‘The Five’ debates Twitter’s ban on political ads


DOING THE SAME. THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN CALLING OUT TWITTER SAYING, TWITTER BANDS POLITICAL ADS AND YET ANOTHER ATTEMPT BY THE LEFT IS TO SILENCE TRUMP AND CONSERVATIVES. I WOULDN’T BE SURPRISED TWITTER LIFTED THE BAN AFTER 2020. OKAY. LET’S TAKE AROUND THE TABLE. WE WERE TALKING ABOUT HALLOWEEN CANDY DURING THE BREAK AND, I GOT OFF TRACK.>>YOU ARE TRYING TO BRING UP SOME KIND OF CONCERN FOR THE STORY. THAT’S THE STANDPOINT OF, DO YOU THINK IT’S GOOD FOR PUBLIC DEBATE, OR TO HAVE A DEBATE ABOUT FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION? BECAUSE BASICALLY YOU HAVE TWO OF THE BIGGEST TECH COMPANIES TAKING VERY DIFFERENT OPINIONS ON THIS.>>I THINK IT’S EXCELLENT. I THINK IT’S INTERESTING THAT JACK DORSEY HAS TAKEN SUCH AN I AM THE ANTI-FACEBOOK STANCE AND I AM THE ANTIDOTE, WE DO IT SO MUCH BETTER HERE AND THERE ARE LOTS OF FUNDAMENTAL FLAWS WITH HIS REASONING. FOR EXAMPLE THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE NOW BANNED ISSUE ADS ALSO AND THAT WILL LIKELY –>>HOW DO YOU DECIDE TO.>>WATCH YOUR MOUTH. THAT’S 5:00.>>THAT MUST HAVE HURT.>>WHAT’S A STICKY WICKET?>>OH, IT’S AN ADVOCACY ADDED. SO TO ME, LET’S START AT .0, WHICH IS I THINK THAT JACK DORSEY MUST WATCH “THE FIVE” ON MARK ZUCKERBERG MUST NOT BECAUSE I DON’T SEE WHY YOU DON’T JUST DO AWAY WITH POLITICAL ADS. BECAUSE IT IS NEGLIGIBLE IN TERMS OF THEIR BOTTOM LINE. AND, THE REALITY IS THAT ZUCKERBERG DOESN’T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND FROM MY PERSPECTIVE THAT HE IS UNDERMINING HIS BRAND BY ALLOWING POLITICAL LIES TO BE PUT ON HIS PLATFORM. THAT TO ME LESSENS THE TRUST THAT THE CONSUMER HAS. WE HAVE A VERY STRONG RELATIONSHIP WITH FACEBOOK AS IT GETS PERSONAL, FRIENDS AND FAMILY. AND NOW YOU SAY THERE ARE POLITICAL LIES.>>BUT WHO GETS TO DECIDE WHAT’S A LIE AND WHAT’S NOT?>>IT’S ACTUALLY ANOTHER WAY TO GET INFORMATION AND THEY WOULD LIKE THAT. THEY ARE TRYING TO — PUT TRUMP SLIDES THERE PLEASE.>>I DIDN’T EVEN REALIZE THERE WERE ADS ON TWITTER. I DON’T SEE THEM, ALL I SEE IS PEOPLE SCREAMING AT EACH OTHER. TWITTER’S UPDATES ARE DOWN 95%. IF YOU MADE $100 LAST YEAR YOU MADE FIVE THIS YEAR. I ACTUALLY WORKED IT OUT. NO ONE WANTS TO GET NEAR THIS TANGLED PILE OF SCREAMERS BECAUSE TWITTER AS WE KNOW HAS BEEN AN AMPLIFIED EDGE OF THIS COURSE. IF THEY ARE DUE ALMOST ALL THE TWEETING AND THEY ARE DESCRIBED AS POLITICALLY ACTIVE AND LEFT LEANING. WHAT YOU ARE BASICALLY GETTING IS A CAMPUS SIT IN EVERY TIME YOU WATCH TWITTER.>>IT ISN’T — WHEN YOU GO ON FACEBOOK IT’S UP FUN PLAT ROOM, COME PLATFORM. IS HE YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR FRIENDS, YOU WONDER WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND THINKING ABOUT WHAT YOU COULD HAVE BEEN. I HATE THIS PERSON, I HATE THAT PERSON, THIS PERSON HATES ME. THEN YOU GO SCREW IT. I THINK THIS IS A CONSEQUENCE OF POLITICS IN GENERAL. PEOPLE ARE JUST LIKE –>>EXCEPT FOR THE FIVE.>>AND TWITTER ANNOUNCED THIS RIGHT AFTER FACEBOOK CAME OUT WITH ITS EARNINGS. AND I BELIEVE AOC DOES.>>BUT>>Juan: DIDN’T THINK AMERICANS WERE SMART ENOUGH TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A LIE AND A TRUTH. BUT I THINK WE ARE. LOOK AT THE DOG. HE RUNS AN AD WITH THE DOG AND YOU SAY YOU NEED A FACT-CHECKER TO TELL THE AMERICANS THAT THAT IS A LIE? COME ON.>>Juan: I’M GOING TO DEFEND EMILY’S MOM TO THE DEATH.>>WE DON’T NEED YOU GUYS IN THE MEDIA, YOU LIBERAL FACT-CHECKERS TO TELL US WHAT’S TO KNOW ABOUT WHAT TO SEE ON TV.>>HE CAN SAY WHATEVER HE WANTS. BUT HERE’S THE POINT. DEMOCRATS ARE GETTING CRUSHED ON RAISING MONEY AND THEY KNOW THEY WILL GET OUTSPENT BY REPUBLICANS AND THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN. SO THEY CALLED JACK AND THEY SAY JACK, I’M BEGGING YOU. JACK, ABSOLUTELY. AND JACK SAYS OKAY WE WILL DO IT. EVERYBODY KNOWS, POLITICAL SPEECH IS THE SAME THING AS FREE SPEECH AND WE DON’T WANT TWITTER POLICING FREE SPEECH. IT’S BEFORE ALSO BY DOING THIS THEY MIGHT GET SOME OF THE HEAT OFF OF HIM. THE DEMOCRATS SAY, WE HAVE TO BE NICE TO JACK.>>AMERICAN SCHOOLS ARE IN CRISIS. IT COULD SCREEN TIME BE TO BLAME? DETAILS NEXT.

