  • Facebook apologized to a right-wing non-profit group
    after it blocked some of its videos, making them invisible to
    its followers.
  • Facebook said the removal of the videos was a mistake,
    and they have been restored.

    act of deliberate censorship.

Facebook has apologized to American conservative non-profit group
PragerU after it blocked some of its videos.

PragerU (Prager University) was founded by talk host Dennis
Prager in 2009, and publishes five-minute videos containing short
lectures on topics such as economics and constitutional law. It
currently has more than three million followers on Facebook.

In a press release published on its website
on Friday,
PragerU said its last nine posts had been made invisible,
something which PragerU executive Craig Strazzeri said should
“deeply concern every single American.”

Facebook apologized to PragerU. A spokeswoman told Business
Insider: “The videos in question were mistakenly removed. While
we continue to research what caused this error, we have restored
the content because it does not break our Community Standards and
apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.”

PragerU was not convinced by Facebook’s apology. It called its
actions “deliberate censorship of conservative ideas.”

PragerU has previously accused Google of left-wing bias for
censoring its videos on YouTube, and
even brought a court case against the tech giant
. However,
the judge dismissed the case as Google and Youtube do not qualify
as “state-actors.”
