This is exactly the nightmare scenario of Facebook becoming the gatekeeper of news and information from the American public. Facebook put down a temporary ban on Texas high school football scores after the area round of the playoffs, Nov. 23, 2018.

CYPRESS — Facebook must not like that the Cy-Fair Bobcats and Cy Creek Cougars won tonight, because it tried to prevent the Cypress News Review from sharing final scores from Friday’s playoff football games.

The Cypress News Review immediately protested the ban and had to go through the process to re-authenticate, simply because we’re “too fast” at getting the news out there.

Late at night on Friday, Nov. 23, 2018, Facebook hit us with a temporary ban simply because the Cypress News Review ran an article with the day’s football scores.

Apparently, Texas high school football is too scary for the California tech company.

We were considering paying Facebook to “boost” our posts, but after this they will never, ever see a penny,” said Creighton Holub, publisher. “It’s 2018. Everyone in Cypress deserves better than what the Facebook elites are delivering. Join us over on https://cypressnewsrev.wpengine.com and get it straight from the horse’s mouth.

“The Cypress News Review will start moving toward other — better — ways to distribute what’s important to our fellow citizens. Although Facebook is allowing us back in, they’ve shown where their heart is, and it’s time we make Cypress greater than it’s ever been. We have long-term goals of providing actual hometown news the way that no one has ever seen in an area like this before, and Facebook never was a big factor in that plan.”
