Elizabeth Warren Criticizes Twitter’s Ban On Political Ads Because It Covers Climate Change

Published

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is not at all happy with Twitter’s recent decision to ban political ads because they block ads about climate change, one of the many pet issues that Democrats have been running on for the last several election cycles.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire:

But her concerns seem to end at social media political ads she disagrees with. When Twitter announced a crackdown on political ads — like the one Warren is pushing for Facebook — Warren lashed out at the social media platform for censoring important content because Twitter’s definition of “politics” includes contentious issues like “climate change.”

“Twitter’s new ad policy will allow fossil fuel companies to buy ads defending themselves and spreading misleading info—but won’t allow organizations fighting the climate crisis to buy ads holding those companies accountable. We need accountability,” the Democratic presidential contender wailed in a tweet.

Just last month, Warren, of course, made the opposite argument against Facebook, buying an intentionally misleading political ad on the social network to demonstrate that Facebook does not adquately police purchased content.

The ad in question started off by claiming that Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, endorsed Donald Trump for president and went on to end with Warren revealing the whole ad was a farce meant to see if the Facebook ad censors would approve of the advertisement.

Warren said the ad “got approved quickly.”

Facebook responded that the FCC doesn’t want broadcast companies censoring candidates’ free speech saying it’s better for voters to decide, not companies.

Twitter on the other hand is taking the opposite approach. The social media giant announced last week they would be policing all political content — including issue-based content — on its platform as part of its effort to combat the spread of misinformation.

VIDEO: Lindsey Graham Says He’s Not Watching Impeachment Hearings. ‘This Couldn’t Happen In A Parking Ticket Case.’

Published

On Tuesday evening, Sen. Lindsey Graham made an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program to chit-chat about the impeachment hearings that kicked off on Wednesday, where he stated that he wouldn’t be watching the hearings because the whole thing is a “threat to the presidency; I don’t want to legitimize it; it’s un-American; it denies the basics of due process.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: Graham asserted, “To every American who’s going to watch tomorrow: this could not happen in your case. This couldn’t happen in a parking ticket case. This couldn’t happen in any civil matter in America because due process requires the ability of every American to call witnesses on their behalf — except for President Trump.” Hannity started the exchange by noting that Graham had said if there were no due process in the impeachment inquiry, the issue would be dead in the Senate. Graham answered, “I think there’d be a danger to the presidency in the future for us to legitimize what’s going on in the House. There’s no civil proceeding in America, no criminal proceeding in America that denies a person to tell their side of the story by calling witnesses except in the House. And every American deserves the right to confront their accuser. That’s not being done in this case. So I don’t want to legitimize this because it’s a threat to the presidency.” Graham continued on saying, “Then there’s the allegation. The allegation is that Donald J. Trump withheld aid to Ukraine unless the Ukrainian government investigated Joe Biden and Hunter Biden for corruption. The problem with the allegation is that it’s not true. The aid was delivered to the Ukrainian government and there was no investigation of Joe Biden and Hunter Biden.” “How long does it take to dispose…

Hillary Clinton is running for president in 2020. Most likely. The writing is on the wall. You don’t remain as active as she has after losing a bid for the Oval Office if you don’t plan to run again. Also, her latest remarks aren’t doing anything to dispel notions that she won’t run. From Daily Wire: Two-time failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton continued to add fuel to the fire on Tuesday over speculation she may enter the 2020 presidential race with a new series of remarks that she made on the radio where she declined to rule out a late entry to the race. Hillary screeched, “I, as I say, never, never, never say never. I will certainly tell you, I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it.” WATCH: 🗣️”Never, never, never say never” @HillaryClinton refuses to rule out running again to be President of the USA To hear @EmmaBarnett’s full interview with Hillary and @ChelseaClinton, check out #EmmaBarnettGetsAnswers on @BBCSounds https://twitter.com/bbc5live/status/1194229638425432066?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1194229638425432066&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fboston-university-student-group-triggered-by-ben-shapiro-speech-title-shapiro-responds Reactions: “My butler, my other butler, my food chewer, my blood boy, the hitman I keep on retainer, my other blood boy.

Check this out, via Daily Caller: President Donald Trump’s campaign is trolling vanquished Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton with an ‘error’ page that shows Clinton holding a microphone behind the presidential seal. The website’s ‘error’ page gloats over the results of the 2016 election, where Trump defeated Clinton with 306 electoral college votes. PHOTO: During a recent event, the twice-failed presidential candidate likened circumstances of Trump’s America to Nazi Germany. Yeah, no joke.
