We have been banned by Facebook for three days for posting a link to an external website exposing that the notorious fake news site Yournewswire, run by Sean Adl-Tabatabai, has now manifested as Newspunch.com.

If you search Google for “yournewswire.com” several of the top results indicate the site is fake news (having your own dedicated category on Snopes.com is a dead giveaway).’
