Fox News host Mark Levin raged at Facebook after the platform placed restrictions on his account — including reducing its distribution — after flagging a number of his posts for false information.
“Facebook has now placed severe restrictions on my Facebook page on the eve before the election based on an extremely dishonest Politifact review of my link to an accurate story,” Levin wrote in a Facebook post. “I will not be intimidated or threatened by Facebook.”
Levin shared a misleading post by Trump’s former acting director of national intelligence and ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell accusing Biden of not wearing a mask while on a flight.
As I reported yesterday, the photo posted by Grenell, which went wildly viral in MAGA world, as actually published by Vanity Fair in 2019, long before the arrival of the coronavirus.
A former intelligence official called Joe Biden a “phony” and shared a photo of him not wearing a face mask on a plane, but the photo of the Democratic presidential nominee is from November 2019, before the pandemic. https://t.co/Am2yUP2I3B
