US (TNO)In a latest incident of censorship, Facebook on Friday(31st Dec) temporarily restricted journalist Kevin Sessums’s account, after he called US President-elect Donald Trump’s supporters “a nasty fascistic lot” in a post.Known for his two best-selling memoirs, Sessums said that he shared a Facebook post from ABC News’ political analyst Matthew Dowd that read: “In the last few hours I have been called by lovely ‘christian’ Trump fans: a jew, f******, retard. To set record straight: divorced Catholic.”Sessums was later notified by Facebook that the post violated the company’s “community standards” and was barred from posting for 24 hours.It was only after the Guardian contacted Facebook that they reviewed and restored the post of the journalist.“We are very sorry about this mistake,” the Guardian quoted a spokesman of Facebook.“The post was removed in error and restored as soon as we were able to investigate.
