[Ed. – This after a media smear blitzkrieg this summer, attacking Epoch Times — which has carried some stellar journalism on Spygate, Russiagate, and Emailgate — as a set-up for the monetization kneecapping. What NBC calls “pro-Trump advertisements” are not political ads; they’re promotions of Epoch Times content, which is called “pro-Trump” because it’s not ritually anti-Trump. When you stop and think about it, the genuinely Orwellian manner in which the MSM communicate now is mind-boggling.]
Facebook has banned pro-Trump news outlet The Epoch Times from any further advertising on its platform.
As NBC News observed, the organization “spent more money on pro-Trump Facebook advertisements than any group other than the Trump campaign.”
The ban which NBC News reported August 22 will not scour Epoch Times content from the platform. Facebook’s ban only impacts paper’s ability to buy advertising. It had reportedly spent “$2 million worth of ads that promoted the president and conspiracy theories about his political enemies” with no less than $450,000 on thousands of ads from various accounts it managed in the past 30 days.
