然而，互聯網平台這一言論管控行為卻產生了強烈的“反效果”，甚至連一些反感 唐納德 特朗普總統和希望 喬 拜登勝選的美國主流媒體，都沒法給這種做法辯解了。
一篇指控 喬 拜登“貪腐”的“爆炸性”報導
具體來說，該報稱，在去年4月的時候，疑似 喬 拜登的兒子亨特的筆記本電腦因為進水、損壞，被人送到了美國特拉華州的一個電腦修理鋪進行維修。
電腦中，存儲有亨特和他爹 喬 拜登與烏克蘭一家能源公司的高管的往來郵件，其中，一封2014年的郵件顯示：
另一封2015年4月的郵件是該公司高管感謝亨特安排他們與美國副總統 喬 拜登見面。
至此，相信大家讀到這裡，肯定會認為《紐約郵報》這篇報導揭露了 喬 拜登父子在烏克蘭的重大腐敗問題。
只不過，美國共和黨保守派一直不認同這種說法，並堅持懷疑 喬 拜登真正要求開除烏克蘭該檢察官的原因，是因為，此人在調查他兒子所在的那家烏克蘭能源公司。
美國社交媒體公司為 唐納德 特朗普總統送上大禮
畢竟，那些相信 喬 拜登的人們早就對這類陰謀論免疫了
而不信 喬 拜登的人，也只會一直不信任他。
就連一些反感 唐納德 特朗普總統、並清楚《紐約郵報》的報導漏洞百出的美國媒體，也被“推特”和“臉書”的操作搞得很為難。
The two major U.S. social media platforms, “Twitter” and “Facebook”, joined forces to block an unfavorable report by the American conservative media “New York Post” that involved US President Trump’s opponent Joe Biden in this year’s US election. , Claiming that the content of this report is untrue, and that the source is “violating”.
However, the Internet platform’s speech control behavior has produced a strong “counter-effect”, and even some mainstream American media who dislike President Donald Trump and hope that Joe Biden will win the election can’t justify this approach.

An “explosive” report accusing Joe Biden of “corruption”
Judging from the current discussions and quarrels on the matter in the US media and social networks, the cause of the matter is: The New York Post, a conservative American media close to President Donald Trump, published an article on Wednesday local time. “Pound Depth” reported that the paper obtained evidence of corruption by Donald Trump’s presidential opponent Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Specifically, the paper stated that in April last year, the laptop computer of the suspected Joe Biden’s son Hunter was sent to a computer repair shop in Delaware, USA for repairs because of water and damage.
During the repair process, the repairer found out;
On the computer, there are emails between Hunter and his dad Joe Biden and the executives of an energy company in Ukraine. Among them, a 2014 email shows:
The executives of the Ukrainian company hope that Hunter, who has just become a director of the company at the time, can use the influence of his father, the vice president of the United States, to serve the Ukrainian company.
Another email from April 2015 was that company executives thanked Hunter for arranging them to meet with US Vice President Joe Biden.
The New York Post also claimed that there was also an indecent video of Hunter having sex with a woman while taking drugs and many indecent photos of Hunter.
Later, the “New York Post” claimed that just after this email about Ukrainian company executives thanking Hunter for arranging them to meet with Vice President Joe Biden of the United States, within less than 8 months, the then Vice President of the United States Joe Biden began to put pressure on the Ukrainian side. He asked the country to expel a Ukrainian prosecutor and finally got his wish.
After the Ukrainian prosecutor was fired, he said that he had been investigating the Ukrainian energy company to which Hunter (Joe Biden’s son) belongs.
At this point, I believe everyone reading this will definitely think that the report of the New York Post has exposed the major corruption problem of Joe Biden and his son in Ukraine.

The Communist International forces media said,
However, the actual situation is not so simple.
This is firstly because, according to numerous reports in the U.S. and Western media in 2016, Joe Biden put pressure on the Ukrainian side and asked for the dismissal of the Ukrainian prosecutor because he wanted to maintain political relations in Ukraine. , Inaction in many corruption cases.
Moreover, it is not only the US government that is dissatisfied with this Ukrainian official, but also other Western governments.
However, the conservatives of the Republican Party of the United States have always disagreed with this statement, and insisted on suspicion that the reason why Joe Biden really requested the dismissal of the Ukrainian prosecutor was because this person was investigating the Ukrainian energy company where his son worked.
They have been unable to come up with any evidence of real hammer, and even held a hearing to investigate Joe Biden in the U.S. Senate controlled by the U.S. Republican Party, but they also failed to find that Joe Biden was to protect his son, so he asked Ukraine to expel that. The prosecutor’s evidence, on the contrary, many perjury witnesses from the U.S. Democratic Party have proved Joe Biden’s “innocence.”

