Netflix Trailer For Nobody Speak Gets Harsh Criticism For Defending Fake News
Netflix Nobody Speak
(Last Updated On: June 18, 2017)

People aren’t buying into the propaganda of fake news anymore; it was a defining point that made people spite-vote for Trump, an issue that helped propel #GamerGate globally, and now seems to be affecting Netflix. Subscribers of Netflix are threatening cancellations if the streaming service keeps focusing on issues that appeal to Social Justice Warriors, such as defending the current wave of fake news being propagated by the establishment media.

The trailer for Nobody Speak isn’t very long but it’s very poignant. It attempts to portray news journalism as being under attack from billionaire interest groups and that it’s at risk of being subverted by corporatists.

Average viewers aren’t buying it.

Critical feedback on the YouTube page is rife with criticisms of a political nature, with a lot of people saying that Gawker deserved to burn and shutdown due to their invasive reporting and tabloid-style muckraking.

The downvotes on the trailer says everything.

There’s also a debate about Trump feeding information to the Russians in order to secure the election (although I have no idea how people can still believe this when he wasn’t even President before he got elected and had nothing worthwhile to send them), while others unanimously agreed that Gawker biting the dust was definitely praise-worthy and anyone defending Gawker’s invasive and tawdry reporting is defending shoddy journalism.




When nearly half the people are angry and downvoting the trailer and reacting negatively, something is definitely wrong.

Some people tried to use the excuse that the trailer isn’t the whole documentary and that they should wait and see it first before judging, however they were quickly shot down by people stating that the whole point of the trailer is to convey what the documentary is about and if it’s about defending the current fake news in establishment media then it isn’t worth watching.

One thing worth pointing out is that establishment media has taken on a stark pro-Social Justice Warrior stance, creating either false narratives or disinformation to rile people up and create racial, class, gender, and political tension amongst people. So far it’s working.

People, however, have become increasingly angry at the slant taken in news media, so much so that reports indicate that trust in news media is at an all time low. This has also played into raising the stress levels in America, as inflammatory content spread through social media has burdened the average person with more stress than in years past.

Netflix throwing in their lot with supporting unethical journalism and attacking those who have taken mainstream media to task for fake news, lopsided reporting and disinformation campaigns, has led some people to threaten to cancel their Netflix subscription. This is despite the fact that Netflix just recently surpassed cable when it comes to subscriber counts, according to Fortune.


The rest of the comment section pretty much plays out like the comments above.

A few people try to defend Netflix, stating that those watching the trailer shouldn’t form opinions until they watch the documentary, but most people with common sense are having none of it.

Since #GamerGate happened back in 2014 — a grassroots movement fighting back against unethical journalism — the news media has really ratcheted up their slanted take on the news, even attempting to puppeteer the public’s political voting patterns, but it backfired much to their chagrin.

I wonder if Netflix will greenlight a documentary looking into the uneven and slanted take on the news that the mainstream have adopted lately, or would that go against their current agenda? Then again, they already put the axe to Cassie Jaye’s The Red Pill, as reported by Natural News, so it’s doubtful that they’ll even bother with a documentary that exposes the narrative of the mainstream media.

    Just to clarify on my comment (I’m gingergreek, my friend linked me this article because I feature, anyway) I’m in no doubt the media is bought, it’s exactly why the mainstream media doesn’t have proper journalists and just has mouthpieces that read a prompter. It is a known fact that the media outlets are owned by corporations with self interests etc. But my point was that Thiel does not count in this scenario because his privacy was completely violated. Gawker had NO right to out him, as they had no right to publish Hogan’s sex tape. What the Gawker did throughout its time was indefensible and has no right to claim ‘free speech’. Gawker was just a gossip site and should never be considered journalism

  • RetroGamer

    Ironically enough, it’s the MSM that’s having a ménage à trois with corporations and certain politicians.

    Cancelled my sub at the start of this month. I regret not doing it earlier. There was just too much bullshit going on that I couldn’t abide paying for anymore. Refusing to put the Red Pill on the rotation, but pushing propaganda like that “documentary” about Syria’s White Helmets and removing the star system after Amy Schumer’s shitty “comedy” special got publicly ridiculed was the final straw for me.

