Biden campaign fury at blocked Facebook ads
Thousands of ads from Joe Biden's election campaign and some from President Trump's have been mistakenly blocked by Facebook. The social network's policy to ban any new ads a week before election day as part of its crackdown on misinformation kicked in on Tuesday, but pre-approved ads should still run. In a series of tweets, Mr Biden's digital director Rob Flaherty expressed his anger that ads were being blocked in the crucial final week of campaigning. In a statement, he described the situation as a "Fiasco" leading to "Widespread issues that are plaguing all of our ad campaigns since the onset of new ad restrictions". President Trump's campaign confirmed that some of its ads were also blocked.
