During Thursday’s broadcast of “Fox & Friends” on the Fox News Channel, Sen. Ted Cruz warned of the implications of Big Tech’s decision to attempt to limit the exposure of a story involving Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden alleging possible wrongdoing in his business dealings.
Big tech appears to be going all-in on saving the Biden campaign and running cover for them by their recent actions. It’s like watching Chris Wallace try and save Biden at the debate, only on a fistful of steroids.
Cruz described it as serious and having “crossed a line that is very dangerous.”
Republican Sens. Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley and Lindsey Graham told reporters outside of the Senate Judiciary Committee room that they believe the social media giants are interfering in the 2020 elections by censoring and suspending accounts that share stories on Hunter Biden from the New York Post.
TODAY, blocking links to ANOTHER NYPost story alleging Hunter Biden sold access to communist China for millions. I just tried to share that story. Here’s Twitter’s response 👇 pic.twitter.com/NZpw4gmcb2

During today’s ACB hearing, Cruz made an announcement that should have Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey sweating bullets. The time for talk is over, Ted wants Jack Dorsey on the record and will likely ask him to answer the damning questions he laid out in his letter he fired off to him yesterday.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey responded to the backlash tweeting: “Our communication around our actions on the @nypost article was not great. And blocking URL sharing via tweet or DM with zero context as to why we’re blocking: unacceptable.”

The Wednesday report from the Post alleges that Joe and Hunter Biden met with a Burisma executive in 2015. Twitter then started to censor the story on its platform that night and suspended multiple accounts who had shared the post.
On Thursday, Twitter suspended President Donald Trump’s official campaign account after it posted a video relating to the Post’s report.
Twitter also locked White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s personal account on Wednesday after she shared the article on her page.
