Utterly hopeless, clickbait, censored tat

To call this a local news app is a travesty. Crammed with clickbait and dross stories with no relevance to the region. Crammed with ‘celebrity’ (in the loosest possible sense) tat. Milks genuine news stories for weeks at a time, multiple times a day. All with a slightly anti-authority left wing slant to appease it’s Daily Mirror owners. The very worst aspect of this app is the almost impossibly censored comment section. Now I get that there are potential issues with this but it clearly uses some sort of keyword algorithm. Which is patently broken and programmed by a frightened student. It places even the most innocuous or sensible comments under permanent review, while still allowing some to make blatantly racist or abusive comments unchecked. This is the reason it’s full of multi 3 word posts by the same authors who get around it by splitting their messages. Pointless, depressing and makes the site ultra scruffy. And don’t start me on spelling and grammar... Avoid!

Don’t challenge MIrror Group Newspapers take on the news

Mirror Group news who have created this app own scores of local Newspapers. You will find that once your register to comment on you local paper, ie Birmingham Mail,you’ll be able to make comments on papers al over the country.
If you decide to make any remark contrary to the ethos of the Centre left Labour supporting company your comment will go into moderation and effectively you will be banned.
This is what will happen if Comrade Corbyn gets elected.
Strangely the app appears to let people make fascist rascist and islamaphobic comments without any action being taken.
The quality of the articles leave a lot to be desired and to be quite honest many of these reporters will never get to work on a big national daily.
Also very very random video clips are inserted into articles that actually do not appear to have any particular relevance

Poor reporting with very poor spelling. Punctuation and grammar. They also block you making comments on news when you challenge the quality of the stories. It rarely works properly and your bias on stories is astonishing to say the least.
My biggest concern is how you apply censorship on readers comments. If you don’t like to see comments then remove the facility. Stop playing the role of the PC Police. We have enough of this already.
