“‘Deeply Disturbing’: For Second Time This Year, Facebook Suspends Left-Leaning teleSUR English without Explanation”

“Facebook Says It Is Deleting Accounts at the Direction of the U.S. and Israeli Governments”
Glenn Greenwald, The Intercept, December 30, 2017

It's not surprising that Facebook finds straightforward reports of events that happen in the world to be “hateful, threatening or obscene.” I often feel that way myself. The difference is that it's not my policy to keep other people from finding out things that I already know.
