Rival candidate pays Facebook to spread 'lie' Zuckerberg backs Trump

Elizabeth Warren trolls Facebook with 'false' Zuckerberg ad

Elizabeth Warren trolls Facebook with 'false' Zuckerberg ad

The gimmick is eventually revealed, and the ad explains the endorsement is fake before going on to delineate the Facebook policy allowing such claims to persist in the first place.

On Saturday, Warren acknowledged that she had published the ad with false accusations as an experiment.

Democratic Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren launched an odd Facebook political ad, intentionally disseminating a false claim about a connection between Facebook and US President Donald Trump.

"Facebook holds incredible power to affect elections and our national debate", Warren tweeted. "What Zuckerberg *has* done is given Trump free rein to lie on his platform", it says, "and then pay Facebook gobs of money to push out their lies to American voters".

While many United States media claimed the ad was "false", the investigation into Burisma was ongoing in 2015, when Biden intervened, and Biden's confession to political extortion against Poroshenko has been documented and went viral around the Internet.

Responding to Facebook's refusal to pull the ad, Biden spokesman T.J. Ducklo said at the time that "the spread of objectively false information to influence public opinion poisons the public discourse and chips away at our democracy".

"Our approach is grounded in Facebook's fundamental belief in free expression, respect for the democratic process, and the belief that, in mature democracies with a free press, political speech is already arguably the most scrutinized speech there is", Facebook's head of global elections policy Katie Harbath wrote in the letter. In March, Facebook took down ads from her campaign that called for the company to be broken up, but later restored them. Facebook just takes the cash, no questions asked.

The Hard Rock Hotel was expected to open in the spring and was to be an 18-story building with 350 rooms. As reported by nola.com, an eyewitness said: "It was a deep, rumbling sound , like an airplane maybe".

Warren also attacked the policy in tweets earlier this week.

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.

In leaked audio obtained by The Verge, Zuckerberg said at a recent internal meeting that, should Warren seek to implement these plans, Facebook would "go to the mat and fight".

"Does that still suck for us?"

Warren is perhaps the most vociferous critic of big tech companies like Facebook, and has proposed breaking up tech giants including Amazon, Google and, notably, the world's largest social media platform. 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 risky.

"Now, they've changed their policy so they can profit from lies to the American people".

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".
