As Elizabeth Warren Plans to Break Up Big Tech Companies, Facebook Drops Anti-Tech Campaign Ads Published on Social Media Platform

SILICON VALLEY – Facebook removed several ads Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign published on the company’s social media platform, Politico reported Monday.

The ads, which Warren’s campaign placed on the platform Friday, promoted the Massachusetts senator’s plan to break up what she believes is Facebook and Amazon’s monopoly. Nearly a dozen other campaign ads addressing her proposal to slam tech companies were not affected.

“Three companies have vast power over our economy and our democracy. Facebook, Amazon, and Google” reads one of the ads. “We all use them. But in their rise to power, they’ve bulldozed competition, used our private information for profit, and tilted the playing field in their favor.”

Warren also wants to make it difficult for Google, Facebook, and other Silicon Valley giants to merge, thus hurting their business models.

Big Tech is using a content filtering system for online censorship.

NewsGuard works with Big-Tech to make it harder for you to find certain content they feel is 'missing context' or stories their editors deem "not in your best interest" - regardless of whether they are true and/or factually accurate. They also work with payment processors and ad-networks to cut off revenue streams to publications they rate poorly by their same bias standards. This should be criminal in America.

Forcing Google to abandon mergers with the likes of DoubleClick, for instance, would seriously harm its ability to pull in revenue. Separating the company from its ad business would make Google ads much less valuable. Warren’s proposal would also prevent Amazon from selling its own products through its platform.

Warren, who announced a White House bid in February, has not yet responded to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment about Facebook’s decision to ding the senator’s ads.
