Elizabeth Warren Trolls Facebook In New Ad

>>2020 hopeful Elizabeth Warren is taking
a big step in an effort to hold Facebook accountable for its role in spreading disinformation about
presidential candidates. So her campaign posted a fake advertisement
on Facebook, claiming that CEO Mark Zuckerberg endorsed Trump’s reelection but she didn’t
run the ad without a disclaimer. I wanna show you the ad. Take a look at the ad there and I know it’s
really small so I’m gonna read it to you. It says breaking news Mark Zuckerberg and
Facebook just endorsed Donald Trump for reelection. You’re probably shocked and you might be thinking
how could this possibly be true. Well, it’s not, sorry. But what Zuckerberg has done is given Donald
Trump free rein to lie on his platform. And then to pay Facebook gobs of money to
push out their lives to American voters. If Trump tries to lie in a TV ad most networks
will refuse to air it. But Facebook just cashes Trump’s checks. Facebook already helped elect Donald Trump
once, now they are deliberately allowing a candidate to intentionally lie to the American
people. It’s time to hold Mark Zuckerberg accountable. Add your name if you agree that was kind of
the end of it. So Facebook fired back and they posted the
FCC doesn’t want broadcast companies censoring candidates speech. We agree it’s better to let voters not companies
decide, which and then Warren hit back with you’re making my point here. It’s up to you whether you take money to promote
lies. And also some of this kind of confusing here. So almost 100 years ago, Congress mandated
radio and of course then later TV stations, they cannot pick and choose which political
candidates ads they can run. But I think there’s they don’t have to run
ads from non political candidates. So if it’s from an organization or group they
don’t have to run those ads.>>And the rules are much different with cable
networks versus public networks?>>There really aren’t any.>>Right.>>They don’t, they’re not
>>So, cable->>Federal mandate, yeah.>>Right, exactly.>>And then but so the Internet is definitely
not. But should it be? I don’t know, that’s my question to you all.>>I like Elizabeth Warren very much. She is one of two candidates in this Democratic
primary who is despised by the mega wealthy. And she is therefore someone who I’m intensely
interested in. With that said, I think there’s a horrible
move. First of all, I don’t think it has any real
logical construct that is governing it, in the sense that I don’t know exactly what she
wants from Facebook. I don’t know, if she wants Facebook to be
its own watchdog agency, if she wants Facebook to start a watchdog agency, or to fund one
that would be a third party agency. That’s probably the direction I would head. She’s using it as analogue with Cable news
which first of all is not for a variety of reasons but also, I don’t think that’s a great
example either. And Cable News as we’ve seen, Cable News allows
people to lie. They’ll take ads from people who lie which
is why Donald Trump is able to put fake news ads or groups that support Donald Trump are
able to put fake news I ads on Fox News. So I think she’s done something really muddled
here. And I think the reason why I’m bothered by
it irked by, is the week before, she was having a really interesting debate about Zuckerberg
and about the idea of breaking down monopolies. And now all of a sudden she’s gotten to this
muddled place where I don’t quite know what her thought process on this whole notion is,
and I don’t think it serves her really.>>So I’m curious about that though because
kind of the gist of your conversation with the rich baseball player was almost to whom
much is given much is required. So if one single baseball player, because
they make a lot of money has a responsibility to do what’s right.>>Sure.>>How come a billion dollar company that
arguably has the most influence that I’ve ever seen of any entity in my entire lifetime. More money that any one person could ever
think up in their dorm room and steal and then recreate and make big, why wouldn’t they
have even a similar responsibility to do what’s right? That one single baseball player does who just
wants to spend time with his baby’s bat?>>I don’t know, but I love that.>>It’s like irresponsible.>>And I do believe that Facebook has a massive
responsibility.>>This is not dropping it?>>Right, but all I’m saying is that I don’t
