Don't censor, gaslight or disable commenting!!
Disabling commenting on controversial articles (like the catholic priest comments criticizing Trump for Capitol Hill break-in) is censoring to avoid controversial speech and implicitly gaslighting the audience. You publish misguided or uninformed speech (the poor priest has been gaslit by you and the rest of the media regarding authors of the break-in and he doesn't realize it). You do this to substantiate your gaslighting and to continue the deception and don't allow the public to correct it via comments. Shame on you for this blatant and fascistic manipulation of public opinion. The investigation is not complete, but points to substantial preplanned actions by non-Trump-supporting actors (see e.g. National Pulse). If you were being honest, you would include these clarifications in the article.