  1. Once again Juan Williams is demonstrating what a moron he is and partisan. They want to control the narrative about Trump with their propaganda and they can’t allow trump to place ads that demonstrate how full of it they are. It is censorship and if they allow it after Trump becomes president again they’ve only proven that they are brainwashers.

  2. Exactly what Twitter is doing is silencing trump in Twitter.. imagine if you will all social media bans political ads and all we are left with is the main stream media.. all media except fox is anti trump. Leaving one outlet, one platform for republicans to speak from. Personally I could care less because I don’t use social media anyway.. I think is stupid to put yourself out there like that

  3. Thank God! I remember 10 years ago no one trusted politicians and now people want them in their homes! This is rediculous

  4. "Who should get to decide what's a lie and what's not", she's saying this and its a good point but what she really means is "the democrats shouldn't get to call out our lies and I am personally offended".

  5. Will personal opinions of political activists be banded! That’s the problem! All these actors and such spreading hate.

  6. So, Twitter is doing their part to influence the next election…. to save incumbents… You don't say…. and if you did, it'd be censored. Because this is America and we believe in free sp….

  7. I agree that it's policing. They want the media Washington Compost, MSLSD, New York Slime, to have all the coverage because it's in their control.

  8. The most active users on Facebook and Twitter r bots and disinformation/propaganda/fake conspiracy theory influencers which most all of it comes from the Republican Party or Republican special interest groups and foreign governments most of which r pushing messages which benefit republicans not Dems. Why? Bc for both the Republican wealthy and corporations as well as corrupt foreign governments like Russia, Saudi Arabia, China, etc all benefit more from Republican domestic and foreign policies than they do from Dem domestic/foreign policies. The fact checkers r from the right, center, and the left but none of that matters when fact checking. Facts r either right or wrong. The Republican “alternative facts” aren’t facts, they r just lies. It’s true that Dems haven’t continued campaigning since 2016 election. Most Dems also aren’t taking Super PAC or high dollar corporate donations. Republicans should also be rejecting Super PAC and high $ corporate $. They should be joining Dems, showing their voters they won’t sell out to big $, and showing they will work for the ppl vs the wealthy, corporations, and foreign governments. Republicans have also been accepting foreign donations which have been laundered thru straw men and republican special interest groups. Trump made that even easier when he changed the law so that non-profits/special interest groups no longer have to declare where their or from whom their donations r coming from. Any M or L class American who votes republican should expect politicians who won’t be working for them bc their big $/dark $ donors r much more important to them. HR 1, which passed the House, would expand voting rights, limit partisan gerrymandering, strengthen ethics rules, and limit the influence of private donor money in politics. It’s 1 of the 250 or so bills which have passed the House in 2018-2019, r sitting in Moscow Mitch’s (the grim reaper’s) graveyard, won’t be brought to the senate floor for a vote nor will Trump or the Senate create/pass their own bills dealing w/the issues bc to improve the situation they would have to create and pass bills which benefit the M&L classes which their wealthy donors won’t allow. Twitter isn’t silencing conservatives when they r banning all political ads regardless of what party the ad comes from and regardless of which party the ad helps or hurts. Facebook is allowing false political ads bc if they required the ads to be factual, that would significantly reduce republican ads, be a significant revenue loss for Facebook, and bc Facebook, all wealthy Americans and large corporations, benefit the most from Republican control of government. It’s a big tell when a political party or special interest group advocates for allowing false ads and cries foul when their false ads, altered pictures/video, etc r removed. It’s hard to convince enough M&L class voters to vote for the party which works the most to benefit the wealthy and corporations and disadvantages the M&L class voters the most w/out lying, disinformation, propaganda, and fake conspiracy theories. The Republican Party believes the federal government should be under the control of the wealthy and corporations and should work to benefit only the wealthy and corporations as they have done while controlling