Twitter accused of ‘politically motivated censorship’ after blocking Biden’s corruption story

Social media giants accused of ‘politically motivated censorship’ after blocking corruption stories involving Donald Trump’s Democratic rival Joe Biden

  • Twitter and Facebook prevented users from linking to Biden’s corruption stories
  • The sites claimed that the article was to verify facts and violate hacking rules
  • New York Post reported that Biden’s son allegedly offered to introduce Ukrainian business partners to his father (who was vice president) in exchange for money

Social media giants have been accused of “ politically motivated censorship ” after deliberately blocking stories that could help revive President Trump’s ailing reelection campaign.

Both Twitter and Facebook, where former Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg is now a senior executive, prevented users from linking to stories of corruption involving Trump’s Democratic rival Joe Biden.

The feud exploded after the New York Post reported that Mr. Biden’s drug-addicted son Hunter allegedly offered to introduce his Ukrainian business partners to his father, who was vice president at the time, in exchange for money.

The report was based on an email recovered from an abandoned laptop turned over to Donald Trump’s Republican allies.

The New York Post published a photo, reportedly found on an abandoned laptop, showing Hunter with a crack pipe in his mouth

But despite appearing in a respected newspaper, the social media giants blocked users from spreading the story, with Facebook saying it should be fact-checked and Twitter saying it violated the rules for using hacked material .

The Twitter accounts of the newspaper, of the official Trump campaign and of White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany were even temporarily not allowed to post at all because of the furor. The Post also published a photo, reportedly found on the same computer, showing Hunter with a crack pipe in his mouth.

More emails emerged last night in which Hunter allegedly struck a deal with a Chinese energy conglomerate to pay ‘The Big Guy’ identified by unnamed sources as Joe Biden, ten percent of the profits of a newly formed company.

An enraged Trump lashed out, saying, “ So terrible that Facebook and Twitter brought down the story of the ‘Smoking Gun’ emails about Sleepy Joe Biden and his son Hunter. ‘

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was forced to offer a humiliating apology, describing the decision to block links to the story as ‘unacceptable’.

Mr. Biden, who heads the pre-election election campaign, has denied all claims of corruption against him. Last night he said, “It’s another smear campaign.”

Supporters of Mr. Biden have questioned the authenticity of the emails, released last week by Mr. Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani. Mr. Giuliani has pledged to release more bombshell information ahead of the November 3 elections.

The actions of Facebook and Twitter provoked a protest from Republicans who accused them of censorship.

The party last night filed an official complaint with the federal election commission over the ban on social media.

Trump spokesman Tim Murtaugh said, “ If Twitter locks down the main account of the President of the United States’ campaign, it is breathtaking political interference and nothing short of an attempt to manipulate the election.

Joe Biden’s Silicon Valley friends aggressively block negative news stories about their husbands and prevent voters from accessing important information. This is something from communist China or Cuba, not from the United States. ‘
