CNN: Facebook bans Louis Farrakhan, Milo Yiannopoulos, InfoWars and others from its platforms as ‘dangerous’

CNN: Facebook bans Louis Farrakhan, Milo Yiannopoulos, InfoWars and others from its platforms as ‘dangerous’. “Facebook announced Thursday afternoon that it had designated some high-profile people, including Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who’s notorious for using anti-Semitic language, and right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, as ‘dangerous’ and said it will be purging them from its platforms.” I am so cyncial about Facebook at this point that I thought, “Oh, I guess Facebook did something that’s about to be revealed and this is some kind of proactive ‘we’re taking active measures’ release.” I don’t know that there IS anything to be revealed, just that I don’t think the company as an entity is operating from any positive motives.

The Next Web: Facebook and YouTube aren’t even trying to enforce the Alex Jones ban

The Next Web: Facebook and YouTube aren’t even trying to enforce the Alex Jones ban. “After Alex Jones was effectively banned from the internet — or at least his major distribution channels — last August, it appeared that we’d be rid of his half-baked conspiracy theories once and for all. Or, that’s what we thought, anyway…. It didn’t take long for Jones to feel the heat from the rest of the internet’s major players, including Apple, Facebook, Twitter, Spotify, and a handful of others. Each banned Jones, and InfoWars, permanently, from their respective platforms citing reasons ranging from simple terms of service violations, to actively inciting violence or promoting hate speech. But regardless of their actions against him, Jones is proving resilient, like a digital cockroach.”
