US government wants to break up Apple

The argument bears a striking resemblance to arguments made by Republican politicians regarding Facebook's ability to remove or censor content with which they disagree, a complaint on the right that is generally treated like a whiny conspiracy by the left.

Yesterday, Warren made headlines when she vowed to dismantle big tech companies such as Amazon, Google and Facebook, for their monopoly on consumer information and also unwind previous acquisitions by these industry giants.

A Facebook spokesman said the ads were removed because they included an image of the Facebook logo, which is against the company's policies.

Warren is campaigning on a plan that includes breaking up large tech companies that she believes have grown too powerful. Elizabeth Warren (MA) on Friday calling for the breakup of tech giants, including Facebook, which has acquired Instagram and WhatsApp.

Politico first spotted the removal of Warren's ads on Monday and reported that three of them had been pulled down for violating Facebook's rules.

"We removed the ads because they violated our policies against use of our corporate logo", a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement Monday.

Fox News has on many previous occasions has tolerated Islamophobic and birther comments from its hosts and commentators. They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly", the statement read .

Warren called Facebook out on Twitter when the news broke about her ads being removed.

"Three companies have vast power over our economy and our democracy", the ads read, according to Politico. "We all use them".

Warren also wants to make it hard for Google, Facebook, and other Silicon Valley giants to merge, thus hurting their business models. Facebook's advertising policies prohibit the use of the company's corporate logo in ads.

Warren's plan calls to break up industry giants with global revenue that exceeds $25 billion USA, with Apple easily meeting the criteria. Almost a dozen other campaign ads addressing her proposal to slam tech companies were not affected.

"Curious why I think FB has too much power?"
