Google’s new tool, Perspective, works by comparing comments left on news websites to comments left on Wikipedia and the New York Times that were deemed “toxic” by a team of human reviewers.
The only criteria given for what constitutes a “toxic” comment is that it causes someone to leave a conversation. Obviously, this could also include someone who lost a debate or who is merely offended or triggered by another comment.
With trust in mainstream media plummeting, the real goal behind the censorship and in some cases entire removal of comment sections is to manipulate public opinion.
As the Daily Tech revealed, Popular Science admitted that the decision to pull its comment section was in order to preach a “scientific doctrine” on global warming without being challenged.
Popular Science acknowledged that their decision was based on a study by Dominique Brossard, a Life Sciences Communication professor at the Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison, that appeared in the February 2013 edition of the peer-reviewed Journal of Computer-Mediated Communications.
And this is what you have going on right now with mainstream media outlets. They are supposed to be allowing US citizens discuss and fact check their articles but now your seeing their own personal bias become the news. Big shout out to Infowars!
Frank, your work is amazing!!!!!
This just smacks of censorship big media is not worth a dime
If looking at a story I might want to read our not want to read, I looked to see the comments section if there isn't one I won't read that particular story at least on that site.
The thought police are in full swing. We are being divided into two clear halves in this country and in the world. Something is going to have to happen, imho.
The two-"state" (or multi-"state") EVOLUTION is coming to the usoa.
Do not disagree, but this EVOLUTION should be peaceful - where each HSS gets what they want. But time will tell?
And yet, they accuse conservatives of being "Nazis", for ONE example, when they are doing the WORST things that we criticized COMMUNISTS for, for many years! I guess now being a COMMUNIST is better than nazi so it is ok to them!
