Does removing the comments section from news articles strengthen the influence and perceived authority of media companies?

Update:

Is it a coincidence that this trend accelerated after the 2016 “Democratic” Primaries?

    No. If they are so butt-hurt about not being able to comment, readers will go elsewhere.

    It keeps Yahoo from having to recognize that a great deal of people are not slack jawed liberal bots, toeing the party line. It allows them to sleep at night.
