In the announcement Al Jazeera said, “The mission of Al Jazeera is to give a voice to the voiceless, and healthy discussion is an active part of this.”
So they’re disabling comments, naturally. Why? RAYCUS TROLLS!
“…the comments section was hijacked by users hiding behind pseudonyms spewing vitriol, bigotry, racism and sectarianism. The possibility of having any form of debate was virtually non-existent.”
The Qatari state media cannot exist alongside the truth, which is now overwhelmingly gleaned from the comment section rather than the content itself. So they’ll join the rest of the fake news and shut it down so they can continue spreading propaganda that stirs racial tension and undermines western societies.