think Elizabeth Warren has a clear bead, right. In what I’ve seen and I’ve read a bunch of
different articles on this, and I’ve seen everything that she’s put out about it. I don’t think she has a clear bead on what
she wants that responsibility to be. And the reason why it matters, the reason
why I’m interested in it is because Mark Zuckerberg, we can essentially assume and I think we know,
right? Has some degree of liberal leaning.>>I have no idea about that. I think they’ve
>>At the same time, like at the same time we know that he is biased against Elizabeth
Warren because she would break up monopolist. We know that-
>>We heard the audio.>>Yeah, he recognizes her as a enemy to big
business or to mass corporatism throughout America. So but what happens when the next social network
literally has like the Fox News team behind them.>>He’ll buy them.>>Okay yeah. But, but-
>>Which is literally exactly what will happen.>>I just don’t know that we want to leave
this responsibility in Zuckerberg’s hands at all. I think I mean-
>>Well why would it be in the baseball? Her objective here, it’s very clear. The president is recently running ads lying
about Joe and Hunter Biden, very clear, everybody says wow, what’s the deal here? And Facebook says well, we know it’s a lie,
you know it’s a lie but our policy is to stand back and not correct lies. She is saying that’s stupid, stop doing that,
you’re hurting people.>>Right.>>So her objective here it seems very clear.>>Okay.>>And I think that where this plugs into
a larger context is Facebook overall role in shaping democracies around the world. Facebook in their business pitches likes to
argue that we’re bigger than a lot of the world’s religions. Like you said they don’t want the responsibility
that comes with that. Never mind that in Bangladesh and countries
in South Asia, Facebook and Facebook’s properties like WhatsApp and Instagram have been used
to peddle misinformation that has gotten people killed and murdered. Killed and murdered, but horrible things have
happened to them as a result of misinformation campaign spread on Mark Zuckerberg platforms. So I think, I do think that Warren maybe could
be a little bit clearer here. I don’t think that argument about what’s happening
in other countries is going to be very plausible or like good for a lot of Americans. But what is going to work is to say, hey,
Facebook clearly does not handle or want the responsibility to have right now. Maybe it should be someone else like the government. Which is kind of Elizabeth Warren’s realize. Like the financial industry, the tech industry,
they have too much power over our economy, and they are not able to properly reconcile
with that power. So when we have these cases where there’s
some big company that has a lot of our power in the society but they can’t control themselves,
the government steps in to some extent. And so that plugs into Warren’s larger political
ethos.>>But I think before we even get to that
point just it seeing how they’re influenced in their lack of oversight. How it, what happened with that through the
last election cycle, the last presidential election. And how they spend a long time with those
cute little ads like apologizing, trust us, we still love you but also try portal.>>Put a camera into your living room, no.>>Right.>>But-
>>We care about your privacy.>>Speak slowly and clearly into the microphone.>>But so they had been doing little small
things like changing up the news feed, putting those stamps on misinformation. So it seems like all she’s asking is use those
same resources when the few presidential candidates that are left lie. Just don’t let them lie. I got just seems before we even get to how
the government can step in that’s, it’s a really simple thing that the company could
do.>>I’m not disagreeing with you. If Mark Zuckerberg and I were talking, as
we do on Wednesday nights->>This must not be what we’re talking about.>>If he and I were chatting, I would say,
I don’t think that it’s going to work for you to be this open, for them to essentially
say, we’re just the platform, right? That has failed, we know that that has failed.>>Right.>>All I’m saying is that her encouraging
him to self-moderate or self-watchdog, I don’t think is gonna work either. Because when we have people at the top who
have biases, those biases are gonna trickle down. Anyone watch a succession like that? Or if anyone follows Fox News, that’s what
