Musk Twitter Dump Confirms Censorship
Musk Twitter Dump Confirms CensorshipFollow @KnightsTempOrg
We all knew it already, but it's still good to have it confirmed. Elon Musk's release of internal Twitter correspondence around the censoring of the New York Post's blockbuster "Hunter Biden laptop" story provides the firm proof that Twitter under Jack Dorsey and Parag Agrawal was staffed with Democratic Party partisans who censored information they thought might help get Donald Trump re-elected.
In a Twitter thread on Dec. 2, journalist Matt Taibbi exposes the smoking gun -- the frantic attempts to claim without evidence that any reference to the NY Post's story had to be banned from the platform because it might have come from "hacked materials." This, we can see now, was never seriously believed, even inside Twitter, as the email exchanges make clear.
The Post story was no "hack." It certainly was not "Russian disinformation." Nor was it "unsafe." The executives running Twitter in the 20 days before the 2020 presidential election clearly knew that, and tried to find other justifications for their blatant censorship.
In a series of secretly recorded interviews with Twitter employees, Project Veritas had already confirmed that "shadow-banning," manipulating the number of followers shown by certain accounts, and selectively "de-boosting" certain tweets in its algorithms was a well-established, standard manipulation of the platform's stated purpose: "We serve the public conversation. That's why it matters to us that people have a free and safe space to talk."
Still, Taibbi's disclosures are the paper trail proving these policies were discussed and enforced at the highest levels of the company prior to Musk's purchase. Indeed, the unfairness of these policies was apparently the very reason Musk moved to buy Twitter for $44 billion. Musk has been promising to make these disclosures public since taking over the company, and smartly gave them to Taibbi to vet before doing so.
But where will all this go from here? The controlled legacy media are doing their part to make sure nothing really changes: The whole story is being downplayed to the point of public invisibility. The Biden regime will certainly not be stirred into action in defence of freedom and truth, because these Swamp denizens hate both those virtues as much as they detest America. As for Twitter itself, a huge and fast-growing advertising boycott by the Woke corporations is clearly only the first stage in a concerted campaign to destroy the platform altogether. If you think Elon Musk is going to save us, you clearly need to pay closer attention to reality!
