If you let commenters go after your reporters, it hurts your credibility with other readers » Nieman Journalism Lab
We found a significant effect for the abusive comment on author credibility and intention to seek news from the author and outlet in the future, but gender of the author did not moderate these effects. To ensure the null effects for gender were not an artifact of comment or topic, we fielded two additional survey experiments. Across topics, whether the abuse was gendered or gender-specific, we found abusive comments exert significant negative effects on evaluations, regardless of author gender. Our results have implications for news organizations considering comments.

YouTube comments are heavily manipulated, and I fear for our democracy | Arman Dezfuli-Arjomandi
When you don't know much about the topic, it's very hard to tell bogus YouTube comments from real ones. And in politics, this is *very often* te case.

"YouTube comments are being used to control the conversation and manipulate voters of all ages on a massive scale

YouTube’s reach is absolutely massive. As of mid-2018, it has 1.8 billion logged-in MAU (Monthly Active Users), compared to Facebook (2.2 billion) and Twitter (330 million). The 1.8 billion figure excludes hundreds of millions, possibly over a billion, monthly viewers who do not have accounts, making YouTube the most-used social media site in the world.

It’s also the preferred platform amongst US teens: According to Pew Research, 85% of teens say they use YouTube, compared to Instagram (72%), Facebook (51%) and Twitter (32%). YouTube is extremely popular with our most vulnerable, impressionable population."

Comment: "Here in the Brazilian elections we had a massive manipulation of information very well orchestrated using bots in groups of the Whatsapp app. It’s very sad when it affects a country’s democracy, repeating lies until it becomes “true.” The “average citizen” follows a collective unconscious, and ends up following the herd."
