With the Hunter Biden Expose, Suppression is a Bigger Scandal Than The Actual Story

From Matt Taibbi:

Unprecedented efforts to squelch information about a New York Post story may prove to be more dangerous corruption than whatever Hunter Biden did with a crooked Ukrainian energy company. 
The incredible decision by Twitter and Facebook to block access to a New York Post story about a cache of emails reportedly belonging to Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s son Hunter, with Twitter going so far as to lock the 200 year-old newspaper out of its own account for over a week, continues to be a major underreported scandal. The hypocrisy is mind-boggling. 
Imagine the reaction if that same set of facts involved the New York Times and any of its multitudinous unverifiable “exposes” from the last half-decade: from the similarly-leaked “black ledger” story implicating Paul Manafort, to its later-debunked “repeated contacts with Russian intelligence” story, to its mountain of articles about the far more dubious Steele dossier. Internet platforms for years have balked at intervening at many other sensational “unverified” stories, including ones called into question in very short order:

The following sequence of tweets suggest a plausible tale:
1. I've been looking at photos of the senile guy's son.
The newly released photos.
He exposed his father deliberately.
No doubt in my mind.
Here you go. Look at the son's face. It tells the whole story


2. The son has steadily documented his self-destruction.
He seeks oblivion
Since he can't escape what was done to him and what he chose to do, he's bringing down the whole rotten structure.
I recommnd the Danish movie "The Celebration"


3. It's about an all-consuming father and his enablers.
And a ruined son who must decide if he wants to raise a stink or not.
