Facebook Will Ban New Political Ads in Week Before Election

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Facebook announced Thursday it will ban new political advertisements starting October 27, a week before the 2020 presidential election. CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the move will combat misinformation. Ads that already exist on Facebook's platform will still be allowed, but publishers will be prevented from altering their content or appearance. Some coverage from right-rated sources framed the decision as inevitable. Voices on both sides of the spectrum, particularly on the left, have questioned whether the effort will have a significant impact.
