A European news site has begun censoring its own reports, withholding some stories and reviews from its Facebook page because of the social media platform’s threats over its reporting on immigration.
Voice of Europe said Facebook has recently suspended its moderators. One has been suspended for 30 days another was suspended for 24 hours after posting a photograph of Poles protesting behind a banner saying “Mohammed not welcome.”
“While we’ve changed nothing in our postings, Facebook’s behaviour towards us changed. Several innocent postings were a reason for Facebook to suspend our moderators.”
