Facebook is banning the pro-Trump Republican PAC "The Committee to Defend the President" from advertising, after the PAC repeatedly posted content identified as false by third-party fact-checkers.
"As a result of the Committee to Defend the President's repeated sharing of content determined by third-party fact-checkers to be false, they will not be permitted to advertise for a period of time on our platform," said Facebook spokesman Andy Stone Thursday.
The company declined to specify the length of the advertising ban or which posts prompted it.
Politicians' ads and posts are not subject to Facebook fact-checking, a policy that has drawn heat from lawmakers, but content from political groups like PACs can be fact-checked.
The committee's Facebook page, which has almost 1 million "likes," has had four "false" or "partly false" fact-checking labels attached to content since the start of July.
