The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.
This is why it’s important to have a social media marketplace that isn’t dominated by a single censor:
Last Friday, Elizabeth announced a big proposal to break up the three biggest tech companies. And then, like we do with most things we want to get the word out about, we put up a video ad about her plan on Facebook.
But today, we got a notification from Facebook: They were pulling down our video ads.

Facebook and Google control 70% of online traffic, so in order to get Elizabeth’s message out online, we have to use their platforms — and pay them for the privilege.
Facebook is letting us share our video again (thanks, by the way). But if you want proof of Elizabeth’s point that Facebook has too much power, look no further than their ability to shut down a debate over… whether Facebook has too much power.
This is why it’s important to have a social media marketplace that isn’t dominated by a single censor — because at the end of the day, Facebook makes the call on whether an ad, whether it’s from a presidential campaign or a mom-and-pop business, gets to be shown or shut down.
P.S. — You might think this is just one instance of Facebook pulling down an ad that could be seen as critical. It’s not — and you shouldn’t have to call Facebook’s publicists in order to have a “robust debate.”Make a donation to fight back today.
