So the New York Post has been locked out of its @nypost Twitter account since Oct. 14, allegedly because the paper had posted information that had been “hacked.” As we learned from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey at a Senate hearing Wednesday, they can’t apply their new rules retroactively, so the Post has to delete all of its posts about the Hunter Biden laptop and then repost them to get around the ban.
You could say that Twitter’s decision to block URLs leading to the Post’s exposé only increased interest in the Hunter Biden story, and you’d be correct. Though the mainstream media is happy to report on some nobody named Miles Taylor who just outed himself after two years, they’re ignoring Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden’s former business partner who’s blowing the whistle on Joe Biden’s involvement in some shady deals with China.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson is the exception and had Bobulinski on as his guest for the full hour Tuesday night, and a reported 7,562,000 people tuned in to watch. By comparison, CNN pulled in just shy of 2 million viewers for “Anderson Cooper 360.”
Tucker Carlson delivered more than 7.5 million viewers for his interview with Tony Bobulinski on Tuesday night. Have never seen a cable news number like that for a singular program outside of a big event (debate/town hall/election). Happy to correct if the memory is off here.

Nearly 7.6 million Americans tuned in to watch Tucker’s interview with Hunter Biden’s former business partner https://t.co/X2puA1eALk

Impressive numbers. Many others, myself included, listened on satellite radio.

And the Fox app for those of us not at home when it aired

That is quite high. It denotes interest.

And the MSM ignores the story.

And yet it didn’t trend on Twitter. So odd!

It’s the only place to tune in for the story!

I’ll bet @brianstelter was watching.

This happens when only 5 media outlets in the whole country will provide news.
Rest of them are busy working with big tech to suppress the spread of information.
Liberals are anything but advocates of free speech.
In their world the only free speech is speech they approve.

More impressive than the ratings was the content, especially since no one else in the national media seems to have any intellectual curiosity about the story or any motivation to do the basic work of journalism.

I watched the entire interview. The Biden family has compromised our national security esp with China. They need to be held accountable, not given the reins of leadership.

People crave real journalists

#Tucker had 7.56 million viewers for his Bobulinski interview.
At least 7.56 million people know that Joe Biden is bought and paid for by the Chinese Communist Party.

It's black and white they were surrounded by Chinese intel and influence operatives. Even without the emails US intelligence would have known and they should have known. All of what has come out just confirms they knew

Hey @BretBaier, you could boost your failing ratings, too, if you got back to covering real news, dropped the majority-leftist "opinion" panelists, and especially your increasingly cozy relationship with the most incompetent FNC anchor, air-head @marthamaccallum.

We didn’t watch, but apparently, Bret Baier did cover it Wednesday, because it made Dana Milbank sad.
Sad to hear @BretBaier, whose journalistic integrity I respected, desperately hawking the latest Hunter Biden trash tonight.
— Dana Milbank (@Milbank) October 28, 2020
Yeah, we’re sure Milbank was a regular Fox News viewer, and now Baier has lost him.
