywalls thereby shaking out most of the lice. AT, however, has such avant garde content the morbid curiosity seekers, losers, drunks and misanthropes would likely hang around like jackals circling a carcass. There’s a certain group in all large populations willing to pay for watching dead bodies rot on the streets of Venezuela.
