April 18, 2016-- Professor Eugene Volokh was quoted by GIZMODO in an article that addressed an issue posed by an internal poll of Facebook employees on what responsibility Facebook might have to help prevent President Trump in 2017.
“Facebook can promote or block any material that it wants,” Volokh noted. “Facebook has the same First Amendment right as the New York Times. They can completely block Trump if they want. They block him or promote him.”
