This is pretty rich. Now that Elon Musk has purchased Twitter, Jen Psaki assures us that President Joe Biden has “long been concerned” about the power of large social media platforms and believes tech platforms must be held accountable for the harms they cause. OK, who’s going to hold Twitter (and Facebook) accountable for suppressing the New York Post’s scoop on Hunter Biden’s laptop and all of the emails on it? That did some damage to the Post, which was locked out of its Twitter account for six weeks because it wouldn’t take down the story, which was not Russian disinformation as John Brennan, James Clapper, and Leon Panetta all attested. Biden is damn grateful to Twitter for shutting down that story, or should be.

The Democrats’ big argument is that January 6 was planned on social media, and that’s why there have to be such restrictions on what can be posted (and why Donald Trump isn’t allowed on Twitter).

Very good point.

So this is a long-held belief of Biden. Right.