we see. So all I’m saying is, I do think Facebook
needs, watch dogging. I just think it’s going to have to be an independent
third party group that is funded From Facebook, from taxation, from all these different things. Also, I love the little fake ad that she did
because that’s parity, it wasn’t actually a lie.>>I loved the ad honestly.>>It was messy, it’s just messy.>>President as parity.>>I know but it makes it too easy for people
to go, this is kind of nonsense.>>You think it’s hurting herself.>>Yeah, all I’m worried about is her as someone
who is attacking big business, and I’m saying she just dove the whole spear of her message.>>I don’t believe a Facebook ad a year before
the election is out, is going to cost her a single vote.>>Okay.>>But I think these are all just like media
moments that we can kind of talk about this worse.>>All right.>>When somebody does something cool and I
think we tend to identify smart, innovative people with liberalism. At what point, what can they before they say
anything to us personally about, hey, this is who I vote for, this is what I believe. At what point does signing on with 50 million
conservative viewpoints. At what point do we start at thinking that
no, no, no, at the base of it they have our, because I see it’s not what it was.>>That’s a great point.>>It’s really long list with and so I did
it I call it the Lena Dunham. I have this idea for a long time, let me explain.>>I think I know where you are going with
this.>>So much that she know she means well, should
know there’s no black people and girls. Now, okay.>>Right.>>Okay, now, she said this. Okay, no, she it finally hit me, wait, maybe
I don’t know this person.>>Right.>>Maybe she’s not what I think. And so we keep apologizing. No, we think he’s this. We have decided then and put that tag but
I mean she is doing all of this.>>Right.>>And we keep chopping it up to, it was a
mistake? That was a mistake. That was a mistake-
>>Well, that’s my point. That’s why I don’t trust him to self-moderate.>>Yeah.>>I don’t trust any billionaire to be their
own watchdog.>>Yeah.>>Every billionaire in America, I do not
trust you to be your own watchdog. So that’s all I was saying, really.>>I just feel like we don’t have to trust
him to be his wish for him to stop this.>>That’s what she’s encouraging him to do,
right? It’s like-
>>At least on this just>>Self moderate.>>At least the blatant stuff, right?>>The point you have where people are-
>>We have this idea that this is not purposeful. And I don’t think we’ve been given the facts
to make that decision.>>Yeah, we accept->>Yeah, I’m not giving him the benefit of
the doubt that it’s not purposeful.>>Yeah.>>He wants more money.>>Yeah. Do you not think it’s possible that his beliefs
lean there.>>I think they surely do when it comes to
certain economic policy issues, absolutely. And they certainly do when it comes to deregulation. The last thing he wants is to be regulated. So yeah, if Mark Zukerbag was sitting in bed
and had his most honest moment of the day and looked up at the ceiling. I think he would certainly say like the Trump
presidency is better for his social network.>>My God, I am so black I could never imagine
looking at the ceiling and for any reason being you know what. The toll presidency is better.>>No, I’m not.>>What is that like?>>There are.>>What would sing me Zuckerberg.>>Direct former.>>I know, I know, I was thinking about, I
was thinking about him.>>The former owners of BET who apparently
have that same thought. Donald Trump was good for them.>>Yeah.>>So like it’s not.>>Yeah.>>Totally out of the realm of our imagination.>>Yeah, people with a lot of money like getting
more money.>>Yeah.>>We’ve accepted the sort of world where
the right-wingers that Zuckerberg loves to keep himself around have said that Zuckerberg
is a leftist. And so now he’s trying to overcompensate and
say no, I’m not a leftist. I like hearing from both sides. Yeah, that snide remark, I don’t know if you
got to it.>>This is what you don’t do when the other
side is blatantly racist. You’re like, yeah I’m gonna have to take this
sale. Yes sir, I’m a leftist.>>Right both sides.>>The alternative.>>Yeah.>>Is that stuff, and I can’t do it.>>Right.>>It shows where, I think shows where his
politics truly lie, and it’s with his pocketbook, and it’s also with the pocketbook that he
shares with white nationalists.>>Yeah.

