A lot of the NSFW images posted there are actually from the shills (bots/trolls) that are trying to shut it down.
Considering how much social media sites like Youtube are deleting or demonetizing channels that either "conspiratorial" or "alt-right" in orientation, all of this looks like no accident.

Call me a conspiracist, but "the powers that be" are really going into overdrive to prevent certain ideas from catching on with the general public

Mostly they are filtering out news sources like infowars which are a favorite among many on CD. What "ideas" are they preventing from catching on. Many didn't even no they were looking at fake Russians on Facebook during 2016 and didn't even know it. Its a shame so many people use social media in the first place and use it as a primary news source rather than respected news sources.

When 2% of your population controls 80% of your media - you got a problem.

I never listen to the news since I don't watch TV and I don't watch on-line news feeds. Everything I get is from reading. I sometimes read opinion pieces but I take them for what they are - opinions, not news.

Who says it is supposed to be unbiased? Some news outlets try to make the claim that they are unbiased but most are unashamed of their political bias.

As to "fake news" - that term is so over-used it is now meaningless. Trump uses it to describe any outlet that is critical of him. Some people use that term to mean "biased", but as I said above, all media is biased, from CNN to FOX to Breitbart. It is the way people are. Get over it.

Why does the right even care about MSM? So what if it is biased, you keep saying Trump is gonna win in 2020 so even if MSM is biased it is not having any effect on how the voters feel, according to the right.

AP/Reuters.
Very respectable, unbiased. And most of the other news sources just rehash their stories anyway.

That is not true at all, plenty of solid news and investigative reporting from other media the Miami reporter on Epstein for instance. The media is key to our democracy. Reuter’s is one paragraph no depth.

LMAO at people who are posting mainstream media. Oh, Lord. No wonder our government isn't worried about the population ever getting wise to their b.s.

I like The Epoch Times so much that I pay for a real 'get my fingers inkstained' newspaper. Wonderful, long, researched articles. Their arts and culture section is outstanding. I've made several recipes from their Food section. An Opinion section is labeled Opinion, unlike left wing legacy media like NY Slimes and Washington Poo pretending to be unbiased.

Free Chinese started this paper a few years ago I think. They do a lot of reporting on China that is hard hitting, unlike mainstream media


You can read most articles for free online. Check it out.
