Freedom of speech and the media

I happened to notice earlier a page on IOM Today which detailed the latest NY honours, including that of the chief constable being awarded some medal or other. The page had at least 11 comments on when I saw it, but all comments have now been deleted and further comments are no longer allowed. Did anyone happen to see anything contentious, or has Mr Butt simply decided the deriding of Mr Roberts in the comments section of said post is unkind to his close friend, and hence removed the comments?

The comments on there are unfailingly mental, I don't know why they let them on any topic.

 

Lol! It was humorous reading. But unless there was anything libellous etc, it seems as though the media are stopping the public from saying what they want? Especially when they’re deleted after at least 11 comments?

Someone was whinging about it happening on a different article last week over on twitter, can't remember what it was, but Richard Butt had replied so if you can be bothered you can probably find it.

It was the deletion of comments about the DOI on Xmas day.
