Day 5: Twitter Holds New York Post Hostage Over Biden Corruption Story

Newspaper 'has been informed what is necessary to unlock their account...'

It has been five days since Twitter censored the New York Post‘s account because of its reporting on Joe Biden and Hunter Biden‘s criminal influence-for-cash enterprise with China and Ukraine, The Epoch Times reported.

Post editor Sohrab Ahmari confirmed the censorship, and politics editor Emma-Jo Morris said Twitter will not reinstate the account of the nearly 220-year old newspaper, which Alexander Hamilton founded, “unless we self-censor.”

Twitter confirmed the Post “has been informed what is necessary to unlock their account,” that is, to delete the tweet that shared the Biden family corruption story, Fox News reported.

The account has not tweeted since Oct. 14.

The Post published information from Hunter Biden’s laptop hard drive and emails, which indicate he sold access to his father, who served as the Obama administration’s leader of Ukraine policy.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has accused the Post of a “smear campaign,” but his campaign has not denied the substance of the allegations.

Twitter has blocked links to the Post‘s story, too, ensuring that voters will decide the 2020 presidential election without the Biden information unless they see it somewhere else.

Facebook adopted similar measures to Twitter by “limiting the story’s reach.”

Twitter justified its censorship by claiming the emails violated the platform’s rules against hacked materials, despite failing to take any actions against the illegally obtained tax records of President Donald Trump.

The Post said the information on Hunter’s laptop was not hacked.

“Information in the reports came from data extracted from a MacBook Pro laptop that a Delaware repair shop owner has said was dropped off in April 2019 but never picked up,” the Post reported.
