FaceBook Removes Elizabeth Warren Political Ads Calling for the Breakup of FaceBook, Other Tech Giants

Looks like FaceBook wants to make Elizabeth Warren's case for her.

Facebook has removed several ads placed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign that called for the breakup of Facebook and other tech giants.

The ads, which had identical images and text, touted Warren's recently announced plan to unwind "anti-competitive" tech mergers, including Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp and Instagram.

Facebook, Amazon, and Google," read the ads, which Warren's campaign had placed Friday. "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."

A message on the three ads reads: "This ad was taken down because it goes against Facebook's advertising policies."

A Facebook spokesperson confirmed the ads had been taken down and said the company is reviewing the matter.

Meanwhile:



ZeroHedge says that FaceBook has not told them which post or link violated FaceBook's terms and FaceBook will not explain the reasons for the ban.

We were surprised by this action as neither prior to this seemingly arbitrary act of censorship, nor since, were we contacted by Facebook with an explanation of what "community standard" had been violated or what particular filter or article had triggered the blanket rejection of all Zero Hedge content.

Alternatively, it is just as possible that Facebook simply decided to no longer allow its users to share our content in retaliation for our extensive coverage of what some have dubbed the platform's "many problems", including chronic privacy violations, mass abandonment by younger users, its gross and ongoing misrepresentation of fake users, ironically - in retrospect - its systematic censorship and back door government cooperation (those are just links from the past few weeks).

...

Unfortunately, as noted above, we still don't know what exact event precipitated this censorship, and any attempts to get feedback from the company with the $500 billion market cap, have so far remained unanswered.

Quick, I need a post from a corporate-funded NeverTrumper to reassure me again that all of this censorship and political battlespace preparation is totally, totally necessary because some nasty but completely low-level trolls said some bad things on Twitter about the Salon #Hot25 All-Stars.

So, to make sure @OdinsTears69 and @CelticAvenger69 can't say anything mean about David French, we have to accept a regime of almost unbounded censorship from our Tech Overlords.

That makes total sense. Sometimes you have to destroy the Free Speech village in order to save it.

Oh, PS: And you sure as shit aren't going to get those fat corporate subsidies proposing restrictions on corporate censorship.

Of Course He Does: Zuckerberg Wants FaceBook to Build a Mind-Reading Machine.

The idea is to allow people to use their thoughts to navigate intuitively through augmented reality--the neuro-driven version of the world recently described by Kevin Kelly in these pages. No typing--no speaking, even--to distract you or slow you down as you interact with digital additions to the landscape: driving instructions superimposed over the freeway, short biographies floating next to attendees of a conference, 3D models of furniture you can move around your apartment.

Wait until they reverse the process and start mind-inscribing!

Zuckerberg also talked about establishing a "FaceBook Supreme Court" to handle all of its bannings and censorship.

Well, as I pointed out downstairs, to be fair -- I think Warren used Facebooks IP (their logo) in her ad, which goes against their advertising rules (for obvious reasons -- it'd be too easy to spoof FB, they could dilute their trademark, etc. etc.)

They can be a provider, in which case they can't edit content.

Or they can be a Publisher, edit content, but then be held accountable for said content.

They don't get to do both in the US.

They are now forcing EU and China and Islam's laws, on the US, through there editorial conduct.

They need to be hit with the public accommodation lawsuits IMO.

I actually am not sure how much I support breaking up Facebook. I think it will flame out on its own as new platforms emerge and it's not a necessary tool, per se.

But Google, it needs to be broken up. It operates more as a utility.

Of course they make something useful. If they didn't, billions wouldn't use them. It's a fallacy to suggest that no price will be paid for breaking them up. They'll probably become less innovative and efficient, at least initially. That's a price I'm willing to pay.

They provide a service that people use (hence, I guess, meeting the definition of 'useful') I am not sure necessary is in there. I might also argue how 'innovative' either of the companies are. Although, I will admit, they have leveraged the ability to monetize fairly effectively.

34 there's an interesting example of the Too Many Options paradox that happens in writing classes.

If your teacher tells you to write ANYTHING, you will be paralyzed (unless you just turn in something else you wrote a year ago and pretend it was written for this assignment).

But if they tell you "I want you to write a scene about a family having dinner with something uncomfortable -- a stranger, an intruder, a secret, some bad news -- intruding," you'll have a story half written with an hour's worth of thinking about it.

