    Don't bother. You can have actual video of it taking place and they will still deny it.

    Boy, this is probably the biggest, most hugest issue facing the country right now! Hunter Biden making money off of his family name! We MUST get to the bottom of this, and the insane owner of Twitter is a big, chubby and pasty Johnny on the spot!

    Wow, you know that nobody else would ever do such a thing. The Trump kids, for example, earned everything they've gotten through hard work and native intelligence.

    He sounds like a tinfoil hat wearing nut.

    BTW, it was amusing to watch Minnesota spank Bucky again.

    The problem is that you haven't shown that. All you have is twitter executives not allowing content. Do you believe the voting public are too dumb to go to other sources that are not Twitter to get stories?

    Can you prove Fox News censors opposing voices? That is what we are talking about here.

    So now its Fauci suppressing the Hunter story? That is a new one. You really are getting desperate now. Come on, just say 'deep state', you know you want to.

    As for the rest of your....ramble, more deliberate misrepresentation. Reducing this story to dinner table talk is one of the most deliberately misleading statements I have ever seen. This was a HUGE story. On TV, on the radio, in print and especially online. There were (and still are) an endless succession of threads on this forum and othe forums where I post. It was covered on a truly bewildering range of platforms. More people could access more information on this story than would even have been possible 20 years ago.

    So, we have established that 'the government' didn't do this, we have established that the story was virtually everywhere and we have established that NOTHING was stopping people from finding out about it from an impossibly wide range of sources including the original source - the NY Post. People didn't even have to try to find this. In fact, they would have had to try in order NOT to know about this.

    So what does that leave? one platform where links to the story were removed along with a few posts. If you are unhappy with that then be my guest. If you want to deliberately mislead yourself or others into believing it is something of great significance then I will keep pointing out how absurd it is.

    Anyone who relies on Twitter as a news source has far more problems than just having stories suppressed - I'm sorry but it's simply mental
    to use Twitter as anything other than vague entertainment.

    I see you are completely oblivious to the story and what it entails. You lefties like to keep your heads buried.

    How did what happened at twitter stop people accessing the story at the source - the NY Post - or any of the thuosands of other outlets where it was available. Be specific....if you are capable of such a thing.

    You do realize it's not actually Twitter giving out news and info, it's links to news stories elsewhere that originate from Twitter. Ask the millions of people why they use Twitter to know for sure though.

    I love how people claim not to use cable news for news source, and now they also shouldn't use the internet media as news sources. Where exactly is a good source of news in your opinion?

    Twitter is used by MILLIONS of people. It links news stories to hundreds of different news sources. It's a one stop shop so to speak. That's why so many use it.

    Could it have been found elsewhere? Yes, sure, but if you don't know what to look for, it's harder to find. This substantially reduced the amount of people who would learn of the news.

    There is bias in all news sources, and it's nothing new (I suggest you look up the roll the Hearst Corp played in politics - even Benjamin Franklin's paper, The
    Penn. Gazette, played favorites). But the click-bait headlines of today's news sources are even worse, because of the need to sensationalize
    everything to get views ... want real news, wait for about two weeks after the event, and it will start to trickle through - never trust the initial "breaking news"
    crap.

    No. Post the transcript of the deposition. Not some claim by a RW clown claiming that he "won" the deposition.
