Ban children from social media? No! Ban social media. Everyone has a right to their opinion but no right to a platform in order to vomit their madness all over the world.

as expected, this was more of banning Russian media than protecting press freedom. couldn't listen to the end, boring repetitive one-sided so-called analysis.

Try as hard as you can to justify it, but everyone knows it is unjustifiable. You're only destroying your own face, forcing us to rethink your reliability as a neutral news source. Punish Russian sportsmen to prevent world war 2?? what a solution! everything that West was preaching (read using against) the world is destroyed in less than 3 weeks.

Loosing trust in Aljazeera, for around 2 weeks now only playing one side of the story. Why don't let us hear from Russian side? Can it be really that black and white? evil vs good? with no bigger context?

Utterly discredited reporting. You edited out the Chinese rebuke telling its US hosts :you do not speak to China from a position of power. Watch your tone as you speak to us. This shows the US was mocked in its own house.

As a refugee I deeply understand how painful it is to be UNWANTED, and this conversation made me feel really sorry for all refugees and raised many unanswered questions. God helps us all.
