Hi, V.M. Varga. What is the URL of that particular article preview? If you believe that the presence of the particular article violates IMDb policy, then try logging into the desktop version of IMDb and clicking the "Report this" hyperlink corresponding to the article. If you're suggesting a ban or change to existing policy, then a forum administrator can change the type of this topic from "problem" to "idea", for review at a later time and in a different way.

Thank you for your answer and time. I don’t have the specific URL anymore, unfortunately. This was on mobile so I’ll go on desktop to see if I can find it and report it. Thanks again

As a post-graduate student in political sciences and international relations whose primary research field lies within audio-visual media I should say that, unfortunately, at this point audio-visual media is too connected to politics, fictional narrative movies very much included. 

Donald J. Trump, as much as he is a politician is also a prolific producer and actor. Even if he was not, practically each president of the United States from the modern era has an IMDb page and therefore is a subject of IMDb news section. And there is also no denying that he is popular enough for these news to be relevant in the eyes of many people.

The Rolling Stones magazine firm passionately dislikes Donald Trump as President of the United States, if not disliking overall, and it can publish whatever opinions it likes in its magazine. However, I'm not so sure that the IMDb company should indiscriminately allow all Rolling Stones articles to find their way onto the interfaces of IMDb.

Sure but it still shouldn’t make the front page. This is like an eighth page type article that hit the front page somehow and also includes vulgar language and is directly aimed at politics.

This request should also include things such as IMDB and Pride month. Just show entertainment information. Also, please remove crap such as lgbtq heroes or whatever that headline was. This crap is already in our faces, everyday.

Drew, maybe, but your request is quite different from the complaint posed by the creator of this topic.
