Facebook will end special treatment for politicians: Report

Facebook is reportedly planning to end a policy that effectively exempts politicians from content moderation rules. The change comes as the social media giant faces increased criticism for allowing world leaders and politicians to use its platform to spread misinformation, quash criticism and harass opponents. It is expected to announce its new policy on Friday.

Well, I'm for this in principle, but in practicality, who gets to decide these things?

If you think this is a great idea. Can I remind you that Facebook is a billion dollar private corporation that is unaccountable to the public in its actions and you are FOR giving them dictatorial power as to what you can and cannot see posted by the very officials YOU selected to put in office. If you can cast your eyes beyond Trump, if that’s at all possible for you, what stops Facebook blocking official press releases from your elected officials that show them or their trade partners in a bad light?

If they get away with this what will they choose to censor next? This is way too much power for ANYONE. I guess it is a good thing Larry Flint is gone. He is the one that verified in the Courts censorship not in the cards, didn't they?
