Facebook Policy Communications Director Andy Stone admitted via Twitter this morning that the Zuckerberg-run social media outlet was limiting distribution of the latest bombshell scoop about Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son and both mens’ links to foreign lobbying operations.
The news first broke in the New York Post and has been trending all morning on social media platforms.
Now, Stone – who has worked for four separate Democratic Party individuals or organizations over his career – admits Facebook is interfering in the U.S. election by limiting the distribution of the story.
He wrote on Twitter:
“While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want be clear that this story is eligible to be fact checked by Facebook’s third-party fact checking partners. In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform.”

Facebook “fact checkers” are notoriously left-wing, just like Andy Stone himself. Their agencies such as “Lead Stories” are staffed predominantly by former CNN staff, and people who exclusively donate to Democrats, as The National Pulse exposed earlier this year.
Even Facebook’s Oversight Board is 95% anti-Trump, and three-quarters are non-Americans. Yet this is the only entity within the Facebook company that can overrule CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
