You’d expect a politician to know what they’re talking about when it comes to critiquing various political entities. For instance, President Trump knows exactly what he’s talking about when it comes to fake news and the anti-Right bias of tech giants like Facebook. However, when a Dem, like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), attempts to show off their knowledge about Facebook’s motives they tend to completely miss the mark.
Warren’s latest tweet shows how little she understands Facebook and its guiding principles.
Facebook had a policy that didn't permit misinformation in any ads. Facebook built relationships with independent fact-checkers, so they weren't the sole deciders of what was or wasn't a lie. But Facebook undermined those relationships and excluded political ads from that policy.

Facebook actively engages in censoring Right-wing political content based on its policy to “prevent the spread of misinformation.” In practice, the information Facebook does allow is consistently in favor of the Left. Warren doesn’t seem to get that Facebook’s “battle against misinformation” is working in HER favor.
Warren is a prime example of someone who bites the hand that feeds them.
