They think they can control the flow of information on the internet.
They are sorely mistaken.

I'd rather no comments sections at all, personally. I read the article for the article, not the pissing match under it which detracts greatly from the author's efforts in the first place.
A resounding round of applause for modern blocking add-ons -- at least I can block the bulls# underneath and never have to see someone go full retard for multiple posts under a good article

The fox and cnn live news streams on youtube don't censer anything.
Now go read ether of those for an hour and tell me that some kind of moderator is not needed.

Because it's a hate-fueled free for all on right-leaning sites.
Liberals don't BOTHER with Fox and Brietbart. No NEED to censor there. Russians and useful right-leaning idiots FLOOD more liberal sites however constantly.

Your not gonna like this, I think any unbiased analysis would agree..
A) due to trump there has been a massive influx of trolls to he right side of the conversation. People who will not debate a topic logically, but instead go straight to the BS propaganda/ad hominem attacks..
Only saying things like “fake news”, “libtard”, exc without actually making a counterpoint to go with it..
Which obviously derails any conversation those willing to debate logically are trying to have..
B) look at the sources for each sides facts.. MAINLY, but not exclusively the left uses sources like...
CNN, NBC, New York Times, Washington Post, Huffington Post , the Fox News( hard news), exc..
Though you can point to examples of corruption and propaganda from all of them, they are all brick and mortar news organizations with years of experience and they all employ news desks and investigative reporters. All (except maybe fox) have publicly fired people for publicly lying or publishing fake stories..
B,2) the sources on the right however are...
Infowars, brietbart, Newsmax , FOX NEWS OPINION COMMENTORS, exc and dozens of other smaller sites with even less credibility...
None of those have news desks or investigative reporters.. they are just compilation sites that copy paste other peoples stories after twisting them to their own personal political bend..
None, of those have ever fired a reporter for publishing a fake story... none of them even employ reporters who go around investigating stories...
Hell the saturation of the “the worlds media sources are all In a vast conspiracy to discredit conservatism” narrative has probably stopped more left wing propaganda stories than anything else..
If you broadcast “hey he is gonna lie to you and tell you the sky is falling..”
If I am about to lie to you about the sky falling, I can longer do that now...
