Let’s take away all the names involved in this story. Representatives of our government went to a private company and told them to suppress a story that is undoubtedly true. Whether you’re a Republican or Democrat, that action is undeniably a violation of the 1st Amendment.
Left wing media pundits have gone into overdrive since Friday night doing their very best to discredit Elon Musk and journalist Matt Tabibbi for the release of the so called “Twitter Files.”
Via Fox News:
“Liberal pundits rushed to discredit a bombshell Twitter thread from Elon Musk and Substack journalist Matt Taibbi revealing the internal communications of Twitter employees and U.S. lawmakers surrounding the censorship of the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story in 2020.
The revelations, dubbed the “Twitter Files,” were posted on the social media platform Friday night by Taibbi at the behest of Musk, who provided emails and other documents showing the inner workings of how Twitter had engaged in censorship prior to the 2020 presidential elections, including quashing the Post’s story.
Among the revelations was that Twitter staff had open channels with powerful third parties, including members of both political parties, so that they could flag tweets they deemed problematic and have them “handled.” Taibbi asserted that because there were more liberals within Twitter, requests to throttle conservative accounts were fielded more.
