Great thread!

I recently was shocked when YAHOO, did the same to me. I replied on a thread about Romney...my post was something along the lines of saying ..

"Fox news is a propaganda machine as is all MSM, their goal is to trick the poorer, less educated, and MAJORITY into voting for the top 1% needs. So they spend MILLIONS on advertising, messages, and brainwashing us with misinfo...and the majority of the public falls for it."

No profanity or direct personal attacks on any other poster..then I got this message from Yahoo, threatening to SUSPEND my account, they sent me a link to "review terms of service" which was 20 pages long...If I lose my yahoo account for email, it's all tied to everything I own and do, bank, bills, contacts, social media, etc etc. I've had this account for over 12 years now. NEVER had a threat like that.

Looks like they are trying to slowly muzzle those of us trying to WAKE UP the rest.

Good job, keep spreading the word....CHANGE is COMING. The truth can't hide forever!



Wow, really? That would give me pause about shooting my mouth off about the truth too. While at the same time making me want to find a way to get the truth in people's faces even more. Scary stuff...

Did you read the terms and conditions after they sent them? I would be interested to see what they say. I don't have a yahoo account.

This reminds me of the South Park "human centipede" episode when Kyle gets kidnapped by Apple because he agrees to the terms and conditions without reading them. Great episode, and I'll admit it made me start to always read terms and conditions before accepting them!

Every business in the world has a disclaimer, 'we refuse the right to serve anyone' etc. Even at ATS things are only deleted if they grossly violate the T&C. Now please show in your post where this guy was violating CNN's posting policies.

Yahoo posts can be pretty brutal, I would suspect some of those posters being part of some type of propaganda unit to sway public opinion, brainwashed individuals just mimicking what they have been taught, younger people not yet aware of the big picture. I think everyone has been a victim of propaganda at one point or another.

A few years back yahoo, at least the .ca site banned people from posting on news stories altogether, couldn't post for months maybe over a year. I've had posts deleted and have seen lots disappear it's really not unexpected, then you get some sites and a certain story has "Comments have been disabled" or "We are no longer accepting comments" surprise surprise those stories usually involve some type of high level corruption or a sensitive topic.

CNN and the rest of them are just delivery systems to push agendas, hypnotize viewers, and is undoubtedly the most powerful tool to indoctrinate people with propaganda and lies that has every been devised.

Saudi financed CNN doesn't want to report this either:

Nigeria church attack leaves at least 19 dead

www.independent.co.uk...

This is just like our friends the Saudis who continue hating those Christians, who gave asylum and protections to their Prophet in his days of trouble during the first years of Islam

Riyadh deports 35 Ethiopian Christians for praying

www.jpost.com...

Concerning Syria, in 1860 there was a Christian massacre by the Muslim Druze supported by Turkey and the West. Now, almost 200 years later the same thing is happening – shame on us!

Maronite Syrian Massacre 1860

Happens all the time here in NYC when posting comments to a NY Post or Daily News article where Bloomberg is involved. I've also found they just simply don't allow comments to some articles so the information within cannot be publicly questioned.

Not surprised, honestly. The "major" news networks are in fact outlets for the globalists. Even many of the smaller news outlets take their feeds from the bigger ones, and CNN/Fox/MSNBC usually take their news from Reuters and AP. There are only a few independent sources and then there's drudge. Great find OP.

I think its clear, CNN removed his post. What YOU fail to understand, is that it CAN.
You make it sound like CNN is the only News organization, doing it. Typical sensationalism. You know it, I know it. You have no idea if this person had broken any or all the other rules, to justify his post getting deleted.

Because that's the way the (Caballa News Network) operates. It tell's you what it wants you to know. Contrite entertainment is all CNN is. All CNN has going fot it is the bevy of beauties reading the teleprompter.

First of all: How many times has the MSM broken top news stories? A bunch.. So before everyone starts jumping on the MSM is evil bandwagon, try to remember: While the Company has ties and agendas, not all of the reporters do..

People on ATS will blindly follow Jesse Ventura [who was on a channel owned by the same "bastards" that owned the MSM], but vehemently deny anything that comes out of HuffPost, BBC, etc..

Use a little common sense when you read/watch/listen to the news, but don't dismiss everything, there are some reporters on our side, even if they have to sugar coat their report..

I agree 100% with the media being biased, BUT you can learn from everyone


2nd: Someone mentioned the angry spew in the Yahoo! comments, and I've noticed that myself.. I try to stay away from the comments on any Yahoo story, because it makes me sick.. the amount of anger and hatred is insane, even on things that shouldn't have any..
for example: i was reading an article about DMX {the rapper guy} and how he was finally going to rehab to get clean for his kids.. No matter what, it's a positive thing he's doing and should be applauded for it, right? Nope, nothing but hateful messages..

