Amazon this week blocked an advertisement for a new book on Black Lives Matter leaders, claiming content that “revolves around controversial or highly debated social topics is not permitted.”

BLM: The Making of a New Marxist Revolution” is the latest book by Mike Gonzalez, a former journalist who is a senior fellow at The Heritage Foundation, parent organization of The Daily Signal.

>>> Update: Amazon notified The Heritage Foundation on Thursday morning that it had reversed its action, saying: “Our policies were inaccurately enforced, and the book is now being advertised. We are providing training to ensure our teams are clear on our policies.” The Daily Signal is preparing a follow-up report. <<<
