Facebook suspended 30,000 French accounts ten days before a hotly contested election.

Critics argue the move is in an attempt to censor Marine Le Pens surging popularity.

Japan Today reported:

Facebook Inc said on Thursday it suspended 30,000 accounts in France as the social network giant steps up efforts to stop the spread of fake news, misinformation and spam.

The move, which comes 10 days before the first round of a hotly
contested French presidential election, is among the most aggressive
yet by Facebook to move against accounts that violate its terms of
service, rather than simply respond to complaints.

Well for the last month Facebook has been displaying sponsored
advertisements with eyecatchers such as 'The Queen has died' and various
film stars are dead.

I've seen that. I think Facebook is in on it as there is no way to
report these fake news items.
