Zuckerberg Tells Rogan Facebook Suppressed Hunter Biden Laptop Story After FBI Warning

Zuckerberg Tells Rogan Facebook Suppressed Hunter Biden Laptop Story After FBI Warning

I don’t normally make purely political type posts like this one at this blog, but one reason I was kicked off Twitter for months and months was over Twitter censorship over this stupid Hunter Biden lap top story.

I posted a link or two about the Hunter Biden lap top scandal, Twitter didn’t like it, accused me of “suspicious behavior” on their platform, and they locked me out of my account for months.

It also just ticks me off how Big Tech is nothing but an extension for the Democrat Party and progressive ideals – god help you if you tweet or Facebook anything critical about Biden or the trans-lunatic agenda, because those platforms will suspend you or whatever.

I’ve had friends on Facebook get put into “time out” over posting stuff critical about Biden.

I am fed up with the anti-conservative bias on these garbage social media sites – they CLEARLY favor progressive views and causes.

August 25, 2022

Mark Zuckerberg finally admitted on Thursday that Facebook dropped the ball when the company banned the sharing of The Post’s exclusive report on Hunter Biden’s laptop ahead of the 2020 election.

The billionaire CEO of Meta said he regretted Facebook’s handling of the bombshell story during an appearance on “The Joe Rogan Experience” — but he still defended the process as “pretty reasonable.”

Zuckerberg opened up about the controversial media suppression after the host pressed him to explain his views on how tech platforms should handle content moderation on sensitive subjects.

“When something like that turns out to be real, is there regret for not having it evenly distributed and for throttling the distribution of that story?” Rogan asked about The Post’s Hunter Biden scoop.

“Yeah, it sucks,” Zuckerberg said. “It turned out after the fact, the fact-checkers looked into it, no one was able to say it was false … I think it sucks, though, in the same way that probably having to go through a criminal trial but being proven innocent in the end sucks.”

He said the platform opted to limit sharing on the story — but not halt it entirely — after the FBI told Meta employees to be wary of Russian propaganda ahead of the election.

“Did [the FBI] specifically say you need to be on guard about that story?” Rogan asked, referring to The Post’s article.

“No, I don’t remember if it was that specifically, but it basically fit the pattern,” Zuckerberg said.

He also said, “The FBI basically came to us… [saying], ‘Hey, you should be on high alert. We thought that there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election. We have it on a notice that there is about to be some kind of a dump that is similar to that, so be just vigilant.’”

Mark Zuckerberg defended Facebook’s actions in limiting the reach of the Hunter Biden laptop story

…Appearing on Thursday’s installment of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Zuckerberg was asked about Facebook’s suppression of the New York Post’s reporting that shed light on the shady foreign business dealings of the son of then-candidate Joe Biden.

Zuckerberg began by stressing how Facebook took a “different path” than Twitter, which completely censored the Post’s reporting while Facebook limited its reach on the platform.

…Zuckerberg insisted that Facebook users were “still allowed to share” the Post’s reporting on the Hunter Biden laptop even as their “third-party fact-checking program” was looking into whether it was misinformation, but acknowledged that the “ranking in [the] news feed was a little bit less” and that “fewer people saw it than would’ve otherwise.”

“By what percentage?” Rogan asked.

“I don’t know off the top of my head, but it’s- it’s meaningful,” Zuckerberg responded. “But we weren’t sort of as black and white about it as Twitter. We just kind of thought hey look, if the FBI, which I still view is a legitimate institution in this country, it’s a very professional law enforcement- they come to us and tell us that we need to be on guard about something then I want to take that seriously.”

by Jared Gans

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg this week told popular podcaster Joe Rogan that Facebook did limit stories on the news feed related to the New York Post story about President Biden’s son Hunter Biden and his laptop after warnings from the FBI, but defended the law enforcement agency as a “legitimate institution.”

Zuckerberg said on an episode of Rogan’s podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” that was uploaded on Thursday that the FBI reached out to his company ahead of the 2020 presidential election to warn them to take note of potentially polarizing content. This warning came after Russia used social media platforms, including Facebook, to post content intended to be polarizing ahead of the 2016 election.

…Zuckerberg said he did not remember if the FBI specifically mentioned the Post’s story in its warning and said he does not want Facebook to be the “ministry of truth” in deciding what is considered misinformation.

Meta noted in a tweet Thursday night that Zuckerberg testified before the Senate almost two years ago that the FBI had warned Facebook of potential foreign hack and leak threats.

… Zuckerberg’s defense of the FBI comes as many conservatives have criticized the agency for conducting a search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property in Florida earlier this month. Some Trump allies have called for defunding the FBI as a result.

There you have it. Big Tech and the Federal Government, in favor of leftists and Democrats, colluded to shut down free speech, or any speech that was critical of Democrats or Biden. It’s repulsive.
