Facebook, Twitter ‘Reducing’ the Distribution of New York Post Story on Hunter Biden Emails

Facebook, Twitter ‘Reducing’ the Distribution of New York Post Story on Hunter Biden Emails

Senate Homeland Security Committee opened its own investigation into the emails.

Facebook communications guy Andy Stone said Facebook is purposely “reducing” the distribution of the New York Post‘s story on Hunter Biden’s emails.

Twitter is doing the same thing.

By the way, Facebook chose the guy who used to work for the DCCC, former California Democrat Sen. Barbara Boxer, House Majority PAC (which helps to fight for a Democratic majority), and Democratic Rep. Jerry McNerney.

Notice a pattern?

Now, a private company has every right to determine what appears on its website. We also have a right to call out its hypocrisy.

How often have they done this?

So we have one example. Facebook claims it does this with all “questionable” stories that might have misinformation. Therefore, Facebook sends it to third-party fact-checkers so “people can read additional context.”

Is that code for another spin?

Twitter is not allowing people to send or DM the NY Post article.

President Donald Trump’s campaign blasted Facebook’s decision:

It seems odd that the only two known pieces that received this treatment are related to negative stories on Biden.

Facebook has its investigation while the Senate Homeland Security Committee opened an investigation into the emails:

“We regularly speak with individuals who email the committee’s whistleblower account to determine whether we can validate their claims,” Johnson told Fox News. “Although we consider those communications to be confidential, because the individual in this instance spoke with the media about his contact with the committee, we can confirm receipt of his email complaint, have been in contact with the whistleblower, and are in the process of validating the information he provided.”

So the FBI has had the computer for almost a year, and now we are hearing about it.
Something is rotten “in Denmark”.

    99% of FBI agents give the rest a bad name.

      Wray should be rotting in prison.
      So should his new accessory, Barr.

        Nobody is going to prison as long as Barr is AG….Wray, Barr…Trump sure can pick ’em

          “Trump sure can pick ’em”

          The Senate has a role to play and they tell Trump who he can hire. You’ll notice that the Senate has gone on recess since Trump’s inauguration.

          …the Senate has NOT gone on recess…

          How can Trump or anyone else know who is secretly part of the swamp? Think about how long they have had to stack the deck.

          I hope we see much more progress on getting rid of swamp critters during Trump’s second term, I have no doubt that there will still be many left.

          You are right that Trump may have a hard time knowing who is part of the Swamp. However, he could have picked an AG who was well-qualified and long time friend and avoided all of the serious problems that he has had – Chris Christie. CC wanted the job and was initially head of Trump’s transition team. I believe that because CC, when Federal prosecutor, put Kushner’s father in prison, Trump was prevailed upon to dump CC and Trump has had nothing but problems since – with Sessions, Rosenstein, Mueller, Wray and Barr. JFK made it clear how important having someone 100% reliable for the AG position was, by picking his brother. Obama picked Holder. If Trump loses, it will be because he did not pay attention to these historical lessons.

    And not from the FBI. From Giuliani, via NYP.

    the n.y. post story said the apple repair guy reached out to the fbi first. they either didn’t want to touch it or they reviewed it and declined to investigate.
    then he, somehow, got in touch with Rudy Giuliani. (he declined to to say how he reached rudy) it was then rudy that brought to story to the post.

    there may well be other versions. the repair guy isn’t consistent.

The tech giants can slow the story down, but they can’t stop it. It’s going to get out and make them all look idiots.

    Yes, for 16 trimesters, they have steered the search results, the conversation, the truth to speak to their facts. While they are still viable, there has been progress.

    The tech giants are interfering in our elections vastly more than the dastardly Russians. However, the publicity surrounding this instance might result in more publicity than if they had done nothing.

Twitter will not show the NYPost link.

We are in full blown “Streisand effect”

I’m at odds with this.

On one hand- I don’t go to social media for news. I go to my trusted news sites for that.

On the other hand I don’t like them choosing what speech is ok and what speech is not ok. It has become a microphone for leftist free speech, but all conservative free speech is subject to censorship.

I’m thinking we need to add some form of Universal Service Obligation to the Section 230 companies, in order for them to be Section 230 compliant.

The thing is, they have become the central means of distributing information, which puts them in very much the same position that the Post was back when they were written into the Constitution.

I’m thinking there was a good reason for that.

Some FBI salesman just sold some non-existent explosives to some fools in Michigan; Wray’s White supremacist story just got a boost in the news.

Meanwhile, General Flynn, backed by the DoJ, is still fighting our courts…

Justice? Not in the USA.

    As I recall, wasn’t the ring leader fool also BLM/Antifa too? And they ran with it as though they were some sort of right winger outfit.

Twitter Now Joins in Censorship of Hunter Biden Corruption Story
—Ace

Update: Twitter’s Public Policy Chief Leaves to Join Biden’s Transition Team

Dateline: Sept. 18, 2020
A former Democratic aide who served as Twitter�s director of public policy has left the social media company’s Washington, DC, office to join Joe Biden�s transition team, according to a report.

The Democratic presidential nominee�s team declined to comment to Politico, which cited a source familiar with Carlos Monje�s move, what his new role is.

Monje — who did not respond to Politico’s requests for comment — serves as co-chair of Biden�s infrastructure policy committee and helped host a fundraiser for the former veep this week, according to an invitation obtained by the news outlet.

He previously served as the director of agency review on the team that prepared for a possible Hillary Clinton administration.

Hey maybe Jim Jordan can stage another Failure Theater performance where he gives a Stern Talking To the tech monopolists — showing how Tough he is for conservatives watching on TV — while sucking the Tech Monopolists’ dicks off-camera and assuring their lobbyists that the GOP will be eager to help them censor conservatives.

And of course, Mitch McConnell won’t even permit a hearing in the Senate.

This laptop has been sitting in the Delaware US Attorney’s office for over a year; that’s before Trump’s impeachment began.

When was AG Barr notified?

FB “fact checkers” are named Larry, Curly, and Moe. In a pinch, they call on Shemp.

So the FBI had Hunter Biden’s laptop during the impeachment, the one that contained exculpatory evidence (for Trump) and they sat on it!!!! Just stew on that thought for a while.

Fire everyone at the DOJ and FBI. EVERYONE. Tear down the building. Salt the earth. In its place, set a statue with Comey, McCabe, Strozk, and the other plotters in chains, being lead to jail by Lady Justice.

what’s left out of all of this is; why did hunter take his computers to a guy in deleware?
best i can find is that he and his ex-wife had owned a home in the D.C. area. they listed it for sale in june 2017. no mention of when it sold or when he may have moved out.
the next i could find was that hunter bought a home in hollywood hills in june 2019.
alledgedly he dropped the computer(s) of for repair in april 2019.

i gotta wonder; why was hunter in a deleware store, when he wasn’t even living there?

If these emails were connected to President Trump The so called media would be screaming for his resignation or for the President to be Impeached and Facebook would not worry if the information was true or not As of today I have deleted my Facebook Account This company has its own agenda bI will not be part of it
