It looks like Zuckerberg just came clean on Joe Rogan’s podcast—perhaps he sees the writing on the wall…
Obviously, we all knew this was true, but it is nice to see this stunning admission from the head of Facebook…
Zuckerberg went on to criticize Twitter’s handling of the story, but I can’t help but wonder if he is just doing this to distract from what Facebook did.
My biggest question is: why now?
Why is Zuckerberg finally coming out to tell everyone this? Is he trying to distance himself from the spooks at a quickly collapsing F.B.I?
Here’s what Zuckerberg said to Rogan:
In a functioning society, this would be the lead story on every network for the foreseeable future.
But since the corporate media are nothing more than the DNC’s lap-dog at this point, you’ll barely hear any mention of it. https://t.co/zHcSfWAUkl

#MarkZuckerberg told podcast host Joe Rogan in a recent interview that the company actively reduced the reach of #SocialMedia posts referencing the story about #HunterBiden’s laptop in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election. https://t.co/o7R81nq4jg

Fox News dissected the recent conversation:
Zuckerberg insisted that Facebook users were “still allowed to share” the Post’s reporting on the Hunter Biden laptop even as their “third-party fact-checking program” was looking into whether it was misinformation, but acknowledged that the “ranking in [the] news feed was a little bit less” and that “fewer people saw it than would’ve otherwise.”

Once again the FBI deliberately interferes with a national election. They need to be disbanded.

Daily Wire writes:
Zuckerberg’s disclosure indicates the bureau was apparently active on at least two fronts in shutting down a story that could have changed the course of the election.
Legacy news organizations including The New York Times, The Washington Post, and CNN initially dismissed the story as Russian disinformation — as did Biden — but have since acknowledged the laptop’s authenticity.