government (house, senate, WH, and Supreme Court) most of the time since 1980-Present and at least 1880-1932. Dems on the other hand, believe the federal government can work for all the ppl and, while I’d like to see them do more for the M&L classes, throughout the last 100-150yrs, Dems have done more than Republicans to help the M&L classes while in office or when they’ve had majority control. Approximately 40% of Americans r not capable of differentiating between what is a lie, disinformation, propaganda, and fake conspiracy theories. We have cut so much funding from public schools that Americans no longer rank in the top 10 best educated countries compared to all other countries and r spending so much more on charter schools, especially those which r run by Republican evangelicals, that don’t teach much science especially not climate change, those who use only books approved by Republican groups, and those whose sole purpose is to brainwash children to grow up to believe in republican values, policies, etc to ensure wealthy republicans and corporations have enough M&L class voters to vote in the best interest of the wealthy and corporations. Regardless of what rules a social media platform decides is acceptable for their platform, it has nothing to do with free speech. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites own their platform which is their product and they have the right to determine what is acceptable for them. Just like I can’t force Nike to put my name or message on their products, the public can’t force owners of platforms, businesses, other consumer goods, etc to abide by my rules, free speech protection, etc. The fact that so many on the right confuse free speech protection under the constitution in own’s home, one’s own website that they publish, public property/spaces with rules that a private business adopts, or decisions a private business believes is necessary for them, their companies, their product, etc is concerning.

  9. This pretty much signals the end for Twitter. This is a move towards socialism and is what China does. Anyway, this will be the slow end of Twitter, once you start limiting free speech in any social media platform, people will start rebelling and leaving. Nobody likes being told what they should or should not look at. Maybe that's what the Left ultimately want, to shut Twitter down. Someone will start another similar platform without the paternalistic socialism. And everyone will migrate to it.

  10. Please read your own "title" fox news.
    All political ads. left or right it doesn't matter. They ban "all political ads"

  11. Facebook should do the same thing. They both ban the flames of misinformation and ignorance. People who watch TV news are much fewer, just no less misinformed.

  12. The ads are paid propaganda, the medium they choose to post the ad to has the right to refuse displaying anything they are not willing to accept the payment for. Private users can still post about their thoughts and feelings regarding political issues. This is Capitalism at work, there is nothing wrong with that.

  13. they all get what they deserve…. the candidates have been LYING to us forever and this is the result…. and they want Facebook / Twitter to determine what is TRUTH and what is not ?? impossible….

  14. I'm glad Mark zuckerberg made that decision. Go Mark. Let the people decide what is true. Let people know what people lie!

  15. Hey The Five or Fox why the heck you keep that ugly Juan William in your show? His thinking is just as ugly as his look, do you realize what that affect in your The Five show? Viewers will switch channel once his face shows up, got it?

  16. Twitter has the right and freedom to do what they want with their platform. I support that freedom. Just make sure it’s equal Twitter. 👍😉😏

  17. Twitter is for twits!! So glad I'm not a member of any social media platforms. They are destroying our society. I feel sorry for this younger (and some older) generation and just what they are missing because of this anti social and introvert society we have become.

  18. MSM say's nothing positive about Trump, therefore if ads are banned CNN, MSNBC and such should not be permitted to post durin election time. I mean they are also a promoter against the 1A. They cover and spin all the hate stuff. Then ther's Juan there, yes the President can say what he wants, just as any of us.

  19. Dems are losing the social war so they do what they do best and try and silence!!! It really is not complicated, this is how the Dems play and control the game in their favor!!!!

  20. Of course Trump wants fake political adds. His bigot base is dumb enough to believe any lie put in front of their face. These Drumph bigots believe in all of the pig slop that Fox propaganda puts in their zombie faces every day.

