Over half of Americans believe media censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story constitutes election interference, a new survey finds.
The survey from the Media Research Center found 49 percent of respondents said it was inappropriate for social media sites to suppress an October 2020 New York Post report that showed Hunter promised Ukrainian business partners access to his father. Twitter suspended the Post‘s account following publication and blocked users from sharing the link. Fifty-two percent of respondents said the blackout constituted election interference.
Big tech has come under fire over the past year for censoring posts on hot-button issues. Facebook has regularly removed or suppressed content that suggests COVID-19 escaped from a Chinese lab. The platform also removed posts from a Gold Star mother critical of Biden’s handling of the death of her son. Twitter this month suspended the account of Rep. Jim Banks (R., Ind.) after he referred to a transgender Biden official as a man. Source
Worthy News was censored for sharing the Hunter Biden story. Worthy News was also blacklisted for reporting on the potential Chinese lab leak in January 2020.
