The Daily Show as Controlled Opposition: New Report Suggests Jon Stewart Secretly Met with Obama, Producing Slanted Content After the Fact That Favored the Presidents Image submitted by Zen0 to news

theghostofme 21 points 81 points (+102|-21) ago

Honestly, it seems like whoever wrote this article is really stretching to paint Stewart in a negative light, when, in reality, the two instances he was called into the White House and then did a segment that Obama had covered don't really show much collusion between the two.

If anything, all this "revelation" does is reinforce what was pretty well known from the get-go: that Jon Stewart's show leaned heavily left. That's not too surprising, nor does it take away from what the show managed to accomplish over Stewart's run. I seriously think the writer is just grasping at straws in an attempt to make it seem like The Daily Show was totally controlled by the White House over the last eight years.

Give it some time and they'll be trying to pull the same shit here.

True, but seeing as they're the exact reason why Voat was created in the first place, and the policies written the way they were, I highly doubt they'll be able to get as much traction as they did on Reddit.

The reason they were able to take control of Reddit the way they have is through using the same karma-whoring techniques as the power users of Digg combined with clever manipulation and intimidation tactics. By the time most average Redditors saw what was going on, these pieces of shit had snaked their way into every corner of the site, using their connections and IRC chat rooms as a means to maintain a consistent choke-hold over every sub they controlled while simultaneously pumping propaganda into every web page both on and off Reddit they could, all aimed to denounce any claims that SRS was anything other than a parody subreddit, and that anyone who thought otherwise was a racist, homophobic hatemonger. The specific problem with these lies is that there is a grain of truth in them; there's no denying the racist, homophobic hatemongering that did (and still does) occur both on Reddit and now on Voat, but where the truth ends is that none of this is close to the epidemic proportions that SRS and their ilk want everyone to believe.

The true epidemic is this SRS-like cancer that has now completely overtaken Reddit and so many other websites where everything is black and white, and if you're not with them, you're against them. There's very little room, anymore, for rational discussions about racism, homophobia, and all these other topics because both the SJWs and the anti-SJWs have exerted so much time and energy trying to discredit the other side that they're literally shitting all over the internet, and as a result, most people who just don't give a fuck one way or the other are left with very few places to enjoy the internet anymore.

While I very much like Voat, and stand behind the decision to never censor anything unless its illegal, it does get tiring to keep seeing this shit pop up over and over again. I mean, don't get me wrong, I totally get why it's so upsetting, as I'm just as annoyed with this latest takeover as the rest of you, but all I really want to do is just go back to what Reddit was (and what Voat can be) only five years ago, before people started taking it all too seriously.

Sorry, now I'm rambling on. I guess my point is that I wouldn't worry too much about these nutjobs getting such a tight grip on Voat like they did Reddit; the Voat team has had years worth of experience watching how these people infiltrate and take over everything they cast their ire at, and have set up enough checks and balances to ensure that the site, for the time being, is an even playing field. SRS is welcome to try, but I doubt they'll get very far.

Warlizard's comment about SRS brigading them is a perfect example of how toxic SRS is, and how the admins are doing everything in their power to justify that toxic subreddit's continued existence. Here's a copy in case the archive doesn't work for some reason:

Last week an SRS user went nearly four years into my history and posted this in /r/ShitRedditSays:

https://archive.is/w91N4

Taken with zero context, and without considering this happened in the midst of Reddit banning a few subs and /u/violentacrez getting doxxed, SRS users decided that I was tolerant of rape, or beating women, that I was lazy, a shit-poster, pandering to my "audience", suggested SRS users go to Amazon to see what a piece of shit I was, that I thought "rape" was "freedom of speech", and that I was objectively wrong and thought "freedom of speech" was moderating a website.

They hadn't bothered to read the rest of my comments, where I said "If this were MY company and these subreddits were on MY board, I'd delete them in a heartbeat, because I find them personally offensive."

I was banned from SRS years ago (not for commenting, just because one of the mods thought I should be -- that's their prerogative) so I messaged the SRS admins and asked for a chance to respond, considering this post was #1 in SRS.

As you can see, the only response was "ROFL".

/r/Fatpeoplehate was created to mock people based on a subjective perception.

/r/Coontown was created to mock people based on a subjective perception.

/r/Shitredditsays was created to mock people based on a subjective perception.

This is their stated purpose:

"Have you recently read an upvoted Reddit comment that was bigoted, creepy, misogynistic, transphobic, racist, homophobic, or just reeking of unexamined, toxic privilege? Of course you have! Post it here."

They exist to mock and harass Reddit users.

we are banning a handful of communities that exist solely to annoy other redditors, prevent us from improving Reddit, and generally make Reddit worse for everyone else.

Your words.

Please explain to me how holding other people up to ridicule without even allowing them to respond is good for reddit, encourages participation, and makes Reddit a safe place to express our opinions and ALSO differs from the subs you've banned.

EDIT: And this comment was already linked in SRS:

https://archive.is/akbTl

mfw /u/WarLizard pulls the "WHAT ABOUT SRS" card after being linked here. He regularly contributes to /r/KotakuInAction, not sure why he feels like he'd be welcome here at all. He's also complaining about the existence of SRS, so yeah right there he'd be banned. Oh no, a sexist/racist/homophobic/transphobic post was made and got linked here. WOULD ANYONE THINK OF THE RACIST'S FEELINGS?

This is a perfect example.

I have posted in KiA, and it has been fascinating to talk with the people there. Much like it has been fascinating to talk to the people in GamerGhazi.

But without context, someone might assume that because I've posted or commented there that I'm racist, misogynistic, transphobic, or maybe just an asshole. And suggesting that I think I'd be welcome in SRS, outside of responding to people talking about me there is ridiculous.

So with this extra data in mind, should I feel comfortable and safe posting in controversial subreddits? Or should I stay in the safe ones, stick my head in the sand, my fingers in my ears, and never discuss anything outside of cat pics?

Reddit has passed the point of circling the drain and is now in the garbage disposal. Won't be long before I never return.

I'm sorry, but no...the media didn't manipulate the masses and the polls weren't skewered.

Goddamn, you love Voat for a few weeks and you come back to this nonsense about Rand Paul's father being the next Jesus of the GOP.

C'mon, guys, we can do better than this, right?

Yes, because such degeneracy is something that Voat is far removed from...

FYI, the shills are here. submitted by Taka to Conspiracy

theghostofme 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago

Interesting how disagreeing opinions are seen as paid shills. So much for free open thought and thinking for one's self; guess this is just supposed to be an echo chamber where everyone agrees with the hive-mind and having a single dissenting thought is wrong.

Way to prove that this sub is no better than that shithole over on Reddit.
