The Blaze Journalist Elijah Schaffer has been banned by Facebook and Instagram: Facebook and Instagram have permanently suspended BLAZE TV journalist Elijah Schaffer from their platforms without any explanation. His coverage of political and civil unrest in 2020 has allowed Schaffer to make quite a name for himself as an intrepid reporter. "It was mostly just pictures of my wife, dog and memories of my mom who recently died," Schaffer said on Twitter. "But big tech is relentless. Reporting the truth is now illegal," he added.
