Senator Josh Hawley Pulls The Trigger On Zuckerberg’s Facebook

Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley (R) blasted off a letter to Facebook on Wednesday demanding that they answer for their choice to censor a story by the New York Post that claimed to establish a connection between Ukrainian corruption and Joe Biden — a connection that the Biden campaign has long denied.

According to Breitbart, a communications representative for Facebook, Andy Stone, said in a tweet earlier Wednesday that the Post‘s article was “eligible to be fact checked by Facebook’s third-party fact checking partners. In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform,” he wrote.

But that was not anywhere near sufficient for Josh Hawley, a Republican senator and staunch defender of free speech.

“The seemingly selective nature of this public intervention suggests partiality on the part of Facebook,” Hawley wrote in a letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, as Breitbart reported. “And your efforts to suppress the distribution of content revealing potentially unethical activity by a candidate for president raises several additional questions, to which I expect responses immediately.”
