he bombshell exclusive was trending all Wednesday morning on social media platforms until Big Tech stepped in to run protection for the Democratic presidential candidate.
Facebook announced it would censor the story by “reducing its distribution on our platform.”
TWITTER'S JACK DORSEY SAYS COMPANY BOTCHED BLOCKING NYP ARTICLE ON ALLEGED EMAILS ON HUNTER BIDEN'S LAPTOP
Twitter also intervened to protect Biden from the scandal Wednesday by blocking The Post’s Twitter account, @nypost, claiming the story violates its rules against “distribution of hacked material.”
Links to the story were tagged by Twitter with a warning message: “This link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful.”
Twitter later attached a new warning to the story: “The link you are trying to access has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially spammy or unsafe.”
But the only “potentially harmful” or “unsafe” impact of The Post story is on the Biden campaign — and, now, on the credibility of Facebook and Twitter.
Did Facebook and Twitter impose the same censorship on The New York Times story on President Trump’s leaked — or “hacked” — tax returns two weeks ago?
Did they ever fact-check the Times’ and The Washington Post’s debunked “Russia collusion” tall tales?
Did they interfere with BuzzFeed spreading the Steele Dossier tissue of lies?
Big Tech only suppresses information that reflects badly on the Biden campaign.
The emails and photographs we have published speak for themselves. They come from the hard drive of Hunter’s laptop computer, legally obtained by The Post after he abandoned it at a Mac-computer repair shop in Delaware.
They tell an alarming story of Biden family grift in Eastern Europe and China, including in Ukraine during the time Joe was vice president in charge of America’s interests there.
MIRANDA DEVINE: JOE BIDEN AND SON HUNTER'S BURISMA CONNECTION – VOTERS HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW THE TRUTH
The emails we published fly in the face of Joe’s claims that he knew nothing about his son’s lucrative foreign business dealings.
One email The Post published showed that, in 2015, a senior member of Burisma thanked Hunter “for the opportunity to meet” his father, then the vice president.
It was months after that introduction that Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in aid unless the Ukrainian government fired its top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, who says he was investigating Burisma for alleged corruption.
The Post’s story goes to the heart of Joe Biden’s integrity, and American voters deserve to know the details.
