Facebook & Twitter Ban 800 Alt-Media Pages In Biggest Free Press Attack In U.S. History
James Reader, managing editor at one of those banned pages, Reverb Press, argued on Friday that the page did not post fake news: “We have always stood up to fact-checking. Left-leaning, yes. But fake news? NEVER,” he said in a Tweet. https://threatpost.com/facebook...-purge/138245/
[Chris Menahan ] Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey just carried out quite possibly the biggest attack on the free press in the history of America and the corporate media is cheering it on.
During the civil war, Abraham Lincoln shut down a few newspapers.
Mark Zuckerberg just shut down 559 pages and 251 accounts — which include tons of massive independent media sites with millions of followers run by Americans — a few weeks out from the midterms.
Jack Dorsey followed it up by banning many of the same independent news sites and the journalists who ran them on Twitter.
The pages included The Free Thought Project, Press For Truth, Anti-Media, Cop Block, Filming Cops, Right Wing News, Noisy Room, Gun Laws Don’t Work, Voluntaryist Veterans and many more.
