Comments not welcome

Is it just me, or is it more and more that the liberal sites are not allowing comments in response to the stories they post online? Not sure, but it seems that a lot of stupid ass sh!t they post is closed to comments, unlike the past.

I noticed it in Vox and a few others but I didn't think it was just liberal thing.

It isn't, though like the "War on Christmas," it's sure to become a Right Wing fact. Vox to my knowledge doesn't have comment sections at all, or at least not one I've ever seen. All the others that I'm familiar with take any and all comments. Even comments about race, which as we know are forbidden here.

I've been noticing it here and there more often than in the past. Some that allow comments quickly lock it out as soon as people making comments against whatever the idiocy of the article proclaims.

Vox. GQ. Esquire (?) - they might allow comments on Facebook, but a pretty significant number of people avoid Zuckerberg's folly since he doesn't respect privacy, unless it is his privacy.

Found this online. Pretty interesting.

NPR for one and CNN, although CNN seems to pick and choose. Since posting this I've done some Googling and seems I'm not the only one that has noticed this phenomenon. There are several links talking about the same kind of thing.

Another article on it, although you liberal types probably think anything on Breitbart is 'fake news'.

CNN is great for that. when they know they will get questions that don't fit their needs, they won't allow comments. Or when they see the comments going against their liberal attitudes, they shut them down.

They have learned... all it takes is just ONE {reasonable} question and they are likely to EXPLODE.

Fox does it too, as stated looks like selective articles that they know will bring negative feedback. Not really against it, usually is just full of paid trolls anyway

Not true -- I know for a fact that there was once a guy named Andrew Breitbart.

This sounds like another "War on Christmas." I argue with Right Wingers on CNN's site, Fox, Breitbart, MSNBC, Slate, Salon all the time. On the other hand, I've had posts removed at one time or another. In fact, most recently by Breitbart.

Vampires at dawn ... Now that cracks me. Who'd a thought FXDRYDR was a "Twilight" fan.

And you proudly admit to that? What a way to spend your time or is it your job.
