As Journalists Cover for Biden, Facebook Rolls Out New Rules to Protect Them
There is no question that the establishment media leans considerably to the political left. That’s what makes a new report that Facebook will afford journalists and activists increased protections from criticism so concerning.
According to Reuters, Facebook will increase protections for these two groups because it classifies them as “involuntary public figures.” The protections include prohibiting the public from engaging in “harassment and bullying” toward journalists and “human rights defenders.”
