It’s one thing to argue that there were voting irregularities (i.e., fraud) in the 2020 election, but we’ve been rather horrified at how much more social media sites like Facebook and Twitter are cracking down on “misinformation” in the aftermath of the election — and add cable news to that equation. You can’t question the integrity of the election. Why not? You just can’t. President Trump held a press conference to lay out what he saw as examples of voter fraud and CNN and others cut away from the president’s “lie after lie after lie.”
Women First for America is planning a March for Trump, but event management and ticketing site Eventbrite has delisted its event, citing its policy of not permitting “events, content, or creators that share or promote potentially harmful information.” At least that was the email sent out by “Eventbrite Trust and Safety.”

If a platform has a "Trust and Safety" do not count on it for anything important.

Potentially harmful misinformation?????

I am going to de-platform myself from @eventbrite for this blatant act of political censorship!

That’s cute @eventbrite. How is a March on Washington against Terms of Service?
— Anne Hutchinson (@bringmecheese) November 10, 2020
Wow @eventbrite – I always thought you were shady and now you confirmed it. I’m guessing you have the mentality of preschoolers 😂

How is this a surprise? It’s the scumbag liberals cancel culture. They only believe in the 1st amendment if it makes them feel warm and fuzzy and it’s something they agree with. The hypocrisy is outrageously mind blowing!!

I'm not sure what terms they violated. How is this spreading "potentially harmful information?"

If they don't want the business of 70+ million Americans, that's okay with me.

Who determines misinformation? Thought police

I’d like to see where in their TOS it actually says this and what authority or expertise they have to ID “potentially harmful misinformation.” Everybody and his brother thinks he’s a “fact checker” nowadays. This is just stupid. 🙄

“Misinformation” seems to be the catch-all excuse for censorship. As Twitchy reported earlier today, New York Times tech columnist Kevin Roose was amazed Facebook would allow “misinformation” like stories about Attorney General William Barr authorizing the Justice Department to look into voting irregularities … something that’s 100 percent true.
NYT tech columnist beclowns himself pretty spectacularly over the 'right-wing misinformation' dominating Facebook https://t.co/odExtIp7tq
