(ReliableNews.org) – Conservative radio personality Mark Levin advised his fans of Facebook’s decision to back off on throttling the reach of his Facebook page.
Levin took to Twitter on Oct. 5, where he posted a screenshot of a notice from Facebook, advising him of its decision to censor his page for allegedly sharing “false news.” Levin pointed out the absurdity of the social media giant’s claim, responding he only uses “legitimate” sources for his posts.
1. Facebook has just sent us this message. It’s a clear effort at censorship. Every link I post is from a legitimate source. pic.twitter.com/yLIz7kO6gL

Levin told his listeners he was “gearing up for a hell of a battle” should Facebook follow through on its decision during an Oct. 5 discussion with conservative political commentator Dan Bongino.
Censorship by social media platforms has hit a fevered pitch in recent months with President Donald Trump suggesting the repeal of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act in an Oct.6 tweet. (Section 230 provides legal immunity for internet companies.)
REPEAL SECTION 230!!!

Social media’s war on political speech, particularly that of conservatives, appears to be getting worse. Perhaps the president is correct, and it’s time to revoke federal protections for internet companies.
