(PresidentialWire.com)- In the fall of 2020, the New York Post released its explosive report on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop. It published details that left no doubt that, despite his frequent denials, Joe Biden was entirely aware of Hunter’s shady business deals in Ukraine.
Within hours of the story’s release, Twitter and Facebook barred users from sharing the Post article on their platforms. The New York Post’s official Twitter account was suspended until it agreed to delete the offending tweet about the Hunter story. When then-White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEneny tweeted out the article, Twitter temporarily suspended her as well.
The following day, the Post published a second article, this time about Hunter’s dirty deals with the Communist Chinese government. And again, Twitter locked the article out. If anyone attempted to share the story, Twitter flagged the tweet with a message saying “your tweet couldn’t be sent because this link has been identified by Twitter” as being “potentially harmful.”
Yes. Potentially harmful to Joe Biden’s election.
In the wake of outrage over this level of press censorship, Twitter claimed the Post’s Hunter Biden articles violated their terms of service regarding the publishing of leaked or hacked materials.
A “term of service” that appears to be applied only in “service” to Democrat politicians.
This week ProPublica published a “vast cache” of IRS tax information belonging to billionaires like Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, and Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett.
The documents in question could only have come from someone within the Internal Revenue Service.
In other words, ProPublica published illegally leaked information.
But rather than barring users from sharing the ProPublica article or suspending ProPublica for violating its terms of service, Twitter did nothing.
In the article in question, ProPublica was brutally honest about its objective – namely to give ammunition to those who are pushing for significant tax increases on the rich. Calling “wealth inequality” the “defining issue of our age,” the article expresses irritation that the only debate happening involves making “incremental changes” in the top tax rate.
In other words, for nakedly partisan political reasons, ProPublica published the private tax information of rich Americans illegally provided to them by someone in the IRS. But because it advances a core Democrat agenda item, Twitter completely forgets its so-called “terms of service” against publishing leaked or hacked information.
Funny how that happens.
