Based on the headline, I thought this article was going to be little more than the usual hit piece on Facebook and Twitter, but it was actually very well-sourced and highlighted the back and forth problem facing both companies. They have to decide their stance on political advertising, and even though it's a grey area, they need to have a black and white policy. Trying to address the grey area with grey area policies would only cause bigger problems and possibly even wrongdoing if certain candidates or policies were refused by a platform.
