Facebook removes Advance NZ page

From The Panel, 4:42 pm on 16 October 2020
Facebook has removed the page for the Advance New Zealand party for repeatedly spreading misinformation about Covid-19.
A Facebook spokesperson told RNZ: "We don't allow anyone to share misinformation on our platforms about Covid-19 that could lead to imminent physical harm."
The party's Twitter account meanwhile is still operating, and Advance NZ says it wants an inquiry into what it calls "Facebook's  election interference".