If you go to any politically charged story, it gets 10000% worse.. these people call for the deaths of everyone.. that's actually most of the comments, people saying "They should be hanged cuz they don't agree with my opinions" or coming up with creative new ways to murder people.. real sickening stuff..

I hope they are coming from a propaganda team, but i wouldn't be surprised if that's how the whole of society feels.. everyone is angry, but they only know how to fight and kill, not use words.. Plus, Americans think death is the best answer to any crime..................

'Soft' censorship has been going on online for years; especially in relations to US critical rhetoric. Websites (e.g., StraightDope.com) moderated, delete and ban users summarily without as much as a 'by your leave' whenever anything 'anti West / American' sentiment is detected ...irrespective of how rooted in fact such critique may be.

The fact is, website fora are often given govt directives to 'encourage' positive Western propaganda or otherwise face "potential difficulties" in their future operations.

China aren't the only information Nazis; make no mistake.

So CNN chose to place a comment at the top that would keep the masses fighting among themselves - religion.

The tactic has been the same for thousands of years. Divide and conquer.

Some good news can be found in that MSNBC doesn't seem to delete posts going against the article's intended message. That topic was "Kofi Annan quits role as UN's Syria envoy".

Every morning I make sure to check MSN.com and comment on any Syria related stories. I often get top comment but they don't delete it. Yahoo and CNN definitely do and did to me.

But look at how many votes that CNN comment had before it was deleted. Them deleting it shows their fear and shows people are indeed waking up. Their end is near. CNN's plummeting viewership each month proves that we're gradually winning. They lost nearly 50% of their viewers since 2008 while alternative media grows.

I've noticed many times that there are selected articles that only allow comments. For example. Many times I've seen 9/11 articles, or 7/7 articles which ridicule people who question the official "conspiracy theory". But that article would not allow comments, whereas you click a link to another article or headline and comments are allowed.


I hardly ever get my comments posted by a moderator. BBC is the worst.

I did however get the BBC to remove an entire page once a few years back. I commented on how badly biased the news reporting was by the BBC on a specific news article and gave links to other websites that showed the exact story in a totally different way. My last sentence was something like "yet again more brainwashing propaganda written by the BBC". Literally the next day they removed the page with all comments.

Interestingly, "Land destroyer" who posted that comment has a website landdestroyer.blogspot.com...


Excerpt from the site:


....More recently, Brookings has published "Middle East Memo #21: Saving Syria: Assessing Options for Regime Change (.pdf)," which at face value betrays the narrative the West has attempted to maintain - that humanitarian concerns, not regime change, drives Western intervention in Syria. Not only does the Brookings memo admit the US would like to avoid a settlement or ceasefire that leaves Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in power, but continues on by stating the UN mission can be used as cover to establish "safe havens" and "humanitarian corridors" from which further "coercive action" can be dealt:

"An alternative is for diplomatic efforts to focus first on how to end the violence and how to gain humanitarian access, as is being done under Annan’s leadership. This may lead to the creation of safe-havens and humanitarian corridors, which would have to be backed by limited military power. This would, of course, fall short of U.S. goals for Syria and could preserve Asad in power. From that starting point, however, it is possible that a broad coalition with the appropriate international mandate could add further coercive action to its efforts." -page 4, Assessing Options for Regime Change, Brookings Institution.


On pages 8 and 9, the memo states:

"The United States might still arm the opposition even knowing they will probably never have sufficient power, on their own, to dislodge the Asad network. Washington might choose to do so simply in the belief that at least providing an oppressed people with some ability to resist their oppressors is better than doing nothing at all, even if the support provided has little chance of turning defeat into victory. Alternatively, the United States might calculate that it is still worthwhile to pin down the Asad regime and bleed it, keeping a regional adversary weak, while avoiding the costs of direct intervention." -pages 8-9, Assessing Options for Regime Change, Brookings Institution.

In other words, the US is seeking to perpetuate endless bloodshed simply to weaken Syria's geopolitical influence throughout the region - most obviously running contra to any concept of "humanitarianism" or "international law," and certainly, purposefully causing more death and carnage, not preventing it. Surely this signed confession seems worthy of airing before the UN Security Council, especially in light of recent revelations that the US and Gulf States are already arming Syria's opposition with this specific perpetuated bloodshed in mind.


This may have had something to do with them deciding to remove it...although that is only speculation.
