(Right Country) – It seems that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey seems to have realized what a massive mistake he just made.
Or is he just trying to save face?
Following the hugely controversial censorship of an explosive story on emails, photo, and video shared with the New York Post that give a disturbing look into the life of the Biden Crime Family, namely, Hunter Biden himself, Twitter decided to go censor-crazy.
Without even waiting for fact-checks of the story, the network, following Facebook’s lead, banned sharing the link to the New York Post story anywhere on Twitter.
Plenty of major GOP actors, like Rep. Jim Jordan and White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnaney, were even locked out of their account for attempting to share it!
This is sheer insanity.
The New York Post is an over-200-year-old legacy media outlet that had a credible, explosive story to share having to do with the Democrat candidate for president just weeks away from the general election.
Twitter allows all kinds of unverified, salacious garbage from other legacy media outlets if they’re bashing Trump (does anyone remember the Steele dossier being censored? Yeah, me neither).
Why did they take such interest in stopping the spread of this one story?
If you answered “partisanship,” then you’ve struck upon the only reasonable explanation for this shameful censorship.
Now, it appears, Dorsey claims that he has repented and that suck a move was “wrong.”
“Straight blocking of URLs was wrong, and we updated our policy and enforcement to fix. Our goal is to attempt to add context, and now we have capabilities to do that,” Dorsey tweeted.

Yeah, Twitter isn’t a publisher.
They don’t want to be.
They enjoy legal protections that block them from being sued as a publisher would, and yet they want to selectively edit the information shared on their network?
No, Jack, you can’t have it both ways.
It is time that Big Tech was held completely accountable for their actions. They have not been able to help themselves from taking advantage of the iron grip they hold on the free flow of information.
They wanted to create networks so massive that they have become the modern public square, and they don’t get to just decide who is allowed to speak and who isn’t.
They aren’t just playing with fire—they’re literally interfering with an election.
The American people deserve to know the truth about the Biden crime family, and they certainly aren’t going to get it from most of the mainstream media.
Those who are willing to publish dirt on Biden have been seriously restricted from sharing their findings entirely on the basis of political partisanship on the part of those operating the public realm.
This has to end.
