With all the talk about fake stories in the media and conspiracy websites being targeted. I have one simple question. This question is not only for owners of ATS but staff, mods and members.

Has ANYONE who is a member here at ATS been contacted in an effort to sway, alter, or other wise censor or scrub subject or threads produced by members??

I have attached links of the attempt by some to censure content as an example.....

LA Times

NYT

LMAO How can I not be serious?? Let's see if the fake news peeps or shills step up? I would imagine ATS owners and people who pay for adds could easily shed some light on if there is a movement to stop so called FAKE NEWS or is this just a story to attack what ever news doesn't go with certain agendas?

I think it's a valid question.

They just kick it to the trash bin or hoax bin. And usually it's an individual.
It is NOT a policy.

So everything in the HOAX or trash bin are the real stories that have been covered up?? That would actually be too funny...

Wonder if the pizza shop man with the gun was a member. That would be eerie.

I know one topic-thread here that was heavily censored by request from an outside source.

I won't link it, but it was a few years ago and was politically motivated.

I'm sure there have been many past nut jobs that were members of conspiracy websites, fringe forums and news sources. Yes even some were probably even members of our beloved ATS...

You will never be able to stop crazy people from well.....being crazy.

My question is does that mean places like this should be censored and have members or ATS themselves been approached to censor certain subjects?? I'm totally serious lol.

I would hope no censorship but that's the decision of the owners. We know there is some here but maybe not the reason.

No conspiracy sites are without a fake news or two, ATS is not an exception! But adding to this.. the ATS is the owners home, his rules!

Those meat-heads who think they know whats right and how to go about daily business forget we have minds capable of deciphering things on our own.
Puzzles are only puzzles until all the pieces fit?

Why defend with name-calling fit for a Freudian slip?
Fake news has been outed, plain and simple.

Those who are brave enough in the face of adversity will admit their faults.
If they were worthy of forgiveness, they'd ask for it?

Until then it's the same song and dance, my friend.

Accusations against ATS or it's members (calling members shills) are not acceptable and never have been, since way before the hot-button issue of "fake news".

This thread is closed, pending further input by Owner/Admin, should they so choose.
