Zuckerberg says FBI pressure led Facebook to censor Hunter Biden laptop story

Appearing on “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast on Thursday, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg alleged that the FBI warned the company of a “dump” of Russian propaganda prior to the New York Post publishing a story that included damaging information on then-candidate Joe Biden from his son Hunter Biden’s laptop.

“The FBI basically came to us… and said, ‘Hey, just so you know, you should be on high alert. We thought there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election and we have noticed that, basically there’s about to be some kind of dump that’s similar to that. So, just be vigilant,'” the social media tycoon told host, Joe Rogan (see Spotify timestamp 1:47:40).

Zuckerberg went on to contrast his company’s policy with that of Twitter, which banned sharing the story outright. “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,” he said.

“The distribution on Facebook was decreased, but people were still allowed to share it,” he continued.

“The ranking in newsfeed was a little bit less,” Zuckerberg continued. “Fewer people saw it than they would have otherwise.”
