It's becoming an all-too-familiar story.
A Gospel music group, Zion's Joy! posted its latest music video for fans on Facebook, spent $100 with the social media giant to "boost" its visibility, which got the post dropped because Facebook saw it as "political advertising."
It wasn't political advertising. That's absurd. There was no politics in it – just joyful praise music to Jesus.
That's just the latest scandal in how Facebook has become an arbitrary and capricious censor of content it doesn't like on the biggest town hall in America, compromising the First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and freedom of religion.
But the real scandal is bigger than that, as a House Judiciary Committee hearing illustrated Tuesday.
While Facebook is blocking content because of its crazy, irrational determination it is political advertising, Facebook and Google and the rest of the Silicon Valley cartel, have become de facto providers of massive amounts of content that indeed is politically loaded and the equivalent of many millions of dollars of free or in-kind advertising to the Democratic Party and its agenda.
