Facebook Employee Admits FB is Suppressing Reach of Hunter Biden Laptop Story by New York Post


Have you heard about the latest scandal involving Hunter Biden?

Did you know that the FBI has seized a laptop reported to having damning info on Hunter Biden?

And did you know that a Senate committee is also investigating emails on that laptop connecting both Hunter and Joe Biden to Ukraine?

If not… you’re not alone.

It appears that Facebook is openly suppressing the spread of this story. 

Andy Stone, who is the Policy Communications Director at Facebook, posted on Twitter:

While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want be clear that this story is eligible to be fact checked by Facebook’s third-party fact checking partners. In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform.


Whatever happened to free speech and free press?

Despite the fact that nothing has been PROVEN false about the story, Facebook’s employees are openly admitting that the platform is suppressing the story.

More details below:

Both Facebook and Twitter have no openly admitted that they are stopping the spread of the Hunter Biden story.

The worst part?

They are now slamming the New York Post, a credible news organization, as a "tabloid."

According to Fortune Magazine:

A spokesperson for Facebook took to Twitter on Wednesday to say the media company would restrict the spread of a tabloid story that recounts the alleged discovery of a “smoking gun” email linking this year’s Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, to corruption in Ukraine.

The decision by Facebook is significant since the platform has served as a key vehicle for spreading disinformation, especially during U.S. elections. The “smoking gun” nature of the story has been met with incredulity among reporters across the political spectrum. Here is how the Facebook spokesperson, Andy Stone, responded to the story:

The article in question alleges that someone left a laptop with a sticker for the Beau Biden Foundation—a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting child abuse and named after Vice President Biden’s late son—at a computer repair shop in Delaware and then failed to pick it up. The laptop allegedly contains a slew of compromising information about Biden’s other son, Hunter, who has struggled with alcohol and drug addiction.

The owner of the shop then allegedly gave a copy of the laptop’s hard drive to an associate of President Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani. The story also alleges the hard drive has been circulating among Republican operatives, including Steve Bannon, since September.

The report has been met with widespread skepticism. Critics have questioned the timing of the story—20 days before Election Day, with dozens of states already in the middle of early voting—and the unlikely possibility that someone forgot a laptop containing all sorts of sensitive information at a repair shop.

Whether or not you believe this story is real, do you think Facebook and Twitter would censor a similar story about President Trump or any of his children?

For some reason... we doubt it.

President Trump and his campaign are aware about the story.

Still, there is good news in this story.

The New York Post is fighting back against the smears.

According to the Post:

So much for Facebook’s claims to be a neutral platform: One of its top execs just put the social media giant firmly in the pro-Biden camp.

Andy Stone, the social media company’s policy communications manager, boasted about burying The Post’s story on proof that Hunter Biden merchandized access to his dad.

Stone’s tweet Wednesday morning: “While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want be clear that this story is eligible to be fact-checked by Facebook’s third-party fact-checking partners. In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform.”

Censor first, ask questions later: It’s an outrageous attitude for one of the most powerful platforms in the United States to take.

Especially when Stone wears his own bias on his sleeve: The quick biography he posts on Twitter shows his long history of working for Democrats, including lefty former Sen. Barbara Boxer of California and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Though he doesn’t specify what “this story” means, it can only be our scoop on Hunter — emails that show he introduced an executive of Burisma, the Ukrainian natural gas firm on whose board he sat, to his dad while Joe was vice president.

Biden Sr. has insisted he had “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” a statement at odds with the massive trove of data recovered from a laptop at a Delaware repair shop.

No one is disputing the veracity of The Post’s story — not even Hunter Biden. His lawyer George R. Mesires wouldn’t deign to comment on the reporting, simply attacking the messenger. The Biden campaign did the same, dismissing it all as “discredited,” while saying that no meeting showed up on Joe Biden’s official schedule on those dates. (Well, if it wasn’t “official,” guess it didn’t happen.)

Yet Facebook is deliberately trying to keep its users from reading and deciding for themselves what it means.

This when it did nothing to restrict access to the recent New York Times story on President Trump’s tax returns. And the Times didn’t say a word about how it obtained that confidential personal data.

We've known for years that the mainstream media is in the tank for Democrats.

Unfortunately, not it appears that social media is in the tank for the radical left as well.

Hopefully the truth is still able to get out there!
