Facebook has removed a series of pages managed by former White House strategist Steve Bannon. The New York Times reports that.

 

The seven pages, with a total of nearly 2.5 million followers, contained misleading information and false reports of voting fraud in the US presidential election.

Facebook has also removed two videos taken by Bannon and distributed across the platform for inciting violence.

Twitter took account of Bannon off the web last week, and YouTube removed a video in which the former adviser to President Donald Trump advocated violence against two key US officials, including leading immunologist Anthony Fauci.

Bannon is credited with being one of the architects of Trump’s 2016 election victory, after which he was appointed a key adviser to the White House, where he left in 2017.