  1. Disinformation MUST be determined by a neutral source.

    We've already seen sites that are supposed to fact check independently, but bend the information to support a political Ideology.

    Looking at you, Snopes.

  2. Facebook always suppresses liberal content, but trumps nonsense gets the “let’s be fair to everyone” bullshit.

  3. 5 massive projects happening in my district along with expanding of residential also i spoke to a family that happens to be entrepreneurs and they are very pleased with the tax cuts that their small business has brought in massive profit THANK YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP

  4. Ask Warren if she'll transfer her 10 million corporate cash she transferred from her Senate campaign to her 2020 campaign back or stop calling herself 100% grassroots funded

  5. BREAKING NEWS : Ukrainian energy companies are Hiring ! $50k/ month staring salary! No experience necessary, No requirement to even speak the language, Not necessary to even live in the Ukraine. Convictions for cocaine possession are NO problem. Only prerequisite : Must show proof of famous & powerful father in the US government. LOL ! Yup … Nothing to see here Uncle Joe !

  6. steve bramucci is a douche bag if he believes the manufactured narrative that the mega-wealthy "despise" warren.
    she will be a useful tool of the establishment.

  7. 'HARRY REID: Warren WON'T Fight For Medicare For All,' ~ the yt video by The Rational National (+ Secular Talk.)

  8. Brooke Thomas needs to STOP SAYING LIKE a million times. Shows a lack of being able to articulate her thoughts efficiently.

  9. Why is TYT always trying to bashing Warren down? Because Sanders is losing against her? When the going gets tough the tough gets going and the weak are going to an hospital with an heart attack.

  10. Well Elizabeth Warren is not all that she says she  is a corporate democrat to the bone and she'll believe in Medicare for all she was a big private Health Insurance does take a vantage of the American people .  And she is not helping the American people's lives !

  11. Brooke..like…using like …words like like like…cenck using tic tic tic tiiic like like.
    Yeah…i like….didnt like so much time spent like saying like like one like word. Like?

  12. Are you guys going to challenge Krystal Ball’s bizarre assertion that Warren is the establishment candidate while implicitly calling her an imposter? All the while praising and defending Tulsi Gabbard who is a darling of the alt right, gets her inspiration from a cult leader, and thinks anyone who attacks her on facts is just pushing conspiracy theories because they are out to get her.

  13. This may have been intended to be a fake advertisement.
    However, Zuckerberg probably is supporting Trump.
    He just won't admit it in public. Zuckerberg has clearly
    demonstrated that he is a rich man who does not want
    to be held accountable for his behavior. Since Trump
    is the same way, Zuckerberg is probably more sympathetic
    toward Trump than he is willing to admit!

  14. If I owned Facebook then I would allow the lying to take place with a followup by Politifact add debunking their lies. Maybe a Pop-Up video type system to call out the lies in tandem with the lying video.

  15. The most terrible thing about materialism, even more terrible than its proneness to violence, is its boredom, from which sex alcohol, drugs, all devices for putting out the accusing light of reason and suppressing the unrealizable aspirations of love, offer a prospect of deliverance.

  16. They should have a watchdog agency to combat fake news like TYT CNN FOX MSNBC what hypocrites. Media has too much power and brainwash an army of voters.

  17. I see the Hunter Biden interview has gotten a free pass again from TYT news and the rest of the left media. Quite frankly I think this is pathetic, if I was interviewing this corrupt family, I would be asking these questions to Hunter Biden ''what difference does it make if your father is running for President compared to him being VP, when it comes to your business dealings'' or ''please explain how you got onto the board of a Ukraine natural gas company with no experience in energy'' or ''please explain how you got the Chinese to put 1.5 billion dollars into your private equity fund, when you don't have any investment management experience'' then ''please explain why the timing of these two dealings were at the same time as your Father was in the Ukraine and China'' or ''if none of this has been highlighted in the news would you have still made the same decision to step down from the Board of this Firm''

  18. I love TYT and listen watch often HOWEVER.. I’m pretty sure she said the word “LIKE” 50,000 times! More vocabulary please?

