We're back to threatening private social platforms again I see? Shouldn't he be, you know, promoting second term policies or something?


It comes after both networks limited sharing of a New York Post story about Joe Biden’s son Hunter’s business dealings, over which questions have been raised about sourcing and accuracy.

The Trump campaign accused the social networks of bias, with the President fuming: "They closed down her account. She’s the White House press secretary.

"Because she’s reporting the truth, they closed down her account. So let’s see what’s going to happen."

It's the latest in a string of face-offs between Trump and social media firms - which he claims treat him unfairly and boost stories beneficial to his opponents.

But US law explicitly offers protection to private firms who remove content from their services which is objectionable or against their house rules.

Source

The revelation itself is pretty lackluster in itself.

The source has been identified as repair-shop owner as John Paul Mac Isaac, an avid Trump supporter who couldn’t get his facts straight when reporters later questioned him about the timeline of events laid out in the Post’s story. This laptop was supposedly just 'left' at his store by an unidentified person.

The owner of the repair shop said that he wasn’t sure the laptop belonged to Hunter Biden.

The story is based on a photo of an email that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent to Hunter Biden to “thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together.” We have no way to verify that the email is authentic.

The Biden campaign says “no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place” because it wasn’t on Biden’s schedule. Of course, that isn’t evidence a meeting didn’t occur — but the email (if authentic) isn’t evidence that a meeting did occur, either. The New York Post did not confirm that the meeting happened, and it’s unclear from the email if the meeting did occur. factCheck.org

Pretty disappointing for an October surprise, I know, but that doesn't give the president the right to wave his powers around against social media platforms.

Terrible form Trump. Try again.

Nothing more needs to be said.

Terrible form Southern Guardian. Try again.

Burisma payed Biden through his son to use his influence as VP to quash a corruption investigation into Burisma.

There are freaking pictures of Biden with a crack pipe and the biden campaign is not denying it. Do you have proof that those are fake? the source is irrelevant do you have any proof to say the contents are fake? Has biden said those are fake?

the fact that a a known crack head with no experience was making millions from a foreign asset and his daddy is on live tv bragging about stopping an investigation that involved his son is enough for anyone with common sense to realize what was going on. Hence I get why you don't understand it.

the additional information in the laptop is just icing on the cake.

You know it is kind of like the Net Neutrality you support.


If a telecommunications carrier can't censor what websites you see or prioritize some sites over others why should the social media companies be able to do it?

Serious question.

You either want Neutrality or you don't. If not, cool. Just don't whine when the telcos start charging and throttling the crap out of youtube and streaming platforms they don't agree with or get paid enough from.

His 2nd term policies are well known to almost everyone, obviously you have your head up the Left’s ass so you can’t hear what they are but you will see them when he wins.

Facebook and Twitter censored the story in a piss-poor attempt to save Biden’s ass because they know he is a piss-poor candidate that will most likely lose in a landslide.

You have a problem with a company that does bad things, against the rules things, against the law things, getting looked at for punishment? Why do you think that way? Twitter did not play nice and is now going to have to sit in the corner.

oh oh, you might be right.

Just checked webster dictionary and they changed the definition of methpipe to a pipe that allows one to become enlighten gentleman and able to run billion dollar company with no experience.

What censorship? You can still get this full-story from rag-tag partisan outlits like NYPost right?

You find it accepted to force other private companies to blatantly distribute partisan propaganda? So much for the freemarket, no?

I have a problem with companies doing bad things.

I also have a problem with baseless accusations, especially at election time, for political purposes.

You're pushing the latter, evidently.

Most Americans will not know of this story until ABC-CBS-NBC-CNN-NYT-WaPo reports it anyway. They're keeping a lid on it, but the pressure is building. Only the tip of the iceberg has been revealed thus far.
