In A Major Reversal Twitter Is No Longer Blocking The New York Post Article On Hunter Biden. But The New York Post Twitter Account Is Still Blocked

GOP senators fumed that users were unable to share information from the New York Post about Bidens and alleged secret emails 


 * Twitter on Thursday said it had changed its policies in light of 'feedback' over its handling of the Biden Ukraine story 
 * It came after Republicans threatened to subpoena the company and its CEO 
 * Earlier in the week, Twitter stopped people from sharing the NY Post story about Biden and his alleged dealings with a Ukrainian businessman 
 * It also locked multiple Trump-linked accounts which had posted links to it 
 * The company claimed the story violated its policies because it contained 'private information' 
 * Facebook also restricted how people shared the story and said it was because they wanted their 'fact checkers' to vet it first 
 * There was immediate uproar among Republicans who said the two sites were trying to interfere in the election by protecting Biden 

Twitter is no longer blocking links to the Joe Biden Ukraine story and has now changed its policies to say it will label posts it finds questionable instead of removing them or stopping people from sharing them, after being threatened with subpoenas and investigations by Republicans. 

The about-turn came on Thursday night after an explosive 24 hours during which Trump's re-election campaign and his White House Press Secretary had their accounts locked for posting links to the Biden story. 



WNU Editor: I may now be able to post on Hunter Biden, but Twitter is still holding the New York Post's Twitter account hostage unless they delete their Hunter Biden stories .... Twitter still holding The Post’s account hostage over Hunter Biden links (New York Post).

If you believe a word major media tell you at this point you are a first class moron.

I appreciate you both, but many a Democrat would dispute Amp's opinion.

So maybe it is not so obvious.

Agreed Amp. Gotta have two sources to begin to be believable as a rule anymore for me.
Despite Guillani [sp] I was initially skeptical of the release of the hard drive info. I'm still casting a bit of a jaundiced eye at the whole thing, most of the press being as they are.

Andy: you are a salt water boy and not a soldier. soldiers no longer carry bayonets

Image result for do are soldiers still have bayonets
The US military still has bayonets in the inventory. The US military still uses bayonets on occasion for ceremonial purposes and sometimes for training, though even that is fairly rare. When it comes to combat, the last major bayonet charge by US military was in 1951 during the Korean War.

Political bias in media doesn't threaten democracy — other, less visible biases do

Clerk posted at 7:30. I think he got kicked out of an old folks home The Alzheimers patients couldn't stand the nut. So the state pays for home care instead.

9:57 was using a play on words.

To AJ

My comment was not making fun of you. It was making fun of someone else. You did not play along. I thought you might not and that is okay, since it was a little inside baseball.
