An article written by a mainstream press outlet was censored as “spam” by Facebook Wednesday night.
“So this is interesting…
@facebook took down my post of my reporting for the @nypost — I’ve received nine separate messages from readers telling me the same thing has happened to them. ‘sup @facebook ?” said Salena Zito, author of the piece.

The article published in the New York Post, which is politically right-of-center but mainstream, detailed how the white collar crimes of President Donald J. Trump associates Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort will not have an impact on support for the President.
Zito shared the following photo evidence of the censorship with The Daily Caller.
“We removed this post because it looks like spam and doesn’t follow our Community Standards,” said an automated message from Facebook.
The post was restored shortly after Facebook was contacted for comment on the situation. According to Zito, no explanation was provided for flagging the post in the first place.
“Update original post restored with no response to any of my questions,” Zito said on Twitter on Thursday morning.

The embattled tech giant has been under scrutiny for censorship of conservatives for years, but the level of concern reached new heights when talk show host Alex Jones was banned from the platform recently. Jones was also banned from Apple, YouTube and Spotify.
Similarly, British free speech activist Tommy Robinson was banned from Instagram, and VICE Media co-founder Gavin McInnes was banned from Twitter.
Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer was temporarily suspended from Facebook for publishing a video wherein she asked Sharia-Law compliant Congressional candidates simple questions about how they would serve certain constituencies given their religious disposition.
Twitter Temporarily Suspends Marjorie Taylor Greene for, You Guessed It, “Election Misinformation”
This is the new normal.
Twitter has temporarily suspended Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene for numerous violations of their “civic integrity policy,” according to a spokesman who confirmed the news to CNN.
Twitter also cited violations of their civic integrity policy to justify banning President Donald Trump earlier this month.
Unfortunately, to borrow a phrase from the COVID-19 pandemic, this will be the new normal. No longer is Twitter content with simply labeling tweets they don’t like with disclaimers. The Big Tech giant’s ban of the president has opened a Pandora’s box, and you don’t even need to be conservative to recognize this.
Big League Politics has covered Rep. Greene closely since her election to the US House. She effectively ran unopposed, defeating a Democratic challenger named Kevin Van Ausdal who withdrew his candidacy approximately a month-and-a-half before the election.
Most recently Greene announced on Wednesday that she planned to introduce articles of impeachment against Joe Biden on his first full day in the Oval Office.
“On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden,” she tweeted. “75 million Americans are fed up with inaction. It’s time to take a stand. I’m proud to be the voice of Republican voters who have been ignored.”
The Democratic Party still controls the House of Representatives, so impeachment articles against Biden will go nowhere. However, as Big League Politics‘ Richard Moorhead has said, “the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.“
