@PuttItOut @Atko - the US media is compromised - v/news janitors are deleting alternative media like wikileaks' twitter account. Please, as the mods of @system, can you instruct @typo to remove rule #4 and let the community police it with votes. @disappointed @cynabuns

SRS would be too busy brigading posts to enforce the rule if their lapdog /u/unruly wasn't tattling every time someone posted twitter/facebook/reddit as a primary source on a Right-leaning news story when no other outlets are "covering" it (i.e. merely linking to the primary source and adding absolutely nothing to the story).

what is this? i thought it had been made crystal clear that the only content janitors are supposed to delete is spam?

do we need to define spam?

Sorry, I am in the habit of calling @system moderators "janitors". In this case it is wannabe reddit-mods @typo and @amyacker.

Why not just link to the site? Saves us all a step anyway.

The shutdown of wikileaks is news in and of itself. And the site itself has a ton of shit. This makes it easier. In any event the v/news mods should not have deleted this submission. Rule 4 has always had the problem of censoring outlets like this when "traditional media" is either shut down or compromised. The rule needs to become a guideline for users to enforce with their votes.