  21. Indeed, the little twitter boy is pissed at Trump's surge in donations. He can spin it any way he wants, we all know what a little whinny butthole he is.

  22. I say that Americas BAN ALL OF TWITTER…which is the largest TIME-WASTER ever sold to the public. Jack Dorsey can szuck it!

  23. He feels the heat after the 2016 Presidential vote, and are now afraid that it will back-fire on him, and he can not take the fight with the DEMs, they have to much on him, so he have to use this scheme for back him selves out of the swamp.

  24. They have every right to ban the ads. It's the smart thing to do because it will keep them from being a Russian tool. They are make money on all the other ads anyway. Who needs the political head ache.

  25. No surprise here when you consider the first word in "Twitter" is "Twit"! Retrospectively, while pondering the word, "Twit", Juan comes to mind!

  26. I wanted so stupid. But then again he is supposed to be giving the left viewpoint. He argues that the right has been complaining about censorship and then they complain that they're being kicked off a Twitter. Yeah that's called censorship idiot. I think it's amusing that they always want to talk about Trump's like you know a burger stack thousand feet high I'm the greatest president. They never want to talk about the Real Lies like when they made the claim that Trump said all Mexicans are rapists something he never said they don't want to ban the fact that CNN keeps promoting and DNC keeps promoting that Trump said white supremacist are good people something he never said. So they always want to blow up hyperbole into a lie but they don't want to talk about real lie

  27. personally, i loathe political ads mainly because it's a main source of leftist mud slinging and smearing. I would not mind if ALL political ads, print and on air, were banned, but it is obvious that it is only an issue now because republicans can buy ten times more ads.
    I would like to see election reform, meaning a whole different approach. It reminds me of high school, the election of student council campaign rules. Candidates were not allowed to bash the opponent, they were only allowed to speak of what they could offer and do if elected.
    If they broke the rules, they were disqualified from running. Voters do not care what someone else's opinion of the candidates are, we want to know what the candidate promises to do or not do and what the candidate has to offer. Obiously I was in high school when kids were educated, not like it is now.

  28. So the Democrats are raising absolutely no money they can't afford ads and the Republicans coffers are overflowing so Twitter bans all political ads so much for free speech on Twitter

  29. Shut up con-servatives because Twitter is a private corporation and they can do anything they want. Their only obligation is to their shareholders not your freedom of speech. If you don’t like it use another social media platform. I didn’t see con-servatives stand up with Collin kapernick when he was demonstrating his freedom of speech.

  30. The problem with 'fact check' policies is the facts are whatever democrats want it to be. If dems say the sky is red, its true. If repubs say the sky is blue, its false.. So a policy of just banning everything is probably better for republicans.

  31. All Trump needs to do is release his "Message" to his Trump Army and we'll spread spread his "Message" for him like a wild fire…..

  32. Made it to 1:32 before the dry heaves hit me when J.W. opened his mouth and the stench wafted through the computer screen to my nose. Thanks again Fox News for ruining a perfectly good video! Thumbs down again!

  33. Republicans support the fact that fake political news should be allowed on Facebook, should tell you enough. Im🍑Trµmp2020

  34. The Tech Companies better watch out who they support – Liberal Socialists will – Take over their Companies. Juan seems to forget that the Lies come from CNN and MSNBC – 24/7 Anti American Propaganda – Seems Dangerous to me.

  35. Dorsey's company has suspended me for comments I made in 2018 that they deemed, "hate speech" which is protected by the 1st Amendment as long as you don't incite violence. Reviewing Twitter's rules I can't find how what I wrote is "hate speech." I've appealed and got rejected. Appealed again and wrote an e-mail. No response. So I wrote a letter with my Tweet and the social media platform's guidelines to Jack Dorsey, President Trump, AG Barr, Senators Cruz, Graham and Scott along with my Congressman Joe Wilson and a Congressman Jeff Duncan who follows me. I plan to follow-up with e-mails and check into a possible legal suit or class action suit.

  36. They both have a block button. Use it if you don't want to see something. It's not supporting free speech by blocking speech

  37. Guys, Twitter might be surprised. Media outlets cannot discriminate or shut out campaign ads from particular groups.
    If Twitter accepts a single Ad from Democrats, they will be forced to share ads from Republicans.
    The only way out is if ALL candidates from ALL political persuasions are BLOCKED.
    And I somehow doubt that's what Twitter has in mind. .

  38. Twitter doesn't respect the 1st amendment & people's free speeches,they only lean to very far left communism & marxism & globalism.

  39. Yea this "private company" thing is just over when city to federal departments and public officials at all levels now have twitter accounts.
