NPR is killing off comments. That’s great news! … NPR made a big announcement Wednesday: It is ending its users’ ability to offer comments at the bottom of each story posted on its site. “We’ve reached the point where we’ve realized that there are other, better ways to achieve the same kind of community discussion around the issues we raise in our journalism,” Scott Montgomery, NPR’s managing editor of digital news, explained.

No, it is not terrific news that NPR is going to ban feedback to its articles.
No doubt the move is being made because NPR leaves out so many facts in its articles. And the feedbacks tend to be a good deal more informative than the articles themselves.
The basic issue with NPR, like all the mainstream media, is that it doesn’t grapple with the fundamental issue of globalization.
The world is run by banking interests mostly located in London’s City. These interests control central banking around the world and have at their disposal literally trillions of dollars.
Don’t believe it?
During the 2008-2009 financial crisis, Ben Bernanke sent $16 trillion around the world to ensure the current system didn’t crash.
When the Fed was audited, this money was revealed. In 2011, Bernie Sanders posted the results on his website, HERE.
The first top-to-bottom audit of the Federal Reserve uncovered eye-popping new details about how the U.S. provided a whopping $16 trillion in secret loans to bail out American and foreign banks and businesses during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. An amendment by Sen. Bernie Sanders to the Wall Street reform law passed one year ago this week directed the Government Accountability Office to conduct the study.
“As a result of this audit, we now know that the Federal Reserve provided more than $16 trillion in total financial assistance to some of the largest financial institutions and corporations in the United States and throughout the world,” said Sanders. “This is a clear case of socialism for the rich and rugged, you’re-on-your-own individualism for everyone else.”
If Bernanke can simply print up and sent $16 trillion around the world (illegally), imagine the power and wealth of those who actually control central bank facilities via the Bank for International Settlements that coordinates central bank policy.
There is a whole separate government functioning in the world today that has nothing to do with regular politics or the supposed policies that are conducted by governments.
The world’s real “controllers” want global government and using the astonishing funds of central banks have installed a system that works every day to push the world in this direction.
Universities have been corrupted with this money, as have think tanks, the media, government agencies, politicians, scientists and generals. Virtually every area of public and private life is now controlled by shadowy forces that coordinate and propel an ongoing, massive internationalization.
Here at DB, we try to reveal this unprecedented, historical conspiracy and to put it into context.
But NPR, being a mainstream facility controlled by these forces doesn’t put anything in context at all. As a result, ironically, NPR’s readers and commentators – informed by the Internet – understand a lot more than NPR intends to reveal.
NPR’s feedbackers often expose what is really taking place. Solution: The feedback is being offloaded to Facebook among other facilities. Facebook is basically controlled by the CIA and thus feedbacks inimical to the current mainstream dialogue will gradually be phased out.
You won’t learn anything like this from the Washington Post article, though. The Post is controlled by the same people controlling NPR. When it comes to this commentary, the “blind” lead the “blind.”
What the comments section actually is in this supercharged partisan media environment is a mudpit where the only rule is there are no rules. And, by definition when fighting in a mudpit, no one comes out clean. So, good on you, NPR for taking a stand against comments sections.
The idea here is that comments are too costly to moderate and too difficult to control. But as we’ve just pointed out, feedbacks represent the only alternative viewpoints at most mainstream websites.
The Internet, through the release of a flood of economic, sociopolitical and military information has provided those who wish to look with an increasingly accurate understanding of what’s really going on. It’s quite astonishing and unprecedented when you understand it.
But NPR and other mainstream reporting entities are now making sure reality will not compromise their increasingly misleading posts.
Conclusion: They are not interested in promoting the truth. They are banishing it.
