  • Elizabeth Warren trolls Facebook with 'false' Zuckerberg ad

"We do not submit speech by politicians to our independent fact-checkers, and we generally allow it on the platform even when it would otherwise breach our normal content rules", Clegg said in a speech last month.

In its ad, the Warren camp leads off with the lie about the Facebook endorsement of Trump after a deceptive "Breaking news" leader.

Elizabeth Warren executed a master troll-level move to call out Facebook's new policy of allowing false statements in campaign ads... by pushing a false statement that Facebook had endorsed Donald Trump for president in her latest campaign ad on Facebook.

"Facebook holds incredible power to affect elections and our national debate", Warren tweeted. "But what Zuckerberg has done is given Donald Trump free reign to lie on his platform - and then to pay Facebook gobs of money to push out their lies to American voters".

The Trump campaign is now spending $1 million a *week* on ads including ones containing known lies-ads that TV stations refuse to air because they're false. She's running an ad on the social network that deliberately contains a falsehood.

Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is a top contender in the Democratic Party's presidential primary, is challenging a key policy from Facebook, one of the largest purveyors of electoral information in the country.

This isn't the first rift between the lawmaker and Facebook. Through the policy, Warren would "unwind tech mergers that illegally undermine competition " - citing Amazon for its takeover of Whole Foods, Facebook for its takeover of WhatsApp and Instagram and Google's for its takeover of the mapping app Waze.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg leaves a meeting with Senator John Cornyn in his office on Capitol Hill on September 19, 2019, in Washington, D.C. Warren has repeated criticized Facebook while campaigning, and leaked audio of a Facebook meeting in July revealed Zuckerberg promising to fight Warren's proposal to breakup the company were she elected President.

"Does that still suck for us?"

The Washington Post article which Warren shared explains that "as Facebook cracked down on disinformation flooding its social media platforms, executives chose to codify a key loophole: Politicians remained free to lie at will-unbound by the rules created to stop everyday users from peddling viral falsehoods". And as the fourth Democratic debate nears and early-voting states are paying closer attention to the candidates, she said letting false claims circulate is unsafe. "But Facebook just cashes Trump's checks". "Now, they've changed their policy so they can profit from lies to the American people", she said before linking to a petition calling for Zuckerberg to be held "accountable".

Recently, Warren purchased a Facebook advertisement that received over 100,000 impressions, claiming that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg "just endorsed Donald Trump for re-election".
