Two names tell the tale: Facebook’s Andy Stone and Jessica Hertz.
Who are they, you ask?
“While I will intentionally not link 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, we are reducing its distribution on our platform.”
And Jessica Hertz? She is described in this Politico story as “until recently a Facebook executive focused on government regulations.”
What is Andy Stone’s background? Here’s the headline from Fox:
Facebook official who said platform is reducing distribution of Hunter Biden story has worked for top Dems
The Fox story reports of Stone:
“He previously served as communications director for the House Majority PAC between 2012 and 2014; press secretary for Democratic California Sen. Barbara Boxer between 2011 and 2012; and press secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) between 2009 and 2011, according to his LinkedIn profile.”
As noted, Jessica Hertz is no longer with Facebook. Where did she go? Politico headlined:
Biden transition elevates former Facebook exec as ethics arbiter
That story on Hertz reported:
“Joe Biden’s transition team named Jessica Hertz, until recently a Facebook executive focused on government regulations, as its general counsel on Wednesday and charged her with navigating conflicts of interest and other ethical issues for the Biden administration-in-waiting — a move that drew immediate fire from the left.”
Well, kudos to that leftist group who complained about Hertz. The name of the group? The Revolving Door Project, “which focuses on executive branch personnel and transitions.”
As the saying goes, even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
But in fact, what is on display here that is suddenly in the news yet again because of the desperate attempt of Big Tech to censor The New York Post bombshell is the ongoing, blatant and out front effort to silence conservatives – and protect Joe Biden.
Take this headline, for example:
Twitter locks out Kayleigh McEnany from her personal account for sharing New York Post’s Hunter Biden report
Got that? The Twitter account of the White House Press Secretary has been locked because she had the nerve – the nerve – to tweet out a front-page exclusive from one of the country’s top newspapers. And so, therefore, Twitter shut her down.
Let’s be straight-up here. This is outright Silicon Valley fascism. Run by left-wing operatives who float freely between from being Democrat operatives to Big Tech honchos or vice versa.
They have one objective: Silence conservatives. Silence dissent. Silence President Trump. Shut down, in this case, any news that reflects negatively on Joe Biden.
One way or another, thanks to conservative media – they will not get away with it.
