    To be fair, they would need to pull CNN also. You a fan of censorship? Zucker is.

    Zuckerberg can censor whatever the f*ck he wants to on his site. It makes sense long term to ban InfoWars because it is actually fake news. They call into question the integrity of Facebook itself. But Facebook is choosing to kowtow to the loons in order to extract short term profits.
    I haven't considered selling my Facebook shares till now. I have always believed in management but now I am certainly questioning that.

    What is fake news to You?
    Fake News is lies that are presented as the truth. Think TheOnion.com but less obvious. Which is exactly what InfoWars is.
    Right-wingers use it to mean opinions they don't like.

    InfoWars has more credibility than BIG corporate Media.

    How many news organizations should be owned by a Military Industrial Complex corporation, who has $100s of billions in govt contracts and received govt bailout money (TARP)?

    Facebook already got busted in suppressing Conservative exposure. They represent their "trending" ticker as based on popularity, but if a Conservative issue or piece got popular, they'd pull it.

    They control the flow of information in a large staple of our current societal culture. They're clearly leftist activists, there's no need to debate that.

    Do you think Facebook should ban InfoWars in an effort to get rid of Fake News?

    There is no military industrial complex complex corporation. You are just jumbling nonsensical conspiracy theories together instead of addressing the issue at hand.
    Should Facebook ban Infowars along with the rest of Fake news.
