An amazing event occurred this week at a Facebook event in Beverly Hills.
Facebook scheduled the event to promote the new Facebook Watch video feature.
But the situation turned ugly when the invited “news reporters” screamed about Facebook allowing FOX News and Infowars on their platform.

This is not the first time liberal reporters have complained to Facebook about Infowars having access to their social media platform. CNN has called on Facebook to ban Infowars earlier this month. And left-wing activist Brennan Gilmore called on Facebook to eliminate Infowars in a Washington Post screed in March.
But the fact that “news” reporters called on Facebook to ban FOX News from their platform is a new leap for the American left. If Democrats and their mainstream media want FOX News eliminated from Facebook — the largest and most successful news organization in America today — then it is safe to say the American left wants ALL conservative publishers banned from the social media platform.
And as we have reported numerous times Facebook is already working overtime to eliminate conservative content from their platform.
A Gateway Pundit June study of top conservative news outlets found that Facebook has eliminated 93% of traffic to top conservative websites.
Facebook began eliminating conservative content after the 2016 election.
Here are the full results from our study.
We have another study on Facebook censorship coming out in July.
