Facebook’s independent oversight board has upheld the company’s decision to ban President Trump from posting on Facebook and Instagram. But the board told the company that the current indefinite suspension of Trump is not okay and that they reinstate him or permanently ban the former President based on clear guidelines. Twitter has permanently barred Trump and just booted the Twitter account of a new blog Trump started, too. Back in January, we spoke with media law expert Ian Rosenberg about the bans when they first happened. Rosenberg is legal counsel for ABC News and author of a book called “The Fight for Free Speech."
