Sadly, even an outlet like Indymedia.ie, which you might think would TRY to promote free expression and responsible consideration of opposing views, is obviously controlled by editors who have a bias toward certain things and who exercise their prejudice by deleting stories which do not agree with their opinion. I’m not even talking about extreme views which might fall outside the law.

This is NOT the hallmark of a news source or an outlet which calls itself an ‘Independent Media Centre…for the creation of radical, accurate, and passionate tellings of the truth’ and then goes on to criticise ‘corporate media’s distortions and unwillingness to cover the efforts to free humanity’.

What a load of rubbish. Indymedia.ie only posts what its editors agree with even if you submit something in standard English with references to factual evidence concerning issues which hundreds of people believe in and are concerned about. This is clearly distortion and censorship.

You cannot even post a dissenting opinion as a COMMENT with links for reference. It WILL be deleted. You’ll have better luck disagreeing and supporting your case by posting a comment on any other major news outlet.

This is truly repugnant and sad and makes Indymedia.ie no better than any other corporate-controlled media outlet. In fact, it makes it worse because you EXPECT more from Indymedia.
