Russia may block YouTube and Instagram after video with model goes viral

Russia may block YouTube and Instagram after ‘graft’ video with model, deputy PM and billionaire goes viral

Quote:
Russia may block access to YouTube and Instagram after billionaire Oleg Deripaska won a court injunction against videos and photographs that showed him and Deputy Prime Minister Sergey Prikhodko relaxing on a yacht with a woman described as an escort.

Deripaska won an order from Ust-Labinsk court in his native Krasnodar region ordering the removal of 14 Instagram posts and seven YouTube videos that breached his right to privacy, according to a spokeswoman for his company, Basic Element.

Anti-Kremlin campaigner Alexey Navalny said the order also threatens to block his website after he published an online film alleging that the videos and photographs posted by the woman, who calls herself Nastya Rybka, showed evidence of a corrupt relationship between the aluminium tycoon and the senior minister.

Russian communications watchdog Roskomnadzor included the materials on its register of blacklisted sites following the court order.

The best part about statements like this is that both sides say it about the other one's candidate.

And I think they're both probably right.

Yeah but one side mostly just wishes they could censor idiots from spouting actual lies like flat earth nonsense. The other wants to censor "fake news".

Ah yes, the "Censorship is okay if it's censoring stuff I don't like." argument.
Censorship is never okay, no matter who's doing it.

Besides. The best part about freedom of speech is that it lets us know who we should avoid, as soon as they start speaking.

You miss one important difference; one side has been trying [and this isn't their first go] to censor the NEWS they don't like, while the other is just trying to get rid of hate speech [which is more akin to assault, which is a crime].

The First Amendment was specifically for journalism; even if it applies to all of us, it was to defend the write for the news to tell us the low down, no matter how it made the government look.

It isn't "things I don't like."

Its lies vs facts.

You want to go and talk about I dunno, Lord of the Rings, where its a story and known to be, great, have fun with that. You don't get to start some sort of cult of idiots who think Dragons were a real thing and try to push world changing agenda with Dragon based motivations.

The same goes for all this bull shit conspiracy shit thats been flying around lately like Autism vaccines, Flat Earth, Climate Change denial. Feel free to consider the fictional parts of your fictions, but fuck off with your preying on idiots with headlines and lies on Facebook.

Its not even a war on intellectualism anymore, its a war on basic common sense. And somehow the idiots are winning, because everyone has gotten too soft to just tell people to stop being retarded or fuck off with lies.

Buy hey, we've got to "question everything", because its all just a huge conspiracy to keep the "truth" down.

You want to spout insane stuff like the earth is flat? Go for it, nobody will stop you. There is no end to people who will have fun arguing why you are wrong.

You want to insist that a round earth is lies, all lies, and only people who have drunk the kool-aid will believe it? Well, you took the gloves off first.

There is a difference between you having the right to say something and you saying something about anyone who disagrees with you. Especially when the facts are not on your side.

That is what annoys me about climate change deniers and people with vaccine conspiracy theories. Both of them have very real implications for people not involved with your fairy tale. You want to hop up and down about another shape of the earth? Go for it. The only person that could be possibly harmed is the one spouting such a story and other people who believe it. Take vaccines, you are decreasing herd immunity.

How about ISP's walling off the internet into gardens? How do you feel about that? Coming soon to the internet, courtesy of the GOP.

Reminds me of that line from that movie, "Are such a loser that you can't see when you've won?"

You're so caught up on trying to be right, you can't see when someone is agreeing.

Seems to be a theme around here.
