    It really is bizarre. I have never had a twitter account and I knew all the relevant details in days al lthe way on the other side of the world.

    Out of all your counter- points I find the one most disturbing is that you believe it is OK to silence stories on health information? How so? Do you remember how they tried to cover up the AIDS fiasco? Covid not only wasn't allowed to run it's natural course but we shut down business and whole countries to the point natural immunity was not allowed to run it's natural course of herd immunity. Look at China. You F__K with Mother Nature and she will come back and F__k you,

    When did EVERYBODY know about Hunter Biden's laptop? As in when did EVERYBODY acknowledge it was Hunter Biden's laptop that was left at the repair shop?

    Yea, this is nothing.

    Conservatives seem to think that the left didn’t know about Hunters laptop.

    The truth is we knew, but don’t care.

    Biden should cut off the government welfare for Tesla and SpaceX, but he’s not that kind of guy.

    I see that you're trying hard to excuse this, which is just as sad. Stop trying to twist this. It was the DNC and those in charge of the DNC (which respresented Biden). The vast majority of Twitter execs and employees were dems and gladly followed instruction of deleting links and info and then silenced and banned those on the right who posted them.

    You know this. I didn't need to explain it. Let's see what else you reply with.

    Hunter who!???

    On a side note, I think Elon is going to drive Twitter on the edge of bankruptcy and then offer to buy out his significant debtors with very low offers on the threats of full bankruptcy. It might work, 15 cents on the dollar is better than 2 or 3 cents.

    LONG Before the Election...
    On October 14, 2020, the New York Post published articles containing purported emails of unknown authorship which suggested that Hunter Biden provided an "opportunity" to Vadym Pozharskyi, an advisor to the board of Burisma, to meet his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden. Joe Biden stated in September 2019 that he had never spoken to his son about his foreign business dealings

    Desperate lefties here are only proving it even more how far they will go to cover up truth.

    Keep it up guys.

    And I hope you didn't think it's going to end here? No no no, much more to come.

    Watching the Today Show this morning and they are not touching on this story at all. That's typically how NBC handles news it doesn't like. They ignore it until they have the proper talking points and rebuttals ready. I'm curious as to how long it's going to take them to come up with that?

    But...they already won. They successfully influenced the 2020 election. There is no take back from that.

    I was replying to a post claiming 'the government' was reponsible for this and that as a result it was a First Amendment issue. Clearly you know that was not the case, so it is just an issue of a political party trying to get an entity to do what they want. Do I care? no. I also don't care that Fox acts as the media arm of the GOP. I don't like Fox and you are free to not like twitter, though they aren't equivalent. Pretending it is any more than that is just playing politics.

    I am still yet to have someone explain to me how twitter not treating the story the way the GOP wanted stopped anyone from reading about it. The story was all over media, day after day. Anyone capable of accessing any form of media knew the outlines, and anyone capable of accessing the inernet anywhere in the world was capable of going to the NY Post and reading their articles. Nothing anyone has said here has even begun to address that. Acting as if twitter not presenting a story the way you want is the same as the story being 'censored' is just absurd. Just look it up like evry other adult does.

    I don't watch a lot of tv news, but I do check out the online headlines

    CNN actually has an article about it

    You just have to scroll down a lot to find it.....

    The ever changing lies by the left regarding Hunter Biden's laptop before the 2020 election and post election:

    1) Prior to the election: It's not Hunter Biden's laptop found in the repair shop.
    2) Post election: It is Hunter Biden's laptop but it is Russian disinformation
    3) Joe Biden did not know any of Hunter Biden's business dealings or business partners.

    Evidently the news media wasn't reporting on it enough for a lot of voters to have made an informed decision. That's the nature of "suppression". It doesn't have to be a complete blackout to effectively influence people with regards to voting.

    No, dismissing the Hunter Biden story as "Right wing propaganda" was all over the news.

    You think it's okay for the dems to work with big tech to suppress information that is factual and works with big tech to silence the other side? You are truly ok with this and would see it as ok if this was the reverse?

    Snip:

    "The Federal Election Commission has ruled Twitter did not violate federal elections law when it restricted the distribution of a New York Post article with unverified claims about President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, according to documents made public Wednesday.

    It also found Twitter did not violate the law by adding warning labels to former President Donald Trump’s tweets or allegedly “shadow banning” conservative viewpoints.


    The agency found in a unanimous decision that Twitter had made valid decisions based on commercial reasons, according to a statement by the commission’s Vice Chair Allen Dickerson and Commissioner James “Trey” Trainor III, who are Republicans."

    NEW: Elon Musk has just restored the Twitter account of Andrew Anglin, the neo-Nazi who founded the infamous website Stormfront and said women should be “raped and locked in cages.” Good luck getting back those advertisers, Elon.

    Just one problem. There was no Biden Administration at that time.

    And maybe there never would have been if it weren't for the DNC colliding with big tech to suppress info and silence the opposing side. There in lies the problem.

    You don't mind censorship when it's not you who is being censored. That pretty much sums up the left right now.

    Are you assuming that once Biden was elected his "team" stopped telling Twitter whose tweets to delete?

    If Elon Musks true intentions, are really to allow a platform with freedom of Speech, then I'm proud of him, and support him fully, when it comes to twitter, and allowing that.
    It would make sense, why democrats, their media, and their politicians are freaking out of him buying the platform.
