Meta rejects Craig Kelly’s demand to suspend factchecking on Facebook during election campaign

The demand for verifiable facts according to Kelly is a restriction on free speech. His freedom is to say anything he wants true, false or even insane is an individual’s right because Facebook has banned him but not the UAP. A vote for the UAP is a vote for the LNP and a vote for the LNP is a vote for the new coalition of the L-NP-UAP and there isn’t any love between them.

Although Kelly is banned from the platform, his party is not, and according to Facebook’s transparency report, the United Australia party has spent over $513,000 on ads in the last 90 days alone on Facebook – the largest political ad spend in Australia on the platform. Party founder Clive Palmer has separately spent over $161,000 in the same period. The Liberal party spent over $44,000 in the same period.
