Facebook says it does not want to act as a censor, as videos of violence, such as those documenting police brutality or the horrors of war, can serve an important purpose.
Facebook says it will require advertisers who want to run either political ads or so-called "issue ads" -which may not endorse a specific candidate or party but which discuss political topics- to verify themselves.
