The platform did not offer any evidence of “false news” or even a criteria for what it classifies as “false news.”
The host of Tucker Carlson Tonight posted a screenshot about “Page Restrictions” that Facebook placed on the page.
“Today’s censorship by Facebook,” the page said. “‘Reduced Distribution.’ It’s no coincidence that the election is just weeks away.”
Facebook’s message to Carlson said, “Your page has reduced distribution and other restrictions because of repeated sharing of false news. People will also be able to see if a Page has a history of sharing false news.”
The increased censorship comes a little more than a month away from the presidential election, during which time technology monopolies hope to use their power to secure Democrat Joe Biden’s victory.
Unlike old-school Democrats, who worried about corporate consolidation, Biden has not shown any concern about the alarming growth of corporate power, especially in the areas of technology and finance.
He has accepted more donations from billionaires than President Donald Trump, Forbes reported.
Among his most recent alleged heresies, Carlson showed that Breonna Taylor‘s death was an unfortunate but accidental tragedy, not an episode of systemic injustice fueled by racial animus.
Facebook’s decision to censor Carlson comes about a week after both Facebook and Instagram added warning labels to his posts about the coronavirus, Variety reported.
“This post repeats information about COVID-19 that has been reviewed by independent fact-checkers,” the warnings claimed.
Evidence has revealed the social-media platform’s so-called independent fact-checkers are linked to the corrupt, China-backed World Health Organization and other groups that have a vested interest in suppressing skeptical viewpoints.
That specific warning came in response to an interview he held with Chinese virologist Dr. Li-Meng Yan, who claimed the Sars-Cov-2 virus, which causes COVID-19 originated in the Wuhan virus laboratory.
Corporate power has been particularly heavy handed in its defense of the Chinese Communist Party.
“Facebook has censored our video with a Chinese whistleblower. Big tech wants control over the facts you see,” Carlson said.
