Report: Facebook to End Special Treatment for Politicians

Facebook will reportedly overturn its policy that shields politicians from some content moderation rules, according to The Verge.

The move comes a month after Facebook’s Oversight Board upheld the company’s decision to restrict former President Donald Trump’s access to the social network in the wake of the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, though it took issue with the indefinite nature of the ban. An independent group funded by Facebook to review tricky content rulings, the 20-member Oversight Board in May said that the “same rules should apply to all users.”
