Facebook running anti-vax ads despite ban

As per BuzzFeed News, Facebook is hosting ads for alternative medicine company Earthley that claims the vaccine for whooping cough is unsafe. This comes despite its own rule prohibiting vaccine misinformation in ads. One ad reads, ’Is the vaccine the best option? And if not, what is?’. Facebook, in its defense, said it does not have a policy that bans ads expressing opposition to vaccines.

Freedom of speech right? If they paid for adspace does it matter?

Misinformation =/= opposition. BuzzFeed has really been on Facebook’s ass lately. Did I miss something?

Pays the bills. The Vax-Medical-Complex will pour another 500 million dollars and show the already dumbed down, drugged up world that , there is no alternative.

Classified as "alternative " only because the AMA said so. Another way for "standardized" medicine to kill the competition and keep the bucks rolling in.

Instead of blaming the company look in the mirror. You think anti-vax people will change their mind if you insult them all the time? Non fuckin' stop? They won't listen to any fact or argument from the same people that hate their guys and call them pieces of shit and monsters. You made them just as much as the people that lied to them.
