265. Big Tech Censors Hunter Biden Story

October 16, 2020

This censorship is a serious abuse of the power Congress granted social media companies so they could even exist, and a grave threat to free speech and our ability to communicate in the lead-up to an election.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr for episode 265 of the In The Tank Podcast. The podcast covers the news that proof has emerged that Hunter Biden leveraged his father's position at Vice President to enrich himself and his family. And they cover the BIGGER NEWS that social media giants Facebook and Twitter were preventing people using their platforms to promote the story to their followers. This censorship is a serious abuse of the power Congress granted social media companies so they could even exist, and a grave threat to free speech and our ability to communicate in the lead-up to an election.
