BREAKING NEWS: Credibility Of Facebook & Twitter On The Line After They Try To Hide Leaked Email
The credibility of Facebook and Twitter are on the line today after the organisation appear to have got into bed with US Democrat hopeful Joe Biden by deliberately limiting the distribution of a damaging email between his
son Hunter Biden and an adviser to a Ukrainian energy company.
The 2015 email indicates that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to Burisma, thanked Biden for “giving an opportunity” to meet former Vice President Joe Biden.
The former vice president has previously said he has “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”
In an effort to stop the spread of the damaging Biden information both Twitter and Facebook took extraordinary censorship measures against The News Corp owned New York Post over its exposés about Hunter Biden’s emails — and leveled baseless accusations that the reports used “hacked materials.”
The suppression by the social media group who have taken political sides came despite presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign merely denying that he had anything on his “official schedules” about meeting a Ukrainian energy executive in 2015 — along with zero claims that his son’s computer had been hacked.
Facebook and Twitter have deliberately moved to stop the spread of the damaging information despite in the past pushing claims that President Trump was elected due to Russian influence a claim that was later discredited.
The excuse Facebook is dishing out is that Facebook and Twitter may have been hacked.
Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone has admitted that the questionable social media organisation has “reduced distribution.” of the damaging email.
Twitter issued a statement about the incident after Fox News reached out about the story, claiming it took action against the article due to the company’s “Hacked Materials Policy.” Twitter is blocking the post from being shared on its platform.
Fox News attempted to send via direct message the article titled “Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad” to another user multiple times but was continually met with the same error message.
On Wednesday afternoon, NY Post business reporter Noah Manskar said the outlet’s official Twitter account had been locked due to the Biden story being sourced from allegedly “hacked” information.
“The Post’s primary Twitter account (@nypost) has also been locked because the Hunter Biden stories violate its rules against ‘distribution of hacked material,’ per email we received from Twitter,” he wrote.
Facebook came under intense scrutiny after the 2016 election after reports that revealed Russian troll farms were spreading misinformation or otherwise partisan posts, groups, pages and even public events on the platform ahead of the election in an effort to interfere with U.S. politics.
The Pozharskyi email was obtained by the Post from a computer hard drive left at a Delaware-based tech repair shop.
