Desperate MSM Moves to Kill Off Article Comments

Infowars – by Paul Joseph Watson

Desperate to cling onto their ability to dictate reality, the crumbling mainstream media is beginning to kill off article comment sections in a cynical bid to silence dissenting voices.

Studies confirm that article comment sections – for better or worse – are heavily swaying public opinion. How many times have you read a mainstream news article about NSA spying, drones, gun control or any other other hot button issue where the author sides with the establishment, only to have their argument completely eviscerated by a deluge of irate respondents in the comment section?

Recent polls show that trust in mainstream media is hovering at record lows. After largely failing to influence the court of public opinion via paid trolls, the establishment is starting to panic and is responding by moving to cull comment sections altogether.

Popular Science and recently announced their decision to kill comment sections on their website. The New York Times also recently indicated that it is scaling back comments and removing them from some articles altogether.

As an excellent Daily Tech piece highlights, Popular Science admitted that its decision to pull the comment section was in order to preach a “scientific doctrine” on global warming without being challenged.

The origin of the word “doctrine” is to indoctrinate. Therefore, Popular Science is taking the most unscientific approach possible – by censoring debate and stifling alternative ideas – in order to indoctrinate its readers.

The decision to kill comment sections on news websites will only result in the mainstream media losing traffic to alternative sites which allow free expression and do not resort to censorship.

Watch the video above for the full breakdown of this audacious new attempt to stifle free speech by the corporate media.

  1. MSM is becoming more irrelevant by the day. I don’t even bother going to their sites. And it is easy to pick up the paid trolls on the Alt. sites, and blast them back to where they crawled out of.

  2. This isn’t a new phenomenon. They’ve been deleting comments from people who don’t support the propaganda for a long time, but now the numbers of dissenters is so overwhelming that they can no longer find enough supporting comments to even have a comment section at all if they want to hold onto the few believers they have left.

    I haven’t been able to comment on MSM articles in many years, and even most of the “alternative news” comment sections won’t allow my opinions. (because most of the “alternative news” is Zionist news in disguise)

  3. Science has been waging war on religion for some years. Now why would what is supposedly an objective academic discipline wage war on organised religion. It only makes sense to attack organised religions if the goal is to replace them with another religion.
    Does this religion have a name? In the past I have called it scienceology but that is unfair to scientologists who have never done me any harm. Libertarian new media in the UK seems to be settling on Scientism.

  4. There’s only one thing the Evilists worship is greed & power……nothing else! To lie is the norm, fortunately most have figured out their mode…….Continue to fight for Liberty, Freedom, Justice & Truth