It is a strange phenomena.

Back in the '90s, the goal of every tech start up was to get to IPO. They built out entire companies and everything.

Now the goal is to get to the point where FB/ Google / Microsoft buys them. So they just build out their tech.

It's kind of weird. I mean, I get why they do it, but still..

Good lord, and Google "accidentally" put mics in their Nest home security systems? How do you "accidentally" put technology - an actual PART into a device? They're scrimping for every $.03 they can save by swapping out a cheaper piece of plastic - but sure, let's put a microphone in, and "accidentally" have the ability for it to "accidentally" switch on and be monitored by the software we "accidentally" designed for a device that isn't there.

I think it was a good movie and I don't read any politics into it. Tom Cruise could have taken an anti-religious shot in the beginning; instead, if anything, it's a shot against militant atheists.

The movies always feature Tom Cruise doing insanely stupid and risky things to save a team member. In MI:4, he gave the bad guys both nuclear missiles AND the codes for blowing them up for some not-very-good-reason.

In MI:5, he does whatever a hostile (?) agent working for a definitely hostile agent tells him to do. Seriously-- that whole movie is him carrying out missions assigned to him by the gray agent Ilsa Faust, who herself is taking orders from the black agent Solomon Lane.

He just piles more and more money on to terrible bets. He is the ultimate in the Gambler's Fallacy.

This is just Tom Cruise's idea of what a hero is, some crazy degenerate gambler who is always willing to risk a city getting nuked to save a friend or whatever. It's not political. It's silly, but it's not political.

That extends to not baking cakes.

So on and so forth.
It may sound mean and it is, but if a business wants to lose that portion of the populace it has issues with, well, that is THEIR business.
To paraphrase the O one, the government didn't build that, and has no say in the policies of said business.

it's a superhero movie. When's the last time you saw Superman saying, "Perhaps I must let the villagers here die from the flood so that I can stop the flood before it hits the city."

Superheroes NEVER make those kind of messy (but moral) decisions. They always say, "I can win BOTH bets," and then do exactly that.

It's not ideological. It's just how these unrealistic superhero movies work. Superheroes NEVER accept a mixed victory.

If it's the same one, the only reason I watched was cuz long trans-Pacific flight, and I'd seen that Cruz did his own stunts, including the jump from the transport plane. I envy that - he probably does it because it's fun to do your own stunts, when you can.


A Boeing plane. But the 787, not the newest 737 (duh, long flight). Very nice. Just because it's a smaller plane, it's nicer. Fewer people. And the leg-room in regular coach was fine - can't imagine paying for extra.


And on-topic, has anyone who knows/understands written an article on how - with the House in racist-authoritarian hands, and thus no legislation possible - the publisher/public accommodation* thing can be used to hamstring the censorship? That is, lawsuits, or DOJ action (don't laugh ..... OK, I did laugh, too)?

Ehh... Maybe. I think it's just what the angel investors and VC firms want.

Look at it from an efficiency standpoint: you invest $10 million in a start up. Do you want them to spend half of that setting up a business with back office staff, trying to build out sales, and HR, and accounting departments, and figuring out distribution, etc.

OR, do you want them to invest the $10 million in nerds who can come up with a good product that you can then pitch to one of the big tech companies?

I think they've just run the cost / benefit analysis, and they get a better (and faster) return on their investments, with a lower chance of failure, if the companies try to build out a good product then cash out instead of trying to go public and competing with the big boys.

Unfortunately, you're still describing a non-existance ideal situation.

What we have now is one in which businesses that lean to the right are compelled by law to close, be subject to penalties, or capitulate to the leftist demands, both spurious and capricious.

Those businesses that lean left are never hindered or harmed, and in fact are allowed to discriminate at will not just in patronage, but in employment - that being the more insidious and destructive feature of our current predicament.

The political landscape now encourages the left to discriminate and harms any business that doesn't hew to the current leftist mania.

Seems the censorship thing can be addressed directly, by forcing these companies to decide whether they are publishers or not. My understanding (perhaps flawed) is that this would make it very hard for them to behave in their capricious political manner we are discussing.


Separately, was it willow who mentioned compelling them to disclose use of personal info? I'd go to the beautiful and I think devastating approach of mandating "opt-out" for use of *all* personal info. This really should have been done years ago, and might have diluted the first-mover advantage that helped some of the worst giants get so big in the first place.
