Thank you for this debate. Good luck and I hope voting issues would be based on arguements. Thank you.
Burden of proof resets on Pro. He must prove the internet is liberally biased.

Definitions:
Liberal-a broad class of political philosophies that considers individual liberty and equality to be the most important political goals.

Youtube cannot be a reliable source because people can put random crap in it and sometimes it's unrelibable. For example I once searched up how to make an air gun and it gave me instructions and how to make it. I made one and it failed to fire the golf ball. Therefore Youtube isn't reliable.

Contention 1: Internet doesn't favor this because:
1. If the internet favors liberalism then they wouldn't be shoving cameras at celebrities.
2. Websites are quite extreme: http://www.martinlutherking.org...
3. Websties promote racism: http://www.martinlutherking.org...

For reasons above I have proven internet doesn't support rights/liberalism. So vote con.
Debate Round No. 1

....uh....

Pro has dropped my contention 1 and my rebuttals.

Again the internet isn't liberally biased because it doesn't strive for indivudual liberty and equality. The the majority of the internet doesn't favor equality. For example go to google and type in I am... the 1st query search box would say something about fearing chinese people.

Again Pro has dropped all arguements so vote con.

Pro forfeited thus all my arguements stand. I was hoping for a response.

So let's go over contention 1:
1. the internet violates personal liberty such as shoving cameras at celebrities.
2. Websites take issues to the extreme such as gathering for a protest.
3. Certain websites advocate racism such as the mlk.org I provided above. Websites can be hosted by anyone and anyone can put their ideals in it which doesn't necessarily have to be liberal. MLK.org is a websites that insults MLK. http://people.reed.edu... is another example.

Youtube is unreliable for the R1 reasons.

So for the reasons above and silent is consent vote con. Thank you.

Don't know about you, but I think reality is a bit liberally bias.

Defaulted all categories to CON due to multiple forfeits.

Now I'm not saying there isn't racism to be found on that site, but pointing to the site in general indicates that the site in general serves no other purpose.

You might wanna tell us what you mean by "the internet promotes racism." Otherwise people might think, you know, that you're implying any questioning of the character on His Holy Lutheran Kingliness is racist.