    And they can spin whatever narrative they want, but they for sure got rid of the star rating system because Ms. Piggy cried to them about it. After that you couldn’t tell which movies were worthwhile and which ones were shlock. This may sound a bit spergy, but the other thing that made me cancel was how they kept adding shitty TV shows that would take almost a year to update with newer episodes. I got Netflix in the first place for movies, not TV shows, and as time went on it became clear TV shows were being favored over movies. I remember when I first got Netflix there was a good selection of old and new movies to watch; before I cancelled they had a godawful selection of really bad movies that only got replaced by worse ones every 5 months. This shit with them trying to protect the fake news media is nice proof that I made the right choice.

  • MONAD

    I’m THIS fucking close to cancelling my Netflix account. I stick around because of the DVD rentals, and they have a variety of shit, but between this kind of shit and “Dear White People”, I’m very close to being fucking done.

    • ThyPancakeConsumed

      While i am not that much familar with Netflix, i know it started as service where you can find show or movie and watch it as long as you had subscription. Millions of people gave them money for that, not for pushing propaganda/agendas. Cancelling accounts which in turn (if i am correct) results in loss of money, is only way to send message to them.
      People used and made Netflix as big and influencial, because it offered entertainment and escape, not propagandas to make your stress levels go up.

  • Alistair

    I was once with Netflix so not buying a sub to get FAKE NEWS SJWs Agenda.

    “It attempts to portray news journalism as being under attack from
    billionaire interest groups and that it’s at risk of being subverted by

    Lol as if they have not been there already. Yeah i dont have anything to say, the last 2 youtube comments you posted on the article perfectly capture my thoughts. So this is about facebook? NOPE this is about Gawker being the nice guys and all telling people what to think rather reporting the news, this resulted into Trump winning. Perfectly explaining my position on this.

  • Disqusted

    I heard about this. This is that stupid thing where rich people “silence” the media, right? Why the hell would they “silence the media” when they can *literally control the media* like they’re doing right now? Duhhhhh.

    It’d also be weird if the media kept receiving payments for not doing anything. I mean, a one time “shut up” payment wouldn’t be enough. I think regular people just can’t imagine what you can do when you have near infinite money.

    Besides, if they really wanted to “silence” them, they would just “suicide”, “accident” or “botched robbery” them like they did to Seth Rich and Michael Hastings. Then they can simply replace them with people who will do their bidding. Most other people would take the money over losing their life.

    That’s how our world works, sadly. No Soros-funded Netflix bullshit is going to change that.

  • Alistair

    lol Netflix do surprise me do you know any gamer that belong to the billionaire interest group. If I was a billionaire I would stop posting and be playing a shit ton of games I be too dam busy.

        • Disqusted

          I think most normal people do not visit Polygon at all. Normal as in, they still have a brain.

        • Also keep in mind that YouTube shadowbans comments as well. People who may have been speaking out against Polygon’s BS could have been censored. You can setup how you want comments to display, and there were a lot of comments that were automatically shadowbanned on the OAG channel, and I had to manually approve them (old comments too that had plenty of replies and upvotes). So I can only imagine what the comment sections are like for Polygon.

          • Disqusted

            Yeah, Metokur did a video on that too. There’s so much blatant censorship and social manipulation going on. They’ve been caught so many times too, and absolutely nothing has been done about it.

            That’s why I always complain about how law is in no way equipped to deal with the digital age. Not that law always has regular citizens’ best interests in mind, anyway.

            People just aren’t aware of the kind of digital bullshit going on, because it’s never happened before in human history. In a few centuries, people will be looking back at the stupidity of people today and laughing. If we manage to survive Soros’ onslaught of bullshit.

          • There’s so much blatant censorship and social manipulation going on. They’ve been caught so many times too, and absolutely nothing has been done about it.

            Well, according to the Alt-Right Pepe brigade, Donald Trump is supposed to be the lord and savior that puts an end to all the Social Justice and feminist crap.

            I know things take time to implement, but so far I’ve seen absolutely no indication or plans whatsoever that he’s actually going to do this. And it’s clear that he isn’t going to.

            Because after all, he’s a politician. And politicians, no matter who they are and which side they are on, will end up pandering to the loudest groups. Politicians simply cannot be trusted.

    Hulk Hogan was just a washed up wrester that didn’t deserve to be crushed for something he did or said in private, it’s not like he is running the country. nobody ssemsed to worry that Hillary was covering up the E-Mail scandel and she was a Political figure.

    And Peter Thiel just took revenge this way for Gawker making public that he was gay, That’s also something private that Gawker threw out the window simply for the clicks and that is not something that could be considered Journalism.

    I’m legitimately tempted to get on NetFlix, and downrate every single “NetFlix Original” that isn’t DareDevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and certain standup comedy specials.

