Fox & Friends Investigates Plot To Keep Right-Wing Radio Host Todd Starnes’ Thoughts Off Facebook

On Monday, Fox News Radio host Todd Starnes joined the hosts of Fox & Friends to discuss a recent politically incorrect post on his Facebook page that was removed due to supposed terms of use violations. The hosts noted that this is not the first time Facebook has gone after conservatives. Fox News Channel host Eric Bolling wondered if Facebook has an employee whose job was to review Starnes’ posts and remove any that could be interpreted as violating the terms of use.

Starnes recently posted this message on his Facebook:

I’m about as politically incorrect as you can get,” Starnes wrote on his Facebook page. “I’m wearing an NRA ball cap, eating a Chick-fil-A sandwich, reading a Paula Deen cookbook and sipping a 20-ounce sweet tea while sitting in my Cracker Barrel rocking chair with the Gather Vocal Band singing ‘Jesus Saves’ on the stereo and a Gideon’s Bible in my pocket. Yes sir, I’m politically incorrect and happy as a June bug.

Shortly after he posted this, Starnes claimed on Monday that his post was blocked and he was temporarily banned from the site for positing this message.

“You were bullying liberals,” Bolling observed.

“That’s exactly what I was doing,” Starnes replied.

He said that he reached out to Facebook to determine what was offensive in the above post but says that he was never informed exactly what terms of use were violated.

“Over the past year, I’ve been monitoring a lot of these attacks on conservative Facebook pages,” Starnes added. “People have been getting blocked. Many people can’t even repost things from my site on their pages or they’ll get in trouble.”

He says that Facebook even tried to shut down the site of a group of women who criticized the White House. “It looks like the folks at Facebook have a problem with conservatives,” Starnes asserted.

“I’m wondering if they have people specifically looking at what Todd Starnes is posting,” Bolling asked.
