Finnish news sites rein in unruly comment sections
Two of Finland's largest media sites on Tuesday decided to curtail or halt public comment on their websites.
The leading newspaper Helsingin Sanomat's Nyt supplement and the domestic broadcaster MTV both say they have shut down comment sections due to a flood of hate speech and "weak quality discussion".
The news division of public broadcaster Yle is not changing its policy on comment, says the Director of News and Current Affairs, Atte Jääskeläinen.
