Facebook Mum On Romney Threat Removal


Yesterday, we reported on a “Kill Mitt Romney” Facebook page that was created by Joshua Scott Albert.  Nearly four hours after we published, and after many readers and other Facebook users reported the page to Facebook, it was finally removed.

However, prior to the content being removed, CDN and many others received email responses from Facebook that stated:

“After reviewing your report, we were not able to confirm that the specific page you reported violates Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.”

When a Facebook representative was asked about this message, we were told, “the email you received is most likely because we had already removed the page and are responding to the report based on a deleted piece of content. Because it had already been removed by the time you received an update on the report, that’s what would have caused the response below.”

Nameless, Faceless Facebook PR Representative

Even though we provided many of these messages to the team at Facebook that were time-stamped over 2 hours before the content was removed, Facebook stuck to that explanation.

We also asked why it took nearly four hours for Facebook to remove the threat to Mitt Romney’s life, but again, we were stonewalled by the typical PR Response from the Facebook representative, who said, “we don’t discuss average time frames for reporting.  Whenever Facebook receives a report of a Page that violates our policies, we work to remove the Page immediately and this case is no different. As a resource, to learn more about our reporting procedures, see this infographic that might be helpful for your readers.”


Facebook declined to comment if law enforcement had been involved.

Conservative Daily News allows a great deal of latitude in the topics contributors choose and their approaches to the content. This is due to our approach that citizens have a voice, not only the mass media. Readers will likely not agree with every contributor or every post, but find reasons to think about the topic and respond with comments. We value differing opinions as well as those that agree. Opinions of contributors are their own and do not necessarily reflect those of CDN, Anomalous Media or staff. Click here if you'd like to write for CDN.
