Journalist Ford Fischer Gets a Facebook Ban for Posting Raw Anti-Trump Protests From Election Night

Independent reporter Ford Fischer is regularly censored by Big Tech platforms desperate to stop the free flow of information, but Facebook’s censorship against the video journalist has ramped up severely around election time with narrative control more important than ever.

Fischer wrote on Twitter earlier today that Facebook had banned his account for 30 days for posting in an “unusual” manner for documenting anti-Trump protests. He had previously been cited for a “complex entities interaction,” whatever that means:

However, Fischer noted that Facebook reversed their ban after a public outcry, showing how these monolithic social media platforms will backtrack out of cowardice when their villainy is exposed and widespread anger ensues:

Fischer has stood on the front lines to cover many contentious rallies over social media in recent years, most famously the infamous white nationalist rally in Charlottesville back in 2017 that turned deadly. He has done the same with regards to election coverage, capturing footage that the mainstream news would rather ignore or distort.


Big League Politics reported months ago on how Fischer was banned from Facebook temporarily for reporting on armed protests in Louisville, Ky.:

On Saturday, independent journalist Ford Fischer was banned from Facebook after he livestreamed footage of a contentious armed protests on the monolithic social media platform.

Fischer, who regularly publishes raw video from protests through his News2Share outlet on various social media platforms, noted that he was banned after finishing a livestream of a contentious militia rally in Louisville, Ky…

Fischer tried to appeal Facebook’s capricious ban of his verified account, but his efforts were initially to no avail as he was kept off of the platform a full day…

The libertarian reporter noted that he was not at the rally to support extremist political violence, but was there to perform his journalist duty to inform the public about what exactly was taking place at the event…

Fischer noted that he has been attached by other major tech platforms before, but Facebook’s decision to remove him from their platform completely is without precedent…

However, after significant push back from Fischer’s significant Twitter following, Facebook caved and let him back on the platform.

It is worth noting that Fischer mainly provides raw video of political events to the public for free on social media. He does little if any editorializing when producing content. Big Tech’s suppression of Fischer’s independent journalism shows that these monopoly platforms are in fact at war with free speech.
