An ad for Dennis Prager’s documentary “No Safe Spaces,” which focuses on the stifling of free speech on college campuses, has been rejected by Facebook because the buyer of the ad will not identify as partisan.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Facebook recently implemented a new policy that requires organizations to disclose their political affiliations when purchasing an ad related to “issues of national importance.” The rule has led to apolitical organizations having their ads blocked, including fundraisers for veterans.
In the Prager situation, a California charter school wanted to advertise a screening of “No Safe Spaces” on its campus, only to have Facebook demand that the school identify as partisan. Since the school simply wanted to focus on the movie’s free speech angle and had no political affiliation, they refused to comply with Facebook’s demands.
