    I don't agree that it is nothing. Not anything we didn't already know, but media manipulation. is a big issue

    However, Republicans do it too with their media outlets (i.e. Fox)

    That is why all media is garbage

    It was all over the news as "Russian propaganda" which was a lie and a cover.

    For those of us with common sense, knowledge of human behavior of men in power, and the ability to read between the lines, there is mountains of such evidence, and this is only the first tranche to be released.

    Widespread law breaking is obvious.

    Almost everyone in political seat has twitter, almost every business has twitter, almost every news publication has twitter. Twitter is huge.

    But I acknowledge your attempt to downplay this.

    You're okay with censorship because you're not the one being censored.

    Colliding with big tech in attempt to sway an election is not a nothingburger, but I acknowledge your attempt to downplay it like other lefties here.

    This we agree on.. Need to get to a point where the two party system can no longer hold water and the paradigm shift back to the center.

    There are hundreds of examples so far. Read the news about what your party has been doing for years.

    Democrats are far worse than anything any foreign country has done to destroy this country.

    What did the Trump administration allegedly communicate about with Twitter? Was it to kill a story about possible criminal activity by Trump in order to affect an election outcome? What stories were killed?

    What many "knew" was the false narrative the Biden administration was creating using the FBI and social media. Did you parrot it was was Russian disinformation and the emails were phony? Is that what you were posting?

    Why don't you get a better news source and read the ones which are reporting on it so you know the facts.

    I suppose it's possible that someone might not know that the term "government" is broader than merely those working in the WH.

    So you really have not sought out the actual reporting.
    Again I referred to the "handling" do you know to what that refers?
    And you don't even know of the FBI contacing Facebook?

    Fox News isn't a high tech social networking platform that suppresses political speech by banning its viewers though.

    Why were DNC reps flagging Republican tweets for removal?

    Use the report feature like everyone else unless of course you are trying to use your influence and position to insure those tweets are removed thus controlling conservative speech on a "public" forum.

    Authoritarian 101.

    Have you read the emails? Unbelievable. I guess the speech Nazis who were in cahoots with the DNC thought that they were untouchable.

    Twitter bitch, Vijaya Gadde, was conspiring behind the back of the boss, Jack Dorsey. She thought she could pull this off. Oh wait, she did. Besides being shamed forever, I wonder if she will be held personally responsible for the damage she caused.

    It will be a great thing if the American public can learn and appreciate what colluding to win an election really looks like.
    Kevin McCarthy promises us that come January '23, this will happen.

    (1) Kevin McCarthy on Twitter: "We're learning in real-time how Twitter colluded to silence the truth about Hunter Biden's laptop just days before the 2020 presidential election. In 32 days, the new House Republican majority will get answers for the American people and the accountability they deserve." / Twitter

    Dorsey is 100 percent culpable for not firing this bitch once he found out
