Is Reddit Imploding?

Undoubtedly one of the most influential websites not just in the United States but also the world, Reddit a social aggregator could be imploding under duress.

  1. Reddit bans RT.com - and all the conflict and drama that goes along with it.
  2. Unverified intelligence information from unknown hacker repeatedly gets posted in r/WorldNews 
  3. Reddit cofounder accused of collaborating with Stratfor 
Theory: Reddit is being used by anti-US elements to manipulate US opinion

How: Who controls the news, controls public opinion

Premise: 
  • Reddit's reach 

  • Landing a story on the Reddit homepage can send six figure traffic to the hosting website, making its digital real estate quite valuable. Who uses Reddit? According to Pew, it’s a bit dude-heavy. Regarding the US Internet population:

    Some 15% of male internet users ages 18-29 say that they use reddit, compared with 5% of women in the same age range and 8% of men ages 30-49.

There's more to this. I'm just too tired and sleepy.
