Big tech tries to censor New York Post and locks out WH press secretary over Hunter Biden story
It’s no longer a conspiracy theory – it’s is out in the open now…The alliance between big tech and liberals was demonstrated in full force on Wednesday as both Twitter and Facebook blocked a story by a legitimate news agency, the New York Post, shutting the story down before fact-checking and without evidence.
Going even further, Twitter also locked the account of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday after she shared the Post’s cover story.
Policy communications manager at Facebook, Andy Stone, tweeted that the social media giant would reduce the influence of the Post’s reporting (read: shut it down or limit its ability to be shared) while also appropriating its third-party fact-checkers on it, the Western Journal reported.
The report they didn’t want you to see…
In an exclusive report titled: “Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad” the New York Post reported on information obtained through emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop and provided images of the emails as proof.
“Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by The Post, the New York Post report said.
The emails were obtained from a computer that Hunter Biden dropped off at a repair shop in his home state of Delaware in April 2019, according to the owner of the store. The owner said the customer who brought in the water-damaged MacBook Pro never came to retrieve it or pay for the service, despite repeated attempts to contact the client.
Although the store owner could not positively identify Hunter Biden as the owner, the laptop had a sticker from the Beau Biden Foundation, named after Hunter’s late brother and former Delaware attorney general, the Post reported.
The report also provided photographic images of a Delaware federal subpoena given to The Post show that both the computer and hard drive were seized by the FBI in December, after the shop’s owner says he alerted the feds to their existence.
Further damning evidence was obtained from the laptop’s hard drive that seems to indicate that Hunter Biden was indeed the owner of the computer. According to the Post: “Other material extracted from the computer includes a raunchy, 12-minute video that appears to show Hunter, who’s admitted struggling with addiction problems, smoking crack while engaged in a sex act with an unidentified woman, as well as numerous other sexually explicit images.”
Twitter CEO apologizes after Trump threatens to remove big tech protections
After big tech suppressed the Hunter Biden story and blocked the White House Press Secretary from Twitter, a furious President Trump lashed out against two social media giants, Daily Mail reported.
Trump tweeted: “So terrible that Facebook and Twitter took down the story of “Smoking Gun” emails related to Sleepy Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in the @NYPost. It is only the beginning for them. There is nothing worse than a corrupt politician. REPEAL SECTION 230!!!”
Following President Trump’s tweet, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey responded, tweeting: “Our communication around our actions on the @NYPost article is not great. And blocking URL sharing via tweet or DM with zero context as to why we’re blocking: Unacceptable.”
Senate will probe Hunter Biden emails linking Joe to sense work with Ukrainian gas company