      • He’s trying to scream hypocrisy because GG/Hogan/Thiel shut down Gawker, hence Gawker’s own “free speech” would be punished and silenced.

        I guess he most likely approves of unethical journalism and the mainstream media breaking the law, lying, deceiving, fabricating, slandering, fear-mongering and making people’s lives a misery.

        Always makes me laugh when SJWs cry for free speech.

        • Pfft. See I almost thought that’s what he was saying, but I didn’t think anyone would be so silly as to defend criminal behavior like revenge porn, which is a clear violation of Florida state law. Then again, SJWs like pedos and raping people, so I guess revenge porn isn’t as bad in their eyes as the other two.

          • Did it not occur to you that maybe they’re not just canceling over this particular documentary but over a build-up of Netflix actively choosing to politicize their content and only show slanted documentaries that appeal to the Liberal demographic? If Netflix also chose to air the Red Pill and this particular documentary, then the threats of cancellation would look silly, but the fact that Netflix has actively funded a documentary supporting the fake news propaganda machine and defend Gawker who was found guilty of a crime illegal in the state of Florida, I honestly can’t see why people shouldn’t cancel their Netflix subscription. Netflix has openly come out in support of corruption and illegal behavior.

            There’s a difference:
            The Red Pill was funded by feminists, then they pulled funding when they heard it would be fair towards men. It was going to be cancelled, until kind people who know being a guy sucks, decided to help. Fact is, the feminists wanted it to be propaganda for their side, not a fair piece. Don’t f**king defend their actions and call it propaganda for being fair.

            This documentary was funded by, from what I’ve heard, NetFlix, of which happens to largely be owned by Soros, the same asshole who funds feminist and extremist groups. On top of this, Netflix also happens to have banned The Red Pill. A quick search on the net proves this.

            You can’t legitimately bitch about hypocrisy and bias while completely failing to address the hypocrisy and bias of Netflix. Covering only one side is literally propaganda.

            Netflix itself is creating propaganda, censoring good people, and contributing to the destruction of society. Why would you want to keep paying a company like that? Surely you can find good shows elsewhere? And it’s not our fault that the only way consumers can “vote” is by paying or not paying.

            So… to reiterate, on one hand, we have a fair documentary, whose maker is also a fair woman. If you’ve ever listened to her talk, you’d know this. She accepted funding from the only people who would help, because her feminist “friends” BETRAYED her and pulled funding.

            On the other hand, we have a rich billionaire with a long record for destabilizing many countries and pushing racist/sexist narratives and hysteria, always focusing only on a single side while demonizing others, and also censors anything that doesn’t fit into their narrative.

            You’d have to be stupid as shit to not see which side is bad/wrong/evil. Or a paid shill.

            and when they do something illegal, they protest and advocate for it to be normalized by the society because they believe in mob rule, as long as they get away with something illegal and they have normalized it in the society through peer pressure, they can go ahead and do the most despicable things and if you tell them “hey you can do that because its illegal/unethical” they response will be something along the lines “the ends justify the means” or “the society has normalized it therefore its ok”

            Read Rules for Radicals. It made me ponder this simple thought. They always claim the ends justify the means, they will always do as they please and laugh at the rules until there is someone or something a lot more amoral than they are. “HA HA HA, fuck your rules.” doesn’t seem to be uttered as much when someone violently tortures your family members, firebombs your entire neighborhood and shoots the people rushing to help or running away.

            Owe then they decry that there should be rules. That we should all follow the rules, but only in so much as it benefits them. At that point though those that supported them are distancing themselves, because these people brought the devil to their neighborhood.

        It’s banned in Australia because a few feminists complained. They say covering men’s actual suffering is “violence against women”. Everything is “violence against women” now.

        If anything, shitting all over men and kicking them while they’re down is most likely to increase violence against women. Obviously.

        That’s what they want, or they wouldn’t be able to play the victim. It’s not the feminists who are going to get attacked either way, so they don’t care if they create real victims.

      Learn proper English. Free speech when we do what?

      A respected self-proclaimed feminist documentary maker covering MRA does not magically become “MRA propaganda” just because she tried to cover both sides fairly, you lying piece of shit. YOU are propaganda.

      Typical SJW bizarro world:
      Treat men fairly like human beings = “PROPAGANDA”.
      Give women extremely favorable special treatment = “EQUALITY”.

      • Kiryu

        This is when you realize feminism was never about equality but special treatment.
