Chris Valace: Facebook, Twitter via NY Post Hunter Biden banning report ‘I’ve got a real problem’

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace told the Fox News Rundtown podcast that the decision to ban Facebook and Twitter from sharing a series of reports exploring Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings in the bombshell New York Post was made Friday.

“I’ve got a real problem with it. I think you’re either inside or you’re outside,” Vlace Les said. “And when I say either it’s the Wild West and you post everything – and I understand the concern after what happened in 2016 with the disintegration of Russia – or you put everything there and if you have a problem So out of that … then put a word to your users there and say, ‘We can’t confirm this story’ or ‘There are some questions in this story.’

“But just to ban it and say, ‘No one is allowed to discuss this story or post this story’ – which, you know, is out there and you can’t put Ginny back in the bottle, it was against New York.” Post page – really strikes me as big brother smacking. “

On Wednesday, the paper said he received emails from a laptop computer belonging to Hunter Biden. An email indicated that Byden had introduced his father, Joe Biden, an executive at the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, who was vice president of the United States. Biden has repeatedly refused to discuss Hunter’s foreign business interests with him, and his campaign has denied having a formal meeting with the executive.

He added, “That’s not to say it’s not true, but I think it needs a lot of investigation. The person who ran the computer store is legally blind, not even sure who came up with the computers. He says, though The story keeps changing, that he gave it to the FBI last December, but, you know, they’re not confirming it.

“Now, he says he gave it to Rudy Giulia’s lawyer,” Wallace continued. “Rudy Giulia’s is not the most independent source on all of this stuff. So I think it’s perfectly appropriate to investigate, but I’m not sure I’ll go with it this time either.”
