Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted his company “was wrong” in censoring a New York Post story regarding Hunter Biden just days before the 2020 presidential election; saying the platform “corrected” the situation within 24 hours.
“That to me seems like you’re the ultimate editor,” committee chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said during his opening statement. “The editorial decision by the New York Post to run the story was overridden by Twitter and Facebook in different fashions to prevent its dissemination. Now if that’s not making an editorial decision I don’t know what would be.”
“We made a quick interpretation using no other evidence that the materials in the article were obtained through hacking, and according to our policy, we blocked them from being spread,” Dorsey testified. “Upon further consideration, we admitted this action was wrong and corrected it within 24 hours.”
“This incident demonstrated that we needed one and so we created one we believe is fair and appropriate,” he said, referring to the company’s new process in vetting posts.

BLOCKING for BIDEN: New ’60 Minutes’ Clip Shows Reporter Saying Hunter's ‘Laptop Can’t Be Verified!’
A new segment from an upcoming episode of 60 Minutes was released on social media Thursday afternoon; showing the President exposing host Lesley Stahl’s hostile line-of-questioning and defense of Hunter Biden’s laptop scandal.
“I think it’s one of the biggest scandals I’ve ever seen, and you don’t cover it,” said the President.
“Because it can’t be verified!” claimed Stahl.
“Why do you say that? Of course it can be verified. They found the laptop,” fired-back Trump.
“It can’t be verified!” insisted the 60 Minutes reporter.
“He’s gone into hiding for five days!” added the President on Joe Biden’s absence from the campaign trail.
“Well he’s preparing for your debate!” claimed Stahl.
TRUMP: "What can't be verified?"
STAHL: "The laptop!"
TRUMP: "Why do you say that?"
STAHL: "Because it can't be verified."
TRUMP: "The family, on the laptop — He's gone into hiding for five days."
STAHL: "Well he's preparing for your debate." pic.twitter.com/sfOj8AgyMx

“Even the State Department admitted this was a concern… The President needs to stress what he did for the American people,” he added. “He said we’d have a roaring economy and we did.”
