Big Tech taking down political advertisements they don't like

Facebook and Google taking down Trump ads and Google banning conservative ads in Britain. They are claiming the ads are misleading, biased, or fake news -- but somehow they aren't taking down ads from the politicians they agree with.

And that's not enough for the anti-democratic tyrants in the EU.

The IndependentThe European Commission warned ahead of the UK general election that disinformation was still a problem and that there might be a case for EU-level intervention to reign it in.

So, the EU will intervene to squelch free speech shortly before an election where the major issue is whether the UK will leave the EU?

That stinks worse that the Pope's Saturday morning compose pile.
