Facebook Bans Australian News
Facebook is acting just like the railroad robber barons of the 19th century. Before they got regulated for running monopolies, the railroads would simply drop transit stops for a town if it posed any problems for them. The trains would roll through the town, without leaving off passengers or picking them up.
That’s essentially what Facebook has now done to the nation of Australia. The social media monopoly didn’t like some new laws Australia has enacted regarding the company, so Facebook banned users from posting any Australian news.
This isn’t a partial ban, either. Not only are news stories banned, but also opinion and commentary, as well as emergency services. It’s time Facebook paid a huge price for this blatant censorship. It has fallen off the manhole, down into the sewer, same as Twitter and many other Leftist social media platforms. More from Tim Pool.

Here, Steve Turley explains why Australians are stomping on Facebook. Will Big Tech be forced to back down or will they get even more draconian moving forward?
