Last week, the liberal publication ThinkProgress published a piece on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing with the headline “Brett Kavanaugh said he would kill Roe v.

Facebook’s punishment mechanism kicked in, and the ThinkProgress article was cut off from being seen by about 80 percent of its potential Facebook audience.

Ironically, my source on this is Vox, but this article is actually pretty good, even though the author is someone who used to work at ThinkProgress. He goes on to say that the fact checker at Weekly Standard was correct.

Facebook joins forces with several outlets to determine who does and doesn’t get censored. Think Progress was a victim of this new system, prior they were cheering on censorship.
