Facebook and Twitter’s decision to prevent users from sharing a series of New York Post bombings investigating Hunter Biden’s overseas operations “really seems like a blow to Big Brother,” said Chris Wallace , Host of “Fox News Sunday”, opposite the podcast “Fox News Rundown” Friday.
“I have a real problem with that. I think you’re either in or out,” Wallace said. “And when I say that, it’s either the Wild West and you post everything – and I can understand the concern about what happened to Russian disinformation in 201
“But to just forbid it and say, ‘Nobody is allowed to discuss or post this story’ – which, as you know, is out there and you can’t put the ghost back in the bottle, it was the front page of New York Post – really seems like a blow to Big Brother to me. “
On Wednesday, the newspaper reported that it had received emails from a laptop owned by Hunter Biden. According to an email, Biden introduced his father, Joe Biden, then Vice President of the United States, an executive at Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings. Joe Biden has repeatedly denied speaking to him about Hunter’s overseas business interests, and his campaign has denied any formal meeting with the executive branch.

Wallace said Friday that these movements “backfired” because … not only was a story made about the story, but a story about how big it was [social] Media giants are. “
The Fox News Sunday host described the Post’s report as “very sketchy.”

“Not to say it’s not true,” he added, “but it seems to me that a lot of research is needed. The guy who ran the computer store is supposedly legally blind, not sure who ever got in with the computers. He says that. ” Though history is constantly changing, that he gave it to the FBI last December. But you know they don’t confirm that.
“Now he says he gave it to Rudy Giuliani’s attorney,” Wallace continued. “Rudy Giuliani is not the most independent source for all of these things. I think it’s totally worth researching, but I’m not sure I would even start at this point.”