Secondly, as analyzed by mainstream media such as the New York Times, the report of the New York Post, in fact, did not come up with anything that could allow Joe Biden to use his own power as the vice president of the United States to help his son. The evidence for this is only to use some emails from the executives of the Ukrainian company that met with Vice President Joe Biden.
However, whether this meeting was for the so-called dirty business or just a courtesy, the “New York Post” couldn’t tell.
Joe Biden said that what the New York Post wanted to imply through those emails did not exist.
In addition, the “New York Times” also pointed out that the “New York Post” was unclear on how to obtain this information.
According to the New York Post, they were able to get the email information because the person who repaired the laptop suspected to belong to Hunter, the shop owner discovered:
No one came to take the computer for a long time, so he reported the matter to the US FBI. When the FBI took the computer, he copied a copy of the information and he gave it to US President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Zhu Liani’s lawyer Robert Costello. Giuliani recently handed these information to the “New York Post”.
But the “New York Times” pointed out that the “New York Post” did not make it clear who the so-called laptop from Joe Biden’s son Hunter was sent to the repair shop, and why the repair shop person would look for it. Come to FBI?
What did the FBI say about the matter, and why did the repair shop copy the data in the computer and hand it over to President Donald Trump’s lawyer Giuliani’s lawyer Robert Costello, etc. The key information.
(The picture shows the many queries raised by the New York Times on the New York Post report)
Therefore, in the view of the New York Times and other American media, this report, which was declared by the New York Post to expose Joe Biden’s corruption problem, is still holding some very marginal information and constructing an attack on Joe. Biden’s political conspiracy theory.
American social media company gives President Donald Trump a big gift
Therefore, if the matter only develops here, that is, when the US media publishes an article that points out many problems in the New York Post report, it is possible that this report will not cause much disturbance in the American public opinion field.
After all, those who believe in Joe Biden have long been immune to such conspiracy theories.
People who don’t believe in Joe Biden will only always distrust him.
But embarrassingly, at this moment, the two major Internet social media in the United States, “Twitter” and “Facebook”, did a very “unhelpful” thing: on their respective platforms, they used this report to “new the news”. They blocked a large number of accounts that reposted this news on the grounds of falsehood. Not only did the editors of the “New York Post” not be able to post links to articles written by themselves on these platforms, but even the White House spokesperson McKenna Ni’s personal accounts were directly blocked.
Even more embarrassing, there are the reasons given by “Twitter” when they blocked McNerney: They accused her of publishing information obtained through the actions of hackers, violating the Twitter company’s website regulations.
But because the US media that disliked President Donald Trump before, when writing articles attacking President Donald Trump, they also used reports similar to the New York Post report, and they were often criticized by President Donald Trump as “fake “News” has almost never been blocked like this by “Twitter” and “Facebook”. This overly obvious “double standard” operation immediately caused intense controversy on the US Internet.
A large number of American conservative politicians and conservative netizens are now angrily denouncing that the two Internet social platforms are stifling freedom of speech and freedom of news reporting and blocking the truth. Some even accused them of interfering in the U.S. election and helping the U.S. Democratic Party to fight Donald Tron. President Putin, and requested that the two Internet platforms intervene in the presidential election of the United States of America and block the truth immediately.
US President Donald Trump never missed this opportunity. On his personal Twitter account, he slammed “Twitter” and “Facebook” to cover up “crimes” for “corrupt” Joe Biden. the behavior of.
Even some American media that disliked President Donald Trump and knew that the New York Post’s reports were full of loopholes, and they were also embarrassed by the operations of “Twitter” and “Facebook”.
The National Public Broadcasting Network (NPR) of the United States stated in its report that, although the practices of the two Internet social media platforms, although they were intended to combat false news, they did attract criticism, and the two Internet platforms did not say anything. clear:
Why do they think the “New York Post” report is “false information” that needs to be blocked?
This has further raised doubts about the inconsistency of their labeling.
(The screenshot is from NPR’s report)
Although the “New York Times” also mentioned that the “New York Post” was blocked on the Internet, the newspaper completely avoided criticism of the two Internet platforms on the Internet, and focused on the critics of the “New York Post”. The report itself.
Regarding the two Internet platforms, currently, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has posted on his personal social account. He admitted:
Twitter had a problem with this report in the New York Post. When it was blocked, it did not explain the reasons well.
He insisted that these bans have nothing to do with political positions.
But no matter what the truth is, or what the original intention is, the “deleting of posts” on Twitter and Facebook may have sent shells to President Donald Trump so that he can once again hype that the United States Public opinion is manipulated by mainstream media and social networks, and only he knows the truth.
For Donald Trump’s presidential election, this can be described as a gift from heaven.
