Acclaimed Venezuelan News Site Latest Victim in Facebook Censorship Spree | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Acclaimed Venezuelan News Site Latest Victim in Facebook Censorship Spree

Facebook has removed the page of yet another media outlet. This time, it’s not a far right fringe network like Infowars, but “Venezuela's only independent, grassroots leftwing English media platform,” the outlet, Venezuela Analysis, noted on Twitter.

Publishers for the news outlet were informed by Facebook on Thursday that their page had been "unpublished" due to "recent activity" that "doesn't follow the Facebook Pages Terms." When a Facebook page is unpublished, it becomes no longer viewable to the public, only to the administrators. Venezuela Analysis will have the option to appeal the decision.

It isn't clear what specific activity prompted the move.

The outlet called it a "naked attempt to block our grassroots coverage of the on-the-ground situation in Venezuela. Need more evidence that [Facebook] is arm of corporate [mainstream media] censoring alternative voices?"
