Facebook Takes Down Page for Latin American Broadcaster Telesur

HeadlineAug 14, 2018

For the second time this year, Facebook has taken down the page of the Latin American broadcaster Telesur English without explanation. In a statement, Telesur said, “This is an alarming development in light of the recent shutting down of pages that don’t fit a mainstream narrative.” Telesur is an international broadcaster that receives funding from the governments of Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua, Uruguay and Bolivia. Last week, Facebook also temporarily took down another page related to Venezuela, the page for the news outlet Venezuela Analysis.
