Facebook Silent on Missing Hunter Biden 'Fact Check'
Facebook continues to stonewall journalists on the decision-making process that led to its suppression of the New York Post’s pre-election reporting on Hunter Biden, and the role of Anna Makanju, Joe Biden’s former adviser on Ukraine policy, who held a senior content moderation role at Facebook when the story was censored.
When Facebook made its censorship decision, less than a month before the November presidential election, its policy communications director Andy Stone took to Twitter to explain that the story had been suppressed and that a “fact check” was pending.
“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,” said Stone at the time.
