Facebook Is ‘Reducing the Reach’ Of The DAMNING Hunter Biden Email Story By The New York Post
It was a great big bombshell story so big that Josh Hawley referenced it as a 'hypothetical' question posited to Judge Amy Coney Barrett... but Silicon Valley is doing their best to make sure you won't see it.
Is it any wonder that folks like Dan Bongino have been convinced that it's time for lawsuits and the Federal Election Commission to start taking the issue of political interference and in-kind donations seriously?
No less a political activist 'journalist' than Brian Stelter came out and 'said the quiet part out loud'.
What's at issue here?
It's the Biden Burisma story. There were new developments in that saga which ClashDaily explained in another of today's articles -- SMOKING GUN: Secret Emails Show That Hunter Biden Introduced Ukrainian Exec Connected To Burisma To Joe
You would think that a potential smoking gun of evidence demonstrating pay-for-play and the deliberate sale of White House access by a relative of the Vice President might be a story worthy of note in days leading up to that same Vice President's attempt to become POTUS 46.
But no. The same group that gave us 3 1/2 years of Russian Collusion reporting over A Steele Dossier bankrolled by Hillary Clinton and source from a Russian Spy is now 'too pure' to run a story that isn't 100% watertight.
Forget the fact that this story fits neatly within a number of other details we know about Hunter Biden, Burisma, Ukraine, Corruption, and contact with the White House. No, really. They want us to forget all about it.
So much so, that Facebook is limiting the reach of the story that featured that breaking news.
Facebook moved Wednesday to limit the spread of The Post’s reporting on bombshell emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop that show he introduced his father, Joe Biden, to a Ukrainian energy executive — a move that led President Trump’s campaign to accuse the company of “interfering” in the election.
The social network may also have independent fact-checkers examine the exclusive story based on the younger Biden’s emails, according to Facebook spokesman Andy Stone.
“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,” tweeted Andy Stone, a Democrat who is now part of the Facebook Communications team. -- NYPost
Josh Hawley was livid.
“I want to know on what grounds you are actively censoring a news report about potentially illegal corruption by the Democrat candidate for president,” Hawley said on Twitter. “If you have evidence this is ‘disinformation’ disclose it immediately.”
Facebook also said The Post’s story would be eligible for review by third-party fact-checkers, a step it generally takes for news articles that raise red flags for misinformation.

Here's some of the reaction.
Remember when Silicon Valley promised to shove blue policies down the throats of Red states, whether they liked it or not? Do you think this is what they meant?
