Facebook has banned ads from Pro-Trump Super PAC The Committee to Defend the President following an ad released by the Super PAC exposing Joe Biden’s “woke, race-driven VP selection process.”
Committee to Defend the President Chairman Ted Harvey has responded forcefully to the ban claiming that Facebook is “determined to restrict free speech and attack those who dare to support President Trump.
Harvey’s statement continued: “When their liberal, Trump-hating ‘fact-checkers’ complained about the Committee’s first ad for correctly calling out Joe Biden, we changed it. When those same ‘fact-checkers’ didn’t bother to check the facts or even watch our second ad, they still banned us. The Committee will not be silenced by ‘woke’ Silicon Valley elites, as we expose the real Joe Biden. We have reallocated our entire Facebook budget to other online platforms, so Americans can see the whole truth—not just Facebook’s truth.”
Interestingly enough CNN apparently knew about the Facebook ban before CDP did and this was the first video by The Committee to Defend the President ever retweeted by President Trump.
Following the retweet, Facebook issued the ban.
The Committee to Defend the President has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on ads with Facebook over the last two years.
A Facebook spokesperson responded to the ban: “taking action against repeat offenders: Pages and websites that repeatedly share false news will have some restrictions, including having their distribution reduced. They may also have their ability to monetize and advertise removed, and their ability to register as a news Page removed.”
The question is, should Facebook be the arbiter of truth?
