House Republicans are busting Facebook WIDE OPEN.
The Republicans asked Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, to hand over communications between Facebook and the FBI related to the social media platform’s suppression of the Hunter Biden “laptop from hell” story prior to the 2020 election.
“Zuckerberg stated during his recent appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast that the social media platform limited the New York Post’s story across Facebook user news feeds before the 2020 presidential election,” reported Breitbart.
In addition, Zuckerberg claimed that the limiting of the spread of the story came from warnings issued by the FBI about disinformation and polarizing content.
35 Republican lawmakers wrote a letter to Zuckerberg that said, “We have seen in recent months how some in government have sought to use Big Tech to censor divergent viewpoints and silence opposing political speech.”
The lawmakers added, “Facebook’s suppression of the Post article—and allegations of Biden family corruption highly relevant to the 2020 presidential election—following guidance from the FBI is highly troubling.”
“Facebook also suppressed stories about Zuckerberg’s appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience,” Breitbart reported. “Breitbart News senior tech reporter Allum Bokhari described the curious silence on the platform after its CEO appeared on the most popular podcast on the planet:”
“Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s first appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience, the most-listened to podcast in the world, contained a number of bombshell revelations, foremost among them that the FBI was involved in the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story.
Yet these news stories, which attracted massive attention on other platforms, gained surprisingly little traction on Facebook.”
