Twiter's double standards protecting Biden's corruptions

Twitter faced unrelenting backlash after blocking the spread of a New York Post bombshell that was highly critical of Hunter Biden on Wednesday, as critics pointed out the platform gave no such treatment to stories from CNN, The New York Times and other media with highly questionable sourcing.

CEO Jack Dorsey even admitted his company was wrong to intervene on the Hunter Biden story without sufficiently explaining why.

Dorsey called his company’s actions “unacceptable” after Twitter initially claimed it took action against the article due to the company’s “Hacked Materials Policy.” Twitter had blocked the article from being shared on its platform and suspended several accounts for posting it, prompting Republican lawmakers to demand a probe into what they called blatant censorship.

Conservative comedian Tim Young, who has used Twitter to build his name recognition, blasted what he called the platform’s hypocrisy.  

“After three years of anonymously sourced, disproven stories with no evidence pushed by CNN, The New York Times, Buzzfeed, the Washington Post -- just to name a few -- about Trump, Twitter suddenly decides that a story that makes Biden look bad is what they should edit,” Young told Fox News.  

The New York Post report, entitled “Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad,” touched upon suggestions that the former vice president’s son had unscrupulous financial and business ties to a natural gas firm in Ukraine -- Burisma Holdings -- and that his father later stepped in to have a probing prosecutor fired for looking into the matter.

The article, which Fox News hasn’t independently verified in full, also claimed that the outlet had been given emails showing Hunter had introduced his father to a top executive at the energy firm, less than a year before the prosecutor was forced out.

The claims were extremely damning to the Democrat less than three weeks before the election, so Twitter’s initial decision came off as a clear attempt to shield the information from voters, critics said.  

But, similar stories seen as damning to President Trump, his allies or other conservatives have spread on Twitter all the time – so critics were quick to point out the apparent double standard.  

“If there was a policy about hacked documents not being allowed on Twitter, why hasn’t every Wikileaks or Edward Snowden post been banned? Twitter and Jack have pulled back the curtain 100 percent now,” Young said.  

“If it’s a negative story about Trump, including something as ridiculous and unfounded as the pee tape story, they’ll make it trend. If it’s about Biden or the Democrats, they’ll do anything they can to suppress it, including silencing a major media organization,” he continued. “I wonder if Twitter will allow a link to this story - calling their bias out - to be posted on their site?”  

Daily Caller reporter Chuck Ross sought out to prove the platform’s double standard by posting a series of widely criticized or debunked stories that coincided with the liberal agenda. He shared “the Yahoo story that was based on fake info from Christopher Steele,” a “debunked McClatchy story that was probably planted by Fusion GPS” and “Slate’s debunked Alfa Bank story” but all of them were able to remain on his Twitter feed without any issue.
