(ReliableNews.org) – On October 14, the New York Post published a bombshell report about Joe and Hunter Biden’s links to foreign lobbyists. Shortly after the story broke, Facebook and Twitter began limiting its reach.
Facebook Policy Communications Director Andy Stone admitted that the social media giant reduced the Post’s story’s reach. He claimed the decision was a “standard process.”
While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want be clear that this story is eligible to be fact checked by Facebook's third-party fact checking partners. In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform.

Interestingly, Stone has worked for the Democratic Party in the past. According to a Fox News report, he was Sen. Barbara Boxer’s (D-CA) press secretary from 2011 to 2012. He left that position to serve as the House Majority PAC communications director for two years before landing the job at Facebook.
Did the social media giant decide to kill the Post’s story on its platform because it wants to help the Democratic Party win the 2020 election? Is Stone conspiring with his old bosses?
