Big Tech Finally Under Investigation By House GOP

( Remember when the New York Post’s reporting of the Hunter Biden laptop ahead of the 2020 election was banned on social media and labeled fake news? The public was also prohibited from sharing links or referencing the “forbidden disinformation.”


It turns out the story wasn’t fake at all. Just ask the New York Times.


Kicking and screaming, they authenticated that the laptop was real.


On Thursday, Republicans accused Twitter and Facebook of attempting to shield Joe Biden from additional scrutiny over the misconduct described in the NY Post piece.

Irritatingly, more than a year later, the “enemedia” is acting as if they have a scoop and preaching to the choir that the story “is true.”

You don’t say?

“Shortly before the 2020 election, Twitter suppressed an explosive New York Post article detailing how Hunter Biden used the position and influence of his father, now-President Biden, for personal gain, with the apparent awareness of President Biden,” ​​Republican legislators wrote to Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal in an open letter released Thursday.

“We wrote to Twitter at the time with important questions about Twitter’s knowing suppression of First-Amendment protected activity. Twitter ignored our letter and, in the months since, has avoided any meaningful accountability for its actions,“ they continued.

“Now, with even the New York Times confirming the accuracy of the Post’s reporting, we are investigating Twitter’s actions to interfere in free and fair election-related public discourse on its platform to the benefit of President Biden and the detriment of former President Trump.” the letter concludes.

An additional letter was penned to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.  The legislators wrote, “Facebook’s actions gave rise to other news outlets, tech platforms, and even Biden himself dismissing the Post story as disinformation or untrue—when, in fact, it had never been rebutted. The Post article was likely to have significant implications for the presidential election. Although the Post explained exactly how it obtained the emails on which it reported and included pictures of certain emails, Facebook still suppressed the article. The mainstream media followed Facebook’s lead, wrongly claiming the Post story was “disinfo” and unverified. It appears that Facebook knowingly and deliberately used its platform to control election-related information accessible to the American people shortly before the 2020 election, and that Facebook did so to the primary benefit of then-Vice President Biden. This irresponsible conduct demands a thorough investigation so that we may understand how Big Tech wields its enormous power over the free flow of information to the detriment of free and fair elections.”

Congressman Jim Jordan said matter of factly, “Big Tech, Big Democrat Party and Big Media all colluded to keep critical information from the American people in the run up to the most important election we have — the presidential election, so we’re launching an investigation.”

There’s a line from “All the President’s Men,” the movie about the Watergate investigation and Nixon’s subsequent resignation. A bookkeeper says, “If you guys could get John Mitchell, that would be beautiful.”

Many share a similar sentiment that if the legislators could get Twitter and Facebook, “that would be beautiful.”

But it’s the President, and all his men, that most on the right want.
