Facebook recently made radical changes to their community standards allowing for users to illegally call for incitements to violence and post death threats if the individual is considered dangerous by the media then redacted them. Given there are very different political biases amongst varying media outlets this gave way for very dangerous rhetoric. Not only was it still illegal to do so, but they were empowering people to break the law under fringe circumstances. We’ve seen the media smear so many people in a way that this policy would have only escalated dangerous situations into worse ones.
