“Digital Civil War”: Twitter Blocks Users From Posting Link to New York Post Biden Lobbying Story

Big Tech censorship goes nuclear.

Twitter has followed Facebook’s example by censoring a New York Post article about Joe Biden’s foreign lobbying scandal after users were prevented from tweeting links to the story, leading one NY Post editor to describe the move as an act of “digital civil war.”

As we highlighted earlier, Facebook announced that it would be preventing the story from spreading on its site after the company’s Policy Communications Manager and lifelong Democrat Party operative Andy Stone said the company had buried the article in its algorithm.

The story, which has been met with denials from the Biden campaign, claims that Hunter Biden had introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive in a Ukrainian energy firm a year before Biden pressured the government of Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who was investigating the company.

Now Twitter has moved to censor the story too by blocking users from tweeting out the link.

When attempting to tweet out a link to the New York Post, users receive a message informing them that the URL is “harmful” and the tweet doesn’t send.

NY Post editor Sohrab Ahmari described the move as a “Big Tech Coup” and “digital civil war,” explaining, “I, an editor at The New York Post, one of the nation’s largest papers by circulation, can’t post one of our own stories that details corruption by a major-party presidential candidate, Biden.”

“Republicans better wake up Big Tech is trying to eliminate freedom of speech,” remarked Donald Trump Jr.

Arthur Schwartz also highlighted how Twitter was discouraging people from reading the story by labeling it “violent or misleading content that could lead to real world harm.”

The coordinated censorship of such a massive news story by the two social media giants is a chilling example of election meddling less than 3 weeks before the vote takes place on November 3.

New York Times Complains That Cat Videos Are Being Used to Spread “Misinformation”

Can’t we just enjoy cute kitties?

Published

The New York Times has identified the latest culprit that’s to blame for the egregious spread of online “misinformation.”

Cat videos.

Yes, really, cat videos – and GIFs.

In an article titled ‘Those Cute Cats Online? They Help Spread Misinformation’, reporter Davey Alba claimed “videos and GIFs of cute animals — usually cats” were being used by “people and organizations peddling false information online.”

The article complains that news outlets like the Western Journal and the Epoch Times have weaponized cute kitties to bait traffic, which then filters through to their website and the dreaded “misinformation,” which at this point means anything that the mainstream media doesn’t like.

The Epoch Times has apparently featured cute animals in 12,062 social media posts across 103 Facebook pages, posts which include links to their political content.

Respondents found the NY Times article hilarious, with one commenting, “They seem to think it’s some sinister conspiracy when in reality it’s just people with broad interests who like nice things.”

Indeed, it’s quite funny that the same outlets who express such doomsday hysteria over ‘conspiracy theories’ routinely dream up the most absurd conspiracy theories of their own.

“We are almost at the end of the game,” remarked Dave Rubin.

YouTube Hides ‘Dislikes’ Following Mass Downvoting of Biden Administration Videos

Surely just a coincidence.

Published

on

YouTube has announced it will hide ‘dislikes’ from videos to curb “creator harassment,” with critics pointing out that this is merely a way of removing the huge amount of downvotes on videos posted by the Biden administration.

“YouTube has announced that it’ll be hiding public dislike counts on videos across its site, starting today,” reports The Verge.

“The company says the change is to keep smaller creators from being targeted by dislike attacks or harassment, and to promote “respectful interactions between viewers and creators.” The dislike button will still be there, but it’ll be for private feedback, rather than public shaming.”

Quite how viewer feedback in the form of a thumbs down icon represents “harassment” is anyone’s guess, but the immediate response to the announcement from many was that the Google-owned company was merely moving to protect the Biden White House from ridicule.

“Is this the reason?” asked one respondent, highlighting how Biden speeches and White House press briefings receive massive dislike ratios, sometimes at a rate of ten to one.

“This is for the White House account you KNOW that right?” commented another.

“The video department of the Ministry of Truth doing its part for the greater good,” added another.

Another respondent pointed out the massive dislike ratio received by the Fauci propaganda movie.

With the recent popularity of the ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ meme, this seems like another transparent attempt to protect the plunging popularity of Biden, whose approval rating just fell to a record low.

As we previously highlighted, despite being “the most popular president in U.S. history” after his *totally not unusual* vote record, Joe Biden didn’t fare too well on YouTube in the days after his inauguration, where every single video posted to the official White House channel received massive downvote ratios.

Thanks to YouTube, those ratios will never be a problem again.
