Did Facebook's Oversight Board make the right decision on Trump's ban?

Facebook's independent oversight board ruled Wednesday to uphold the company's January decision to suspend the Facebook and Instagram accounts of former President Donald Trump. But, the board said, the indefinite time frame of the suspension "was not appropriate." The board effectively punted the decision on the length of the suspension back to Facebook, saying it "insists" the company "review this matter to determine and justify a proportionate response that is consistent with the rules that are applied to other users of its platform." Did the board do its job? CNBC's Jon Fortt reviews both sides of the debate.
