Remove comments section
You've lost control of your comments section - it's packed with obviously automated bots spewing political slogans everywhere. Slogans which just so happen to be nearly identical to the drivel groups like the Russians spew all over Twitter. Whatever anti-bot safeguards you have in place, they are completely inadequate.
Once you consider how little the comments section adds to the experience - except, I suppose, as a source of propaganda that can be made to appear as if it comes from a variety of humans who perfectly agree with you - the obvious move seems to be simply getting rid of it.
I wholeheartedly agree with Charles and John Swain; I quite simply can not express my view nearly as articulately as they already have.
One small addition though, it has gotten to the point that I am going to stop reading any of your so called "News" and especially any of your "Comments."
I can easily get my news from legitimate websites.

I wrote my reason above. People are spreading lies, debunked propaganda, and conspiracy theories in the comment section.
I obviously don't know if these comments are written by half-witted Americans or foreign trolls, but the stupidity and lies are embarrassing and, much worse, they endanger our country by feeding on the gullible and uneducated. Care about something other than money, yahoo. .
