Social media's role in spreading hate

45 ratings | 2779 views
This week illustrates how people can become radicalized by "living in the fever swamps of the internet," Brian Stelter says. Oliver Darcy explains Gab, which the Pittsburgh shooting suspect used to post hateful messages. Julia Ioffe, who's been a target of anti-Semitism online, says the "buck stops with the president."

Nice try fake news. Free speech, regardless of the content is every citizens God given right. It’s that right that allows people full of hate to be exposed. Would you prefer to be the guy to decide what is “hate” speech and what is not? You’d probably want to silence people who think abortion is abhorrent or those of us who dislike socialism. No thanks Brian or Oliver. You can’t even do your job in an honest agenda free manner. I prefer to keep my rights (the 2nd amendment also)!

I guess CNN doesn't like competition with other hate groups. You're obviously to stupid to realize the amount of crap that comes out of your own "network". You should go back to the days of 2am news (Bill Tush) with a dog (don't remember the dog's name) as a co-anchor (look it up). Your ratings would go up if you would dig out some of Ted Turner's old re-runs from the 50's.

As someone with an Iranian heritage can I say that I am ashamed of Oliver Darcy. I deplore his tactics to silence journalists and shut down free speech even if it is Info Wars.if he put a turban on he would look just like the Ayatollahs who use their sermons to silence journalists.

Unfortunately Oliver Darcy has been conditioned my the mullahs in Iran whether he admits to it or not. Darcy has no understanding of the first amendment - and why would he given that democracy and tolerance of speech which you do not like is not something accepted in modern Iranian modern culture. If Darcy wasn’t working at CNN he would probably be working at the ministry of internal affairs in Iran where he would be shutting down news papers and jailing journalists.

Yeah, you think that your side is not spewing hate? You are fomenting it! You are nurturing it and they you are acting surprised when people become pissed off at you. Hate Group, Hate Speech and all of the above terms are not real. They are perceptions by people who have an agenda to reap the benefits of your creation of said "Hate". CNN, stop trying, no one believes you anymore. So we Trolls, Shitposters and Memers are going to continue making your lying asses hell until you stop. Believe it.

It's baffling that a government which is bringing record jobs increases, economic resurgence and stability has most of its countries corporate media trying to bring it down and to replace it with the radicalised leftist ideologies who now run the Democrat Party. They have done quite a job in making American citizens vote against their own interests.

CNN are fascist for trying to shut down free speech & putting a vail over it & calling it hate speech. CNN is fake news. They don’t even report the news anymore, it’s 25/8 propaganda.

Social media is polluted with Putin paid trolls, among others. Their entire intent is to create division. They are here in these comments.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_media_as_a_public_utility ....it's coming CNN and now that republicans have the SCOTUS, it'll happen. Get ready....
murph1329 (3 months ago)
So social media shouldn't be considered a public square when it comes to speech? WTF. This is a complete violation of the 1st. If you all want to see social media become a utility keep on banning accounts. The Gab thing is a big damn deal because everyone said if you don't like what company A or B is doing make your own....DONE....and now payment processing companies and hosting providers are blocking them, what's next ISPs?.....no, completely unacceptable and falls right in line with what liberals wanted in net neutrality, but guess what, now they're silent.

New American record. The fortune of Jeff Bezos, founder and owner of the Internet trading company Amazon, which is the richest person on our planet, fell by $ 19.2 billion in just two days. This figure was a record in the field of financial losses of billionaires of the world in such a short time, reports Bloomberg

CNN spreads anti-Russian, anti-Trump hate 24/7, and now they have the nerve to accuse Social Media? These people have no sense of awareness or self-reflection. Trump is 100% right to say YOU are the enemy of the people. You have no idea how much pain and suffering you have caused, and continue to cause on a daily basis. You don't give a shit. You are intoxicated by the power you have to control the narrative. You see yourself as gods being in charge of what people should think and know. You are disguting sub-humans. I do hope somebody blows your building into pieces, you deserve it. You have done far more harm and pain to others.

Hate is a mental problem. Everything in the world exists for a reason. Your hate does not eliminate that reason. Your hate does not make anything better. Why not ask what is good about hate? What is positive about hate?

If social media platforms are NOW suddenly responsible for sickos that go out and start murdering people! Then Twitter and facebook HAVE GOT A LOT TO ANSWER FOR and should be the first ones to be taken offline. you are spending more time trying to demonize a free speech platform than you are the deranged Wacko who murdered people. Your agenda is bloody obvious! you couldn't give a rats ass about the victims as long as you get to attack those that call your BS out! and YOU dress it up as news stories . You are FAKE NEWS & propaganda

what about all the hate speech towards white people there has been many accounts where people have targeted innocent white people for being white. hatred is hatred yet the mainstream media does not want to cover those stories. fact is that white people are tired of being shunned for being white for far to long. and people are taking action. i do not agree with any hatred but i will not stand when a race or someones background is being targeted, no matter what.
