Is Reddit censoring positive Donald Trump content? That’s what a report from right-wing publication Infowars is claiming.
It appears as if Reddit is trying to hide pro-Trump content from new forum members, as the story says that “Reddit is banning the vast majority of pro-Donald Trump posts from appearing on its ‘most popular’ page frequented by new users.”
If this is true, why would they be doing it?
Apparently, Reddit recently stated that they would be choosing which content showed up in the “popular” section of the site, and it looks as if a side effect of this move is no more positive Trump posts.
According to Infowars’ Kit Daniels, who authored the report, when a graph is drawn up showing which content Reddit staff are eliminating from their “popular” section, “The_Donald” is overwhelmingly taken out more than other topics.
