    (laughing) Oh no! The Trump campaign made a couple of satire ads mocking Joe Biden and doctored some photos to do it! Shocking! It's a sign of the apocalypse!

    Frankly, it works. It works for everyone but lefties, who have no sense of humor.

    Did you read the text?

    "“Deep in the heart of Delaware, Joe Biden sits in his basement. Alone. Hiding. Diminished,”

    How could anyone read that and not understand it's intended as satire?

    Even funnier is this:

    (laughing) How funny is that?

    Dude. He complains about fake news because there's an endless amount of fake news being produced, much of it by the MSM about him, and deliberately distorting what he's said or done.

    If you'll remember, the term "fake news" was created by the Clinton campaign and immediately jumped on by the MSM. Trump supporters and the Right reacted to it by starting a list of MSM and leftist articles that included fake news. Within ten days, the list was too long to keep track of, anymore, and the MSM had dropped that meme like a hot potato. The reality was that the biggest fake news creators and purveyors are them.

    The important consideration in this thread is that these internet publishers aren't banning news outlets from the Left, only from the Right.

    You're a simple-minded man, and yours was a simple-minded post.

    Nice article. Of course, it accuses the Epoch Times, but then doesn't actually tell us how the Epoch Times is the party responsible for these fake accounts.

    Red flag goes up that the Atlantic Council is the source of many of these accusations. The Atlantic Council, if you'll remember, is an ultra left-wing "think tank" that provided many of the skeeviest members of the Obama Administration, like Susan Rice.

    At least the article has the honesty to admit that the accounts weren't pulled for bad content. At least it posts that the Epoch Times denies any connection. But by then, that information is buried in multiple unsubstantiated accusations.

    Gee, I wonder if NBC and ABC were similarly limited when they published those doctored videos and images, a while back. Or how about the NYT for that giant pile of bullshit known as the 1619 project. Even left-wing historians object to the accuracy of that one, so surely the NYT must have had its content flagged, too, right?

    What am I talking about, of course they haven't. Because this isn't about fake news and fake content, it's about limiting the speech of non-Leftists.

    And it's intended to be mockingly humorous. Obvious to everyone but you lefties.

    What? Sucxx, it's a campaign ad dripping with satire. Meh, so what it's within a campaign ad, there's no rule against that, and it's cleverly done. It's not the first and it won't be the last.

    You could it put it on the side of an over-sized helium filled balloon (like you'd see in Macy's parade) and it wouldn't be obvious to that crowd.

    Great news source.
    Too bad you can’t handle facts.

    Facebook and Twitter have lost all credibility with their "stance on false information" policies. When it's ok for an Iranian leader to post "Death to Jews and Zionists" but Trump gets censored for "misinformation," every American should raise the BS flag.

    Let's face it, Facebook doesn't know which Trump ads belong to Trump and which ads are Russian interference. The only logical solution is to remove all Trump ads.

    Well, and Biden ads, too, since the same can be said about them.
