Meta, the parent company of Facebook, announced its new “policies and safeguards” for combating misinformation during the 2022 US midterm elections. Meta disclosed the additional policies under the heading “Connecting People With Reliable Information.“
This announcement was made via a blog post on Tuesday. Meta said it would implement a series of policies to be used in the 2022 midterm elections, which are in tune with the same guidelines the platform used during the 2020 election.

The changes to these policies come as Meta announced its intent to significantly reduce the reach of political content on both Facebook and Instagram. Twitter had also introduced similar policies last week as they claimed it was in an attempt to “protect civic conversation” ahead of the midterms.
Those policies include “Preventing Election and Voter Interference,” “Connecting People With Reliable Information,” and “Transparency Around Elections and Advertising.” Meta said it would maintain policies and protections compatible with the presidential election, including policies barring vote misinformation and linking people to trustworthy information.

Meta President of Global Affairs Nick Clegg wrote in the announcement, “With the 2022 US midterms on the horizon, we are setting out how our approach applies in this election cycle, which is largely consistent with the policies and safeguards we had in place during the 2020 US Presidential election.”
The company said it would maintain policies and protections “consistent” with the presidential election, including policies barring vote misinformation and linking people to trustworthy information. It also mentioned that the company would continue sending notifications to Facebook users with voting information and its partnership with election officials.
In a March 2021 study, advocacy group Avaaz said Meta completely failed to limit misinformation and allowed billions of views for known false content. In fact, it looks more like the company was pushing specific propaganda while blocking some under the guise of eliminating misinformation.
Nick Clegg said, “To simplify the process from the last cycle, any edits related to creative, placement, targeting and optimisation won’t be permitted. We will reject ads encouraging people not to vote or calling into question the legitimacy of the upcoming election.”
However, this all looks pretty familiar and intentional. Considering how these media have been pushing the democrat agenda for a while now, they might as well make their plans to allow only democrat campaigns and ads to the majority of the audience.
In Short if they dont like it, it will get banned

Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) blasted the company in a tweet earlier this month. He tweeted, “Facebook made sure no one saw the Hunter Biden laptop story before the 2020 election,” McCarthy wrote. “But now that America has record inflation, rising crime, & a border crisis — all as a result of Dem policies — Facebook is shutting down more ‘political content’ to hide the truth from Americans.”
Funny how they always do this right before an election. Things they’ve labeled “False News” so far: 87K IRS will target middle class, abortion clinics closing in wake of “Roe”, selling strategic oil reserves is harmful, and Biden funds free crack pipes. https://t.co/dQb4PDp2Pe

These new policies prove that not only does Biden have total control of the FBI, DOJ, and IRS, but he also has authority over the social media platforms. All that is left for him and other democrats to control now is every individual’s personal life.
