Unfortunately a lot of people, mainstream news followers leaning, seem to base their opinions from internet commentary sections, and as mentioned of
already it's a haven for trolls. In the long run have to look to what the consequences may be. A decision as such to follow through removing comment
sections, I believe it will kill off a lot of the remaining MSM news hold on the net. For one there is a positive part, them killing off the sections
means they are intimidated by those they cannot control even by the placement of shills. That's almost expected and known. Then we have to wonder
what is next? Will the people who so adamantly follow the MSM online and off, finally seek other places, or be more so locked into a path where they
cannot seek an alternative view which some of the comments presented may have caught their attention. Will they finally seek an Alt route or? The
trolls and shills will move on, to places like ATS unfortunately.
One in observance that was quite sad, some might remember, crappy Yahoo's comment sections during last presidential elections it had Paul, Obama and
Romney. The Paul section was so rampantly controlled, only trolls comments(or what seemed liked shills with multiple names, could tell it was the
same person) were not flagged for removal. The other two forums seemed controlled at least by the same, because they were more positive towards the
candidate, anything different was quickly removed for the most part.
