Comment "known for its commitment to free speech" LOL (Score 1) 232

Are we talking about the same reddit? The reddit where The Intercept was not allowed on the world news or politics subreddits because of the reddit staff insisting it's "just a blog"? The same reddit that did PR cleanup for Hillary in october? If reddit was truly a bastion of free speech, Voat wouldn't have come about 2+ years ago.

Comment The CIA and FBI haven't blamed Russia (Score 1) 246

The Obama administration and state department, along with their security firm pals, are the ones blaming Russia. It's pretty clear to me that they are merely paying lip service_orf Clinton rather than publicly accusing Russia. The leaking of NSA tools from 2013--which very likely did have Russian involvement--was, according to Snowden (on twitter), a response to these accusations.

Comment Re: Does anybody ... (Score 1) 475

You mean, does anybody trust wikileaks after several successive rounds of leaks being admitted legitimate by the leaky party? Maybe you should check the news, but you probably won't like what you see. To answer your question, yes, plenty trust wikleaks, except those who only consume cable TV news are shilling for the establishment or clinton campaign on sites like this. I would be surprised if one of those two didn't describe you as well, Martin.

Comment "Paid shills for either side" LOL (Score 1) 232

Everyone knows there's no money to warrant shilling for Palestinians. Israeli government-sponsored shilling, on the other hand, is a proven fact. Israel was adept enough to hire trolls back in the 2000s, before even the US government got around to it.

So no need for the "both sides" false equivocation. There's only one side, much like everything else between Israel and Palestine, when it comes to money.

Comment "inflammatory content" == whatever angers Israel (Score 1) 232

So you can bet that on-the-ground footage showing excessive force by IDF and the like can be deemed "inflammatory". Israel's PR cleaners are panicking that the state doesn't have the control over western media that it once did, thanks to the advent of social media.
