The National Religious Broadcasters sounded an alarm that media outlets such as Facebook, Google, Apple, AT&T and Comcast have adopted policies that violate the fundamental rules of free expression, the Christian Post reports. The NRB released a report analyzing the content policies of media platforms, and found, among other instances, that Apple's iTunes App Store rejected an app for a document that upheld the sanctity of life and marriage, that Google blocked a Massachusetts pro-family website and prohibited a group from purchasing space for an anti-abortion ad, that Facebook removed content deemed "anti-gay," and that Comcast blocked or delayed peer-to-peer file sharing of the King James Bible.