  19. When are Chieftess Warren, and the rest of the Liberal “progressive” piously ignorant infantile ideologues, going to stop flying in chartered planes and jets all over the country, and polluting our earth’s precious (imminently endangered environment) month after month after month, which is so detrimental to our children’s future? Surely, they of all people should be setting an example, instead of crying about pollution for votes.

  20. Warren won't fight for Medicare for All. Secular Talk: '“A review of Warren’s campaign donations to her presidential and Senate campaigns reveal that she’s received donations from more than 30 billionaires”'

  21. Quad Cities TV is airing the Trump ad which is (seriously) chock full of lies. And the ignorant Republican voter will eat these ads up.

  22. Facebook is constantly taking off my pages, articles and such that "are false"….censoring my pages if I swear too much or whatever….So why wouldn't they do it for political ads? Or maybe it's because they're Pagan pages….

  23. The fact remains facebook hired a Republican woman who is in charge of political ads and the first thing she did was lift the policy band facebook had on false political ads after 2016 and her reasoning was false political ads are ok, i put up a meme 2 weeks ago with a worker high up on a poll next to a 5g network antenna saying you need a radiation suite to install a 5g network antenna and facebook took it down claiming this content was false, so if facebook can take down false claims that are not political and porn what is there reason for leaving up false political ads, there is a much sinister reason for them doing that Mark Zuckerberg is probably a secret Trump supporter and a republican, he give everyone account info in 2016 to cambridge analytica a rightwing misinformation company now this, SMH this idiot guest on TYT haven't a clue of what he is talking about he is a naive air head.

  24. Multi-millionaire and compulsive liar Chieftess Warren is not in favour of a Universal Basic Income because she sees individuals as units of exploitation, and as a means to fulfilling her totalitarian Utopian social plans. She can’t accept the idea of individuals having any guaranteed financial independence as it gives her less control over individuals lives, and ability to manipulate society to make it fit her Utopian delusional ideas.

  25. Multimillionaire and proven liar Chieftess Warren is a self-serving individual who usurped the identity of Native Americans to advance her own career, out of pure self-interest. She has never even apologized for why she did this, but only for doing it. She has now been caught in another lie about being fired from her job in 2007 because she was pregnant, due to her wish to exploit victim-hood.

  26. why not just have people stop using facebook? i don't get this whole attack on facebook. i don't use it and could care less what they do to anyone stupid enough to use it

  27. Seriously? Most ads are bullshit market hype based around emotion anyways. Bullshit political ads have been going on ever since advertisement was a thing, but this is where you draw the line? Selective outrage much?

  28. Cenk, Ana, John… where are you??? I don't want to hear millennials just bicker back and forth. No substance with this panel.

  29. The establishment and wealthy hate Bernie even more so shouldn't the guy in the middle like Bernie more than Warren by his own logic?

  30. Liz was caught lying again. Her donor that gave her the federal maximum set up a question with CNN in the lgbtq townhall.

  31. Mark Zuckerberg is a turncoat ,instead of staying out of politics, and dark money ,and monopolies he’s caught talking to the far right . This is not what Social network should be as facebook, twitter , face time etc. Mark Zuckerberg has so much power that he is drowning in his life with it . Facebook is only in it infancy . Facebook will be replaced with something new . I have no time for social media as it stands right now .

  32. It is stupid to attack this kind of free speech….. the first they come after are the progressives… this is so stupid…..

  33. How come the people who called on Warren to drop out and throw her support behind Bernie when he was ahead of her in the polls aren't asking Bernie to do the same now that he's trailing?


  35. Amazing TYT ignores Zuckerberg on audio telling his staff to push Trump impeachment over all other stories, but TYT report this lame deflection story. As if pushing for Trump's impeachment 24/7 isn't enough how you dare run any negative adds against Pocahontas on Facebook Zuckerberg.

  36. And yet ANOTHER Warren post 6 in one week – gee no biases showing up on TYT at all…. Bernie has had union podcasts, introduced 4 new pieces of legislation and 2 new policy plans and he gets ONE mention in 2 weeks.

