In a landmark move from the big tech company, Facebook on Wednesday announced their intentions to censor the revelation that Joe Biden lied when he claimed he never discussed business with his son Hunter, as evidenced by a series of emails originally published by the New York Post, despite no fact checkers disputing the authenticity of the emails or photographs, one which seems to show show Hunter unconscious with a crack pipe in his mouth.
After the New York Post broke the earth shattering story on Wednesday and it quickly became national news, especially within conservative circles on social media, Facebook announced its intention to preemptively “reduce its distribution,” or censor the story in case it is later proven untrue by third party fact checkers.
On Twitter, verified Facebook employee Andy Stone wrote, “While I will intentionally not like to the New York Post, I want to be clear that this story is eligible to be fact checked by Facebook’s third-party fact checking partners. In the meantime,” Stone continued, “We are reducing its distribution on our platform.”
The official Trump War Room Twitter account, run by President Trump’s presidential campaign, posted an image of Stone’s tweet and asserted it as evidence that “Facebook is actively interfering with the election. Facebook is rigging the election for Joe Biden.”

On the original revelation, National File reported:
As Media Right News reported, “The New York Post released a report this morning that revealed emails that were reportedly recovered from Joe’s son, Hunter Biden’s Macbook,” that was repaired in a Delaware computer store then never retrieved. “One of the emails,” sent to Hunter, Media Right explains, is from Vadym Pozharskyi, Hunter was was doing business with. Pozharskyi was specifically “thanking him for setting up a meeting between him and Joe, who was Vice President at the time.”
In addition to these scandalous emails, New York Post also published a series of photographs retrieved from the laptop. Among them is a photo that appears to show Hunter, unconscious, with a used crack pipe in his mouth.
