She is digging herself a hole…
Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren has been sharing Facebook ads that insist Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook are supporting Donald Trump’s re-election.
However, Zuckerberg hasn’t supported Trump.
Also, Warren knows Zuckerberg hasn’t supported Trump. The ad itself states, “You’re probably shocked, and you might be thinking, ‘how could this possibly be true?’ Well, it’s not.”
Warren’s false ads focus on Facebook’s decision to exempt specific political advertising from spreading third-party fact checks. That policy has been in the spotlight following CNN’s rejection of what it called “demonstrably false” Trump campaign ads—ads Facebook allowed to run.
- FB spokesperson reply: “If Senator Warren wants to say things she knows to be untrue, we believe Facebook should not be in the position of censoring that speech.”
Conclusively: This is where every story in the news has ties to a larger narrative, but for this…we’ll let you choose. Warren vs. Zuckerberg, Warren vs. Trump, Facebook vs. regulators, Facebook vs. political misinformation, misinformation vs. free speech.
