Guardian Newspaper: Bad Moderators?

Recommended Posts

The Guardian Newspaper, has a long history of banning any comments under their articles, which point the finger at the Labour Party.

Even if those comments are perfectly acceptable elsewhere, and are not in breach of the Guardians rules regarding posted comments.

The moderators do not offer a balanced perspective.

For Instance.

Just posted a passing comment on a couple of threads this morning.

It really winds me up, when you see these students, screaming Tory Scum, Lib Dem Liars.

So they have to repay a few thousand increase in fees, after they have left full time education, and are in full time employment.

So what?!

As an ex student priced out of housing, for over a decade. We have had that much debt pushed onto us, every few months, for over ten years, as house prices have continuosly risen.

Do these students not realise that as soon as they leave the cosy confines of Uni, or college and enter the real world, they will be forced to take on a mortgage and pay for a house, that is [probably] one hundred thousand pounds more than it should be?!

All Thanks to the Labour Party. Who are Directly responsible for this debt.

The very party, who have the shortsighted, stupid, National Union of Students in their pocket.

My Comments were immediately removed by the moderators, and everytime I sign in now, the following message is under my details:

All Your comments are being premoderated.

However, the amount of vitriolic bile, swearing, inacurate information, that is published against the coalition is perfectly acceptable to the Guardian Moderators.

Q. Can anyone point out to me how my comment has breached the Guardians Blog Policies?

I have to say, being banned from Free Speech by one of the biggest newspapers in the Country really does tick me off.

Just remember that to the champagne socialists that read the Guardian or control the BBC it is cool to express yourself, violently if neccessary, but only if you agree 100% with their Camden dinner party Fabian agenda.

If not, you are a racist, fascist scumbag who has no right to be heard. If you are an indigenous white male from a working class background who is seeking to improve himself without the help of the state times that by ten.

Sorry to burst your bubble but you dont have free speech posting on a company's site. Its no different from me booting you out of my house for talking socialist drivel.

Exactly!

The elite contol your lives minutely thru their wholly owned media, Govt 'fronts', council harrassment Common Purpose gangstas and Big Business.

They know what you are doing, where you are, at what time, your financial position and count every bottom burp you let out - thru their scam of "Anti-Terrorism laws"!

You get regularly tested with surveys - "The State of the Nation", Cameron's latest "Happiness" piss-take etc!

It's a fair comment and should have been published. Premoderated hey? so they are fearful you might start a movement.

One thing that really ticks me off is that the proles have been conditioned into holding a particular kind of political allegiance in order that we fight amongst ourselves while the masters of the universe sit back laughing as they pull the rug from under our feet time and time again and the proles dust down and pick-up where they left off and carry on attacking each other. All the tit-tat about being a socialist wanting a rolls royce handed to them on a plate for being lazy is nonsense and just because someone chooses not to religiously support LibLabCon or be allied to any political movement.

And no I am not a socialist either.

I don't approve of the Guardian censoring your comment, though I can see that asserting that because you were/are screwed by high house prices means that its OK for students to be fvcked over for punitive tuition fees is not logical. These students, assuming they agree to pay through the nose and go to 'cosy Uni' will probably get the high house prices and poor employment prospects on top. You have had it much better than them fee-wise, but you think that whatever is thrown at them they should just bend over and take it.

I can no longer bring myself to read the Guardian for just this type of behavior. Tuition fees will be paid by the rich and will benefit the poor, but the Guardian can't do enough to undermine the policy -- a policy which they should support if they were honest in their motivations. Same thing with the child benefit cuts. They couldn't scream any louder to protest the end of income transfers from the poor to the rich. The Guardian is nothing but a mouthpiece for Labour hacks and public sector troughers. It's neither progressive, nor liberal once you get past the hot air. My last comment there was immediately censured -- I had the temerity to point out that Will Hutton wasn't exactly unbiased on arguing for more public spending, as the think tank that he'd bankrupted through his £185k a year salary had just been bailed out by a publicly-funded university and that university was now subsidizing his pension.

It is, but it rather sticks in the throat when no one will moderate their journos from going on air and spouting their 5h1te everywhere.

Good point, reader discretion shouldn’t be restricted to the column inches.

Count yourself lucky. I once read an article in the Evening Standard that I regarded as so outrageous that I emailed them in disgust. The next day the paper published two letters with opposing views on the article. As obviously no one had written in to support the tosh the journalist had written they simply edited my letter so heavily that it read like I was supporting her.

Console yourself with the knowledge that no one actually has to pay to read the drivel in the Evening Standard any more and, very soon, no one will pay for the Guardian either. These days you can share information and opinion in a million different ways rather than silently accept the perspective of professional journalists and their paymasters.

It wouldn't be so bad if the Guardian actually employed "professional" journalists.

My favourite example of Guardian amateurism -- a couple years ago, there was an article asking readers to write in with questions on sexual health which the Guardian's experts would answer. One guy wrote in wondering if he should feel inadequate due to an endowment of 6". Their answer: Yes, he should because scientific surveys have shown that the average ***** length is 7.5 inches and he was clearly letting his girlfriend down.

I think there might have been a noticeable uptick in male suicides the following week.

That might not be a bad thing as long as it was their elite fascists readers :ph34r: .

I very rarely post on the Grauniad because I know from experience so many of my posts are deleted.

If you are abusive of actively encouraging violence, then maybe there is a case for posts to be removed. Otherwise, there is no excuse for it.

I stick with the ToryGraph, who do incidently allow leftie socialist trolls to post there without any problem

The Grauniad is a $hitty rag anyway.

Think about it for a minute. The moderator is bound to be a junior at the Guardian, fresh out of Uni from a meeja studies degree, probably involved with the NUS at some stage. This isn't quite the job they expected so they decided to use the little power that they had to annoy you which probably was the highlight of their tedious little day. What else did you expect?

Its a reminder that news sites are about selling advertising and copy, not free speech (a ******** concept in itself)

The Torygraph have a similar level of Right wing crap. There is an American woman who attracts the worst red necks form the US. I find them so twisted that I can't even begin to understand WTF they are talking about.

But its makes the Telegraph money by getting US page views so good luck to them

Also, people read the newspaper that they agree with. They don't want some one giving them crap as they are never going to change their views based on your comments

I was banned years ago when I commented on the remarks made by the US military spokesman regarding two suicides at Guantanamo Bay. I wasn't allowed back in, as I recall. I guess my comment was a bit over the top but then the remark that the suicides were 'an act of war' was OTT also, imo.

Oh gawd - please dont go over there and start winding them up... all that will happen is that they will come over here - and the bleating of Labour scum (as I now call them) just becomes tedious. Don't get me wrong - I'm all for intelligent debate and opposing views. On house prices especially, but F***ing labour scum (as I now call them) don't have anything to add to debate and just trot out the same old line time after time after time... they make the bulls look positively inventive and intelligent.