  37. Warren avoids open confrontation a FACT THAT HAS BEEN PLAYED OUT OVER AND OVER……
    Zuckerberg attack her and she folds…..she is just a shy Academic female!!!! GO BERNIE the TRUE FIGHTER FOR THE PEOPLE!!!

  38. Exactly what we don’t need is a politician dictating that companies restrict freedom of speech. They got away with creating the “fake news” meme that allowed fabeplant to shut down news the establishment doesn’t want you to hear, and this YouTube platform to start demonetizing news from certain channels and wholly deleting some channels. We get notifications references to Wikipedia articles (which has no credibility) because they want to cry Russia Russia Russia…
    This is about controlling information, not pointing out lies. If you want to point out a lie, Liz, do so yourself. Do not force your neoliberal nanny state on us.
    Bernie 2020

  39. Facebook is essentially saying what conservatives have been saying for ages; you have the right to lie, it's okay to lie in campaign ads and it isn't their responsibility to fact check what ads they run (b/c they want to make that money).

  40. Warren is destroying Bernie, gosh…30% vs 11%…the burn has totally been extinguished..Suspend your campaign and pass the torch, Mr Sanders!

  41. Warren is so despised by the mega donors that she received donations from at least 30 billionaires. Billionaires love Warren.

  42. I'm sure facebook wouldn't censor an ad that shows zuckerberg being a asshole or a sellout, even if a political person did it, right?

  43. The whole thing does seem a little petty, only because he tired to come at her not to long ago. But I dont mind petty, like they said, she ain't losing a vote

  44. NICE!! Good for Warren, not afraid to hit back. Blue shirt guy should SHUT UP!!. muddled this and i dont know this, MORON. She's making a point, asking for action from people to like if they agree. That's it. So STFU. what an idiot. is he republican? he's dumb enough. Anyway good for Warren, I'm tired of the high road which for dems means tail between the legs. Good for her for doing an ethical hit back.

  45. So you believe Drumph is a Orange Bad Man but want the GOVT to oversee the 'truth'?! Brainlit logic? Everyone would be hurt by this, dont you see?!?!?!?!

  46. Libertarians always say the market self corrects. She asks for Facebook to self correct in one small instance, to enforce what they were saying was their TOS but they just altered in the case of politicians lying. They refuse. She can point to this to say when they get to big for competition to hurt and they refuse to self correct they must be regulated from outside by legislation acting to enforce unbiased information and blocking false information from any source as the FEC enforces for broadcast media.

  47. How about making a law that forbids political ads mention other parties or candidates?
    This would likely force positive messages about oneself instead of attack ads that generally aim very * very* low.
    Stop ads "Warren eats babies" and force ads "Biden will do this thing for you".
    This wouldn't stop mentions during debates, but ads are one-sided messages that often go unchallenged and are all too often packed with lies and appeal to emotion.
    If something bad needs to be told publicly about a candidate, let it be handled in news (with proper sourcing) or debates (with proper response rights).

  48. I like tyt, but these three are likely the most clueless and ignorant commentators on the network. Tyt should drop them immediately.

  49. Umm how about teaching people not to get their information from only FB, or do your own research on it. It’s not hard.

  50. I think Facebook is taking a position by taking money and allowing Trump an unfair advantage. Facebook is really bad when it comes to allowing clear defamation. They have a really messed up moral compass. Where does it end? If the KKK decided to advertise spreading hate would they stand back and allow that too? They censor all sorts of people they want to censor and selectively delete content and then allow crap like this. It doesn't make sense.

  51. I’m normally quite hard on Brooke on DR videos but she kicked that idiot in the middle around that studio, well done, she was solid in this video!

  52. Warren's point fairly clear. Trump and his backers lie all the time, and do so in adds Facebook. If Facebook doesn't take down adds with lies; it gives an advantage to the liers. That's backing trump.
