It seems that Facebook is now in the business of shutting down the accounts of journalists who question the mainstream medias reporting of the news. Saturday night I was alerted by Facebook that I would have to wait three days until I was able to log onto my personal Facebook account again. I was informed the reason for this punishment was the result of meme I had shared. Facebook told me it “…violates Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities”. I was further warned that “If you continue to abuse Facebook’s features, your account could be permanently disabled”.
Below is the image in question. I personally see nothing wrong with it, but I know that some people aren’t able to open their eyes quite as wide as I’m willing to. Censorship is reaching critical heights here, especially when the “fringe” arguments about this case seem to carry more weight than the official story, much like all the other “questionable” mass murders we’ve seen here in the US.
In this technological age, Facebook/Twitter have effectively cornered the market on fast paced communication. Both are now suspending accounts of those who wish to speak about things such as topics you’d find on these boards. Very soon you will not be able to communicate a message, en masse, if its content is not approved. It’s outrageous and needs to stop.
