Google to halt political ads ahead of inauguration

Wednesday, 13. January 2021 16:22

Google will ban political ads at least until the inauguration of United States President-elect Joe Biden, Axios reported on Wednesday, citing an email from the company.

The decision came as a result of the US Capitol riots on January 6 and is an extension of its initial decision regarding "sensitive events" which was put in place right after the violent protests.

Earlier, Facebook and Microsoft announced they are freezing all political spending as a result of the January 6 events.
