Zuckerberg Held the Hunter Laptop Story for a Week at FBI Request


Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg sat down for a three-hour interview with Joe Rogan. At one point, he explained why Facebook hid the Hunter Biden laptop scandal for seven days. It seems that right before the story was set to go live, the FBI told him it might be Russian disinformation.

“I mean, basically, the background here is the FBI, I think, basically came to us, some folks on our team, and was like, ‘Hey, just so you know, like, you should be on high alert. There was, we thought that there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election. We have it on notice that basically, there’s about to be some kind of dump that’s similar to that. So just be vigilant,’” Zuckerberg said.

“So our protocol is different from Twitter’s. What Twitter did is they said, ‘You can’t share this at all.’ We didn’t do that,” Zuckerberg continued. “What we do is we have, if something was reported to us as potentially misinformation, important misinformation, we also use third-party fact-checking program, because we don’t want to be deciding what’s true and false. And for the — I think it was five or seven days when it was basically being determined whether it was false, the distribution on Facebook was decreased, but people were still allowed to share it. So you could still share it; you could still consume it.”

We now know the FBI invented the narrative that the laptop is Russian disinformation. The FBI attacked democracy by interfering in the 2020 election in a big way. Millions of people said they would not have voted for Joe Biden if they knew about the laptop.

If you had doubts about the corruption at the FBI, doubt no more.
