Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey sounded like every mob enforcer and shakedown artist in history: Nice paper you got there, New York Post. Shame, should something happen to it. He knows full well media outlets depend on social media, and Google search algorithms, to help readers access our reporting.

Sen. Ted Cruz wasn’t fooled: “Mr. Dorsey, who the hell elected you and put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report, and what the American people are allowed to hear?” he thundered. “Why do you persist in behaving as a Democratic super PAC, silencing views to the contrary of your political beliefs?”

Dorsey tried to claim it was all a mistake that had been fixed, but The Post account remained locked, even as he spoke.

“Can the New York Post post on their Twitter account?” Cruz asked.

“If they go into their account …,” squirmed Dorsey, before Cruz cut him off.

“No, is your answer to that,” fumed Cruz, “unless they genuflect and agree with your dictates.”

Besides, if it was an honest error, then why do they only happen to one side? As Sen. Marsha Blackburn noted, Twitter has “censored” President Trump 65 times and Joe Biden zero. “There is a pattern of subjective manipulation of information.”

Nor can Twitter and Facebook, which also moved to suppress The Post’s reporting, claim there’s anything wrong with the stories. Asked if they had any “evidence” of that, Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg both admitted they didn’t.

Some folks think the paper should’ve just caved immediately and deleted the story. Yet the problem isn’t The Post’s failure to squelch stories — it’s Big Tech’s heavy-handed shakedown.

  1. How thoroughly will Twitter cover Biden’s departure from the White House (IF ELECTED) when Geo. Soros’ gang of anti-American Socialist/Marxist begin their ultimate quest to seat Kamala Harris as POTUS?

  2. Well the Leftist is not just censoring The Post! On FB yesterday, I was posting a prayer to someone, and a header came up for me shorten the post? I have also had headers saying, that they will tell me when they will post my message???? There had also been friends of mine that post prayers to comfort each other and the same thing happens to them! I jokingly told them that is was the FB JAIL, then to started to them also! See, we are PRESIDENT TRUMP, supporters! We got tired of read all of stuff about VP Biden, so if we saw some thing good about President Trump, we would post to our pages and share them!
    Like the STORY about PRESIDENT TRUMP, being nominated for (“NOBLE PEACE PRIZE”)! Well that was taken down pretty much after it was posted! The Left doesn’t want any thing positive about President Trump? This is AMERICA, we are not a third WORLD COUNTRY, so we are suppose to be able to speak freely? Any more you have to be politically Correct, like his/her/gendered friendly? Doesn’t his/her account for the two Sexes ??????????

  3. BLACKMAIL, THREATS……..YOU DO NOT HAVE THE PULL YOU THINK YOU HAVE OVER THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!!! THE PEOPLE GAVE YOU SOME POWER (JUST AS THE DID FOR ACTORS, PRODUCERS, ETC IN THEATER) BUT WE CAN JUST AS EASILY PUT YOU OUT OF BUSINESS, AND PUT YOU IN PRISON, TOO!

  4. I’m sick and tired of being censored. The heads of Twitter, Facebook and others should be held accountable for their actions. Thank God I still have choices.

  5. I hope President Trump wins the election on November 3. Then he can begin to change the law(s) and take away the social media’ s monopoly on what they can allow and not allow on their sites.
    Even if he looses I would use the last few weeks to get the laws changed.
    President Trump has not only had to fight the Democrats, but Main Stream Media as well. This is just NOT the America I grew up with

  6. Dorsey and Zuckerberg are just downright terrorist liars pieces of shit if you think your companies are going to continue to stand after all this fucked up shit that you’ve done you’re in for a big surprise big when everybody starts shutting down their accounts on Facebook and Twitter you guys are going to be left in the dust holding your dick’s
