Discussion forum censorship on The Daily Mail?

293 comments  Add a comment

I'm getting a little fed up with the Daily Mail website.  This is something that happens to me quite a lot and I believe it also happens on other discussion forums out there.  When I see an article that is of interest to me I'll often want to add a comment, but on some of the stories they are censored even though what I'm saying is a valid point.  Why does this happen?

One story appeared recently saying that there is research out saying chest x-rays are not always successful in diagnosing early stage lung cancer and that some patients may need to go back for further x-rays.

Did my comment on the forum get published?

Someone commented that this is yet more evidence that the NHS was a complete failure.  As an x-ray student I thought I'd reply and put the message straight.

I said that this is a piece of research which is pointing out that our current methods of diagnosing lung cancer are not always successful and should be taken on board so we can improve best practice.  Did my comment on the forum get published?  No, of course it didn't!

Normal Xray of chest. Heart in the centre. Personally, I feel that there is far too much censorship today and that otherwise valid, sensible and relevant points of view are being ignored.

I read a while back on The Daily Mail says that 'education standards are falling.'  Well, if they are going to encourage incorrect viewpoints on their website and not publish anything from anyone who looks like they know what they're talking about, I'm not surprised that people are lacking in the grey cells department!

Over the years, I have had some comments removed, because someone has complained. Then re-instated, but what the complaint was there is no indication.

Now over the past three days, the ability to input comments has been removed. I have reported this to the DM Tech and yet there is still not action. This happens on all browsers, so have I been banned or is there a problem with their site?

Daily mail is a shill propaganda website, they put some real news, but then mix in these agenda driven garbage stories. They try and change people perceptions of society. Eveything they push lines up perfectly with globalist jewish shills. Billionaires make bigger profit when families break down, immigration goes wild, etc etc

Can't believe I'm saying this but agree with "sideways". This make no sense at all, after all the days and days of glowing press plus the media never called them out on gaffes, blunders like why did Harry walk Diana's footsteps AGAIN - he did this in 2013 to much hoopla and they gave it to him again. Media gave them a pass only to be hit with a lawsuit. They should ban together and agree to eliminate the Sussex duo from royal coverage. This will not end well at all.

As disgusted as I get with DM and their banning process, got to say I'm siding with DM on this lawsuit brought by Meghan Markle. She wants privacy when she wants it and to manipulate the press by leaking information just like Diana did. Harry says the media is bullying her yet the media was glowing in its coverage of the recent tour. Harry needs to understand it's not the media but the people who dislike and have no respect for either of them. The people Harry, not the media.

been taking a break from the mail recently. the only point in going on there is to point out all the shit that gets published/posted. but a lot gets moderated or banned. they only like it if you post "I don't want to live in this country anymore", or "no words"

Most readers know that the Daily Mail is paid for celebrity coverage -a HUGE no no in journalism but things different online. This is evident with 12 years of glowing Kardashian coverage. Seems Meghan Markle's team has caught on - today you'd think she was named the Queen of England - lead story, glowing, fawning coverage and moderated comments skewed to look like the people love her - what money can buy these days is amazing.

Don't know when you posted this but it still goes on today. Post a fact and it'll not get through moderation. I've also found that posting views not in line with the papers right wing bias sometimes also don't appear.

I boycotted DM for a long time due to its very apparent leanings toward the left, reporting false news plus never retracting when things turned out to be false -i.e. Covington kids; supporting Jussie Smollett which turned out to be a hoax. Someone told me this week that there have been changes at DM and it's back to at least attempting to provide balanced reporting. This week I've checked it out and agree something is changing. I'll see how it goes.

Im looking for article like this. Got banned today... have like 80thousand likes and only 10thousand dislikes... got banned for idk what may be offensive? I dont even remember what im commenting but its mostly moderate and sensible. Dailymail become such wuss especially with jonas article that priyanka, she thinks shes above everyone. Got deleted once in that article. And also that nicole swashzinger got deleted many time just by calling her desperate. Never want to look at her stupid article everytime it came out. To the senior editor: FU.

On articles where a white person commits a crime against a black DM's headline will read "White man.....against black man. When that situation is reversed there is no mention of race. That in itself I consider to be racist and wonder how DM gets away with it.

I too suffer from being blacklisted from commenting on a number of subjects to DM articles. One expects to have some comments un-published from time to time, but a blanket ban is blatant censorship. For example I am not permitted to post comments or replies to articles dealing with Islam and Muslims - even though some of my comments have been quoting passages from the Koran.

On July 31 DM ran a story with headline "Prince William and Kate Middleton join Google Camp" Only problem was there was no fact checking and it turned out to be false. Nine hours later DM runs another story "Kate and William did NOT go to Camp Google for A-list" and blames it on Italian media. DM has egg on face...again. My guess is the Palace raised a fuss as well it should since information was false.
