Its not hard to  notice the increased censorship lately, I just went to read another thread, the one about Robin Williams and the OPs video was removed from YouTube and it made me think of this topic.

 

FaceBook is now playing games so stories they don't like don't go viral, they don't even try and hide it anymore.

You need arch support ! Why to make my arches weak so that way I really do ?

Will wearing a neck brace all day make my neck stronger too ?

Maybe keeping my arm in a sling will strengthen my biceps.

uhhhmmmm, as far as I know youtube is not news and neither is facebook, both are private enterprises and can do what the fuck they like concerning censorship,

so what is the problem again, besides your ignorance of how this type of stuff works.

uhmm, ok, equating youtube or facebook with "news" is asinine and mainstream media is much more trustworthy than youtube or facebook, and if you suspect the facts of a story, check them out for for yourself, it isn't that difficult.

why the hell haven't people realized that?

 

 

guess it's easier to imagine some nefarious plot with evil villainous characters pulling strings and manipulations behind our backs, it sure does alleviate a ceretain degree of personal responsibility to always blame some invisible boogy-man.

TBH, other than HF, FB is the place I get my news.

But have no fears!!! I don't believe a word of it and I only read the headlines.

There is no news as far as I'm concerned. Just more lies. Ones man promise is another mans lie and I've no time for it. :)

If it's BIG news, I'm sure I'll hear about it.

Because believe it or not, YouTube consists of citizen journalists who have cited their credible sources, and use footage from events that the MSM would rather you not see. Because they'd rather lie to you to push their agenda, than use principled journalism.

don't be so naive as to assume I do not realize and understand the value inherit in such "citizens viewpoints", but I am also intelligent enough to use discernment when considering the trustworthiness and credibility of sources, something you haven't yet exhibited with the sources you cite.

 

why do you quote asinine and bullshit stats/sources whenever the actual data is so readily available?

as I have stated to many people over the last few months, doing so only makes you look foolish.
