I used the CD player a surprisingly large amount. It's funny how easy it is to forget, but that really was a big selling point to the console.

No, but you can see through the sarcasm, the memes, the jokes, and ignore those - which form most of the contradictions.

Why would they want to censor that SOOO badly?

  1. Respect for the victims. Since it's a very personal attack and video, compared to say 911 where you can't see people's faces.
  2. Misguided attempt at moralising.
  3. Misguided attempt to prevent "copycats"
  4. Opportunity to extend censorship powers

What's really interesting to me is how it is allowing the news media to literally lie and misreport facts about the incident. The video and manifesto were immediate and direct evidence of what was happening/had happened, and the media did not report accurately at all in the early days, and now in the aftermath is still not reporting accurately stating things like "the killer wanted to be famous" even though his manifesto literally says that he "will be forgotten and doesn't matter".

Is this because the media are incompetent? Is it because they can't get a hold of the evidence to do their jobs because of the censorship? Or is it to control how the reporting is done?

The message is beyond dichotomous.

If you read the entire manifesto, it's full of contradictions and crafted statements. I firmly believe that the manifesto was written by the attacker, alone, and that he wrote it purposely to troll and cause as many problems as possible in the aftermath.

I don't think there's some big conspiracy or any crazy shit, it's just this guy wanted to troll almost everyone.

alleged political views

actually, this part of the manifesto was pretty clear, he's an ethno-nationalist and eco-fascist. There's not really much doubt about this. What's annoying is how poorly the media report on it attributing ridiculous motives and other desires when it's literally written down for them.

This sub looks like a mess. What's going on? by betacollector64 in piracy

Yup, champion for doing this.
