Liberal Reporter Has a Spot-on Take About How the Media Will React to the ‘Twitter Files’
Spencer wrote about Twitter revealing what they did internally to quash the Hunter Biden laptop story. We’ve known it was probably happening behind closed doors for years, but now we have the evidence, thanks to Elon Musk’s purchasing of the social media platform. The ‘Twitter Files’ exposed an extensive censorship operation at the company, where employees deleted tweets that their Democratic Party overlords found problematic. The critics would point out that Donald Trump’s staffers made similar requests to Twitter concerning the removal of tweets they found disreputable, but as with anything within liberal media institutions, it wasn’t balanced.
It’s like the talking points the Left shoveled out about the IRS targeting scandal in 2013, where people pointed out that a few progressive non-profits were denied tax-exempt status to show that this wasn’t a partisan operation. The number of conservative non-profits held in regulatory purgatory by the IRS vastly outnumbered that of their liberal counterparts. And like this internal policy at Twitter, it greatly benefitted liberals more than conservatives.
