Facebook pulls pages linked to ex-Trump aide Steve Bannon

FOLLOWING the lead of Twitter and YouTube, Facebook yesterday removed several pages linked to former Donald Trump adviser Steve Bannon, whose content pushed unsubstantiated allegations of election fraud.

According to the human rights group Avaaz, the social media giant took down seven pages directly linked to Bannon that had 2.45 million followers and that the group flagged to Facebook content monitors on Friday.
