Earlier this week in an interview with Joe Rogan, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg admitted that Facebook had limited the reach of the New York Post’s bombshell story because it fit the “pattern” that the government agency had warned them about.
Zuckerberg blamed the FBI for Facebook’s censoring of the Hunter Biden laptop reports before the 2020 election.
Back in October 2020, Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to authorize subpoenas for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to testify on their censorship of the damning New York Post reports on the Biden Crime Family and Hunter Biden’s laptop.
The vote was 12 to 0 with all members of the committee approving the subpoenas.
Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey came in to testify before the Senate Committee on October 98, 2020.
Mark Zuckerberg told the committee that Facebook did not censor anyone for posting the
Mark Zuckerberg: Senator, as I’ve told the committee before, we relied heavily on the FBI’s intelligence to alert us through public testimony and private briefings.
Senator Ron Johnson: Did the FBI contact you and tell you the New York Post story was false?
Mark Zuckerberg: Senator, not about that story specifically.
Senator Ron Johnson: Why did you throttle it back
Mark Zuckerberg: They alerted us to be on heightened alert of the risk of hack and leak operations… To be clear on this, we didn’t censor the content. We flagged it for fact-checkers to review and pending that review we temporarily constrained its distribution.
Here is the video from a post Meta published Friday to defend Mark Zuckerberg’s exchange with Joe Rogan.
As we've said, nothing about the Hunter Biden laptop story is new. Below is what Mark told Sen. Johnson in Oct 2020 and what Mark told Joe Rogan this week. The FBI shared general warnings about foreign interference – nothing specific about Hunter Biden. https://t.co/pHtzvh6r0r

Obviously, Mark Zuckerberg is once again not telling the truth.
Facebook censored and banned numerous Gateway Pundit reports on material from Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Facebook even harassed The Gateway Pundit to tell us they were banning reports on the Hunter Biden laptop even if we DID NOT post them to our page.
We received dozens of these messages even when we did not publish our own content on our Facebook page knowing Facebook would censor the content and give us a strike.
Zuckerberg is not being entirely honest.
