Where should Facebook draw its censorship line?

Elizabeth Heng,  Republican candidate for Congress in California, joined Ross to talk about her campaign 

Apple, Facebook and YouTube banned Alex Jones and his disgusting conspiracy-peddling "InfoWars" from their platforms. On the one hand, Jones is a congenital liar pandering to the gullible. On the other hand, unless he's taking their money or otherwise tangibly harming them, or creating imminent harm to others, that's not illegal.  Of course, those are private companies which can impose their own standards much more strict than legal standards. 

The question is where does their sensitivity to scumbags like Jones* drift into hypersensitivity or the ability of political activists to get the companies to, at least temporarily, block what should obviously be permitted content, such as the following ad for congressional candidate Elizabeth Heng. 

In addition to seeing the stuff at the beginning of the ad that caused Facebook to react the way it did, I strongly encourage you to watch the entire ad because I think this young woman is a wonderful example of the sort of person the GOP should be recruiting wherever possible.

Her November contest against a 7-term incumbent Democrat looks winnable. I encourage folks to make a donation to her campaign.

*I apologize if that description was offensive...to scumbags.
