Facebook suppresses post about Facebook suppressing “The Post”

Over the weekend CFACT posted an important editorial to Facebook.  It is from The New York Post and explains what happened when Facebook "fact checkers" suppressed questions about China's veracity about the origins of the Coronavirus.  Not only did Facebook suppress the original Post article, they suppressed CFACT's posting of the editorial!
