MSNBC analyst Brendan Buck panicked over recent Twitter file posts that exposed the media and big tech for siding with a political party to get Biden into office by killing the Hunter Biden laptop story. Buck claimed that the new information will empower the right by validating “conspiracies” that political censorship is a thing.

“Brendan, last night, Elon Musk promoted a series of tweets revealing internal documents claiming Twitter took steps to restrict access to a New York Post article from October 2020 about Hunter Biden,” Reiser said. “We should note NBC has not seen or verified those documents, but why do you think Musk is doing this and what impact could it have if Republicans launch investigations into Hunter Biden when they take control of Congress?”

Buck said Republicans will “launch an investigation into Hunter Biden and this angle of it, but also Twitter in general.”

He also suggested that the incident has major implications for political debates around big tech in general.

“There is a long-running theme through Republican politics right now, that big tech has censored conservatives, the term is ‘shadow banning,’ all these things that people talk about-how free speech from ‘just conservatives’ has been muzzled, and I think they’re gonna use this whether or not it shows anything of that,” he claimed. “What it does show is that [Twitter] had a close relationship with Democrats – much closer relationship than with Republicans.”

He suggested that this one incident of censorship will bolster a larger narrative.

“That is enough. That is enough to have Republicans say, ‘Aha!, this is exactly what we have been talking about. We have been cast aside. People are censoring our speech,’” Buck said. “The entire ethos of Republicans is victimism, and the fact there are elites in power who are holding them back and this plays perfectly into that theme.”

On a personal note, as someone who writes blogs and used to own several social media pages, I can tell you firsthand that “shadow banning” is NOT a conspiracy. I lost all of my social media pages after sharing NYP’s article about Biden’s laptop and my site traffic was slowed to a trickle for a long time.

Not just mine, but people I know in the same field. Many did not survive the push to ban conservative content and stop writing altogether.

“The resulting slant in content moderation decisions is visible in the documents you’re about to read. However, it’s also the assessment of multiple current and former high-level executives,” Taibbi wrote.

Taibbi’s initial thread said that one major reason Twitter moderation leaned leftward was “Because Twitter was and is overwhelmingly staffed by people of one political orientation, there were more channels, more ways to complain, open to the left (well, Democrats) than the right,” he tweeted.
