Is Vice Censoring Their Audience?

Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Vice is trying to fight against the dark side of comment sections. Will they succeed? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Vice just gave their comment section the boot.

Comment sections are special places. Those who frequent the comments at one particular outlet get to know one another and there is often very intense discourse. From what we hear, it can involve name-calling and the occasional ban, but people surely still come away from their encounters having had their minds opened to new ideas and having learned something important. We can’t be totally sure. It would be hard to look through all of the comments during an average day of writing, but we’re positive that everyone says really kind things about each one of the Mediaite writers individually and collectively.

Apparently, the commenters at Vice were not being kind. The site’s explanation for yanking the comments section is a barnburner lite that should be read in its entirety:”

      Nice reactionary post. I explicitly said ‘inb4’, as to preclude myself from
      those using it earnestly. They’re idiots, and I somehow made it here with 0
      views and 0 comments. Hence, ‘inb4 the cucks’.

      I hope I’ve spelt that out enough for you.

    liberals have no real arguments, so they just block any debate.
    unsurprising

    • Posted by Veruc, at Reply

      “Vice leans conservative.”
      Seek psychiatric help. You probably think Twitter is conservative too.

    • Posted by Benjamin Daniel, at Reply

      Would you like to expand on all the reasons you disagree with liberals
      despite them having “no real argument?” Like do you go to the park and
      debate with trees?

      I guess that’s why they “run all the colleges” according to the same group

    Liberals counter arguments:

    1) censor

    2) call everyone racist and xenophobe

    3) use your feelings

    4) avoid facts and numbers

    5) rinse and repeat

    • Posted by rahowhero X, at Reply

      Spoder Man muslims have claimed your comments are offensive, even (usually)
      when 100% accurate. your comments are then censored on all channels, and
      the individual channels must then unblock you ….. which tyt doesnt do. i
      got banned for the offensive to muslim strategy of quoting the koran to
      dispell users of taqiya ….. had to change my user name.

    • Posted by B4TT3RY, at Reply

      No, TYT isn’t censoring the comments. The way YouTube works, more comments
      = more money. TYT makes money from people commenting. When TYT makes a
      controversial video that gets people arguing in the comments section, they
      make even more money. TYT benefits from the trolls and the arguments. I
      think they purposefully throw in snide comments about conservatives just to
      purposefully trigger them in to commenting.

    Censorship only happens when is government official policy. Private
    companies can do whatever they want regarding troll comments, like the
    right to any citizen to close his house door to lunatics.

    • Posted by thenoobcannon, at Reply

      Edward Elric it’s not censorship because they don’t have the legal right to
      use violence against you. and if they try then it’s your lucky day because
      you get to exercise your second amendment rights.

  11. Posted by J3yblivion, at Reply

    You’re scared of anonymity because you want to crush opposition (from the
    left or right) with shaming tactics. The name behind the commenter
    shouldn’t be important if you’re actually debating real things. The person
    who doesn’t care about the debate wants everyone out in the open so that
    they can sic the angry status-quo mob on them when they ran out of real
    retorts.

    • Posted by J3yblivion, at Reply

      that’s a false dichotomy. It’s not like you can have a world where there’s
      anonymity and a crime virus and a world where everyone’s face is revealed
      and they all have honest productive conversations without any pitchfork
      wielding mobs being sicced on the dissent.

    • Posted by Benjamin Daniel, at Reply

      J3yblivion dude, use words correctly if you are serious. dichotomy is a
      conversation you want to say that is a false equivalence. although I
      disagree

    • Posted by Benjamin Daniel, at Reply

      J3yblivion also, what little faith you have in humanity. certainly you see
      that your “facts” are clouded by your fears of what has not happened to
      you. youd have to do or say something particularly offensive to be singled
      out by society these days. my advice, dont start nothing, wont be nothing

    • Posted by J3yblivion, at Reply

      you’re intellecutally dishonest and not cerebral, and definitely not worth
      another second of my time.

      here’s a dictionary definition of dichotomy:

      “a division or contrast between two things that are or are represented as
      being opposed or entirely different.”

    • Posted by Chuck Toddler, at Reply

      True

  12. Posted by Dj Tzonev, at Reply

    Privately owned companies can do as they please regarding “free speech”. If
    Facebook doesn’t want Neo Nazi garbage on their site they are absolutely
    allowed to censor it. It is not a government site. Those who wish to spew
    said garbage, should create their own platforms and not rely on liberal
    outlets to enable their hatred.

    • Posted by Spiffy co, at Reply

      I love the fact no one arguing in favor of Facebook censoring information
      even attempted to call me out, nice guys

    • Posted by A Rogue Chihuahua, at Reply

      +Longclaw22 – Quite often I find that it is liberals and not conservatives
      who are making racist comments.

    • Posted by Ashutos Sahay, at Reply

      Dj Tzonev but if they do, it shows that even though they may follow “free
      speech” the law, they don’t follow free speech the principle.

    • Posted by allah mohhamed, at Reply

      But many people get their news from social media. So the big social media
      sites have a duty to allow people the richt to discuss everything, I doubt
      neo nazi,s and there shitty arguments convince many people

  13. Posted by Tanner William, at Reply

    Conservative Counter arguments:

    1) Strawman the other side

    2) Tell everyone they are race baiting so you can ignore the racial issues
    our society faces

    3) Use hate and stereotypes

    4) Avoid facts and reality

    5) Rinse and repeat

    • Posted by Tanner William, at Reply

    • Posted by Lick Tasty, at Reply

      Tanner William
      To be fair, all you have to do for Liberals is replace “race-baiting” with
      “accuse of racism”. You’re two sides of the same coin and too stupid to
      realize it.

    • Posted by Tanner William, at Reply

      +Lick Tasty
      False equivalence, we human beings have a penchant for simple thinking in
      black and white like this, but the world is never that simple mang

    • Posted by Lick Tasty, at Reply

      +Tanner William They’re obviously not exactly the same, but the
      similarities in behavior and rhetoric between Conservatives and Liberals
      (really the right/left dichotomy in general) is pretty astounding. If 2016
      has taught me anything, it has taught me that.

    • Posted by Tanner William, at Reply

      *denial, denial, denial* if only I had all day to sit here and explain
      further that because someone has the same rhetoric, diction, and
      mannerisms, doesn’t make them equals. You have to look at their motivations
      for using said rhetoric/diction/mannerism and what their goals are – as I
      said simple black and white thinking like this…

      because of a “troll problem”, he refuses to accept that it’s because of the

      My mistake, your comment is a bit confusing and could be interpreted both

      SSanf – and then there’s the basket of pathetics who actually spend time &
      energy coming up with the scuzziest keyboard diarrhoea possible (in their
      very expansive minds), with the sole purpose of pissing people off. I
      personally know one of these specimens; he’s actually fairly intelligent
      and humane. A lot of the time his online comment “opinions” are completely
      made up just to bait progressives and other normal people; their responses,
      incl froth coming through from them foaming at the mouth, has him in
      absolute stitches! There’s no wanting to start a proper debate, playing
      devil’s advocate, expressing his true opinions etc reason, he does it
      simply because he CAN and staying anonymous is a huge part of it. I have no
      idea if you actually think all the anonymous radically opinionated
      commenters are just expressing their honest views (that’s one of the sad
      things about online writing; the beauty of sarcasm doesn’t always come
      through… big sigh…). I reckon there’s quite a few pathetically inclined
      people who just wanna express their a-holeness and anonymity is part of the
      CAUSE not some sort of facilitating factor.
