A week after Facebook banned a group of prominent far-right influencers for violating its policies against "dangerous individuals and organizations," the company has removed another page that was being used to circumvent the ban.

Facebook took down the page after being asked about it by National Observer.

The now-removed Facebook page is associated with a website called "Summit News," which is run by Paul Joseph Watson, editor of the controversial website Infowars. Summit News hosts all of Watson's content, much of which is cross-posted verbatim on Infowars.
