    How does an article get 30 downvotes in 15 minutes?

      Because this god awful bullshit story isn’t worth the photons carrying it to my eyes.

      Fauci is an American hero that worked tirelessly to save lives from AIDS, swine flu, Ebola, and COVID, but COVID made it clear orange God-king was a moron, so people like you invent stupid conspiracy theories to discredit him.

      Cause it is trash.

      Media Bias doesn’t seem to have an entry for thefp.com, which is a red flag. That the website calls themselves the free press and has nothing to do with the Free Press organization, sure seems like they are trying to confuse that on purpose. Using a Rand Paul comment as a source in support of an article problematic (he’s a real life unreliable narrator and one of many idiots in congress). The current house subcommittee the article relies on has been criticized for good reason. Lots of opinion mixed in that is not commentary on the facts. Self citation isn’t the win they think it is with the other issues.

      Could the article be right? Sure. Is this an article that would convince me of that? No. An article with reputation of reporting from the center, or near center, with the same or similar conclusions and the it is worth discussion. Otherwise this article was a waste of storage and time.

      You’re kidding, right? I’m surprised it doesn’t have more, but I guess plenty of people are just going to block and not bother downvoting or commenting when they see Bari Weiss clickbait nonsense.

        Reddit spent many years establishing relatively consistent modding for the big subreddits, and the big subreddits were far bigger than the Fediverse equivalents are yet. It just takes time to sort out.

          I hope that’s what’s happening. It will be a huge fail if this place turns into the cesspool Reddit was/is.

            Fortunately there are multiple instances, so multiple worldnews communities, none of which is the “official” one. If this one turns into a cesspool then oh well, switch to one of the others as your main source of news.

              This kind of thing festers like a disease and before we know it the entire community is full of Kremlin trolls, bigots and dangerous conspiracy theorists. Seen quite a few instances like this recently. I hate it.

                IIRC kbin allows users to ban instances, so even if those don’t defederate they can be made to “go away” for individual users. Maybe Lemmy will get that ability too, it seems like a good idea.
