Trump Slams Facebook, Twitter For Censoring Biden Story In NY Post

Washington: United States President Donald Trump rebuked Facebook and Twitter on Wednesday, for blocking links to a New York Post article purporting to expose corrupt dealings by election rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden in Ukraine.

The newspaper said it had obtained a computer abandoned by Hunter that implicated his father in his Ukraine business affairs.

But the former Vice President has repeatedly denied any such involvement.

Following which, Facebook and Twitter placed restrictions on linking to the article, saying there were questions about its validity.

“This is part of our standard process to reduce the spread of misinformation,” said Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone.

“Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad,” the newspaper’s headline read.

Twitter said it was limiting the article’s spread due to questions about “the origins of the materials” included in the article.

“So terrible that Facebook and Twitter took down the story of ‘Smoking Gun’ emails related to Sleepy Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in the @NYPost,” Trump wrote on Twitter and blasted at the two media giants.

“It is only the beginning for them. There is nothing worse than a corrupt politician.”

 

The President was referring to part of the 1996 Communications Decency Act that protects technology companies from being sued over users’ content on their platforms.
