Facebook reportedly considering ban on political ads before election

Social media platform Facebook is considering a blackout of political ads before the upcoming 2020 election. The decision comes as a response to accusations and claims that Facebook has not cracked down hard enough on hate speech and toxic behavior in their communities, taking instead a more hands-off approach to policing their site

Corporations, unions and PACs are not "citizens". Cut them out of the political process completely. No more money, time or ads. Only citizens who have the ability and right to vote should be engaged in our elections.

No need for those pesky Russkies to influence the elections again (not).... Now we have Marxists right here to do it!

I feel like (if true), this would make people using Facebook think that they aren't being influenced by ads but in reality the real messaging and manipulation is hidden under the guise of "truthful" journalism (whats new) rather than being dismissed as ads.
