Nets Ignore FBI’s Defiant Statement Calling Conservatives Conspiracy Theorists

Political News

On Wednesday afternoon, the FBI released a defiant statement which denied any wrongdoing that was detailed in the latest Twitter Files which were made public this week by journalist Michael Shellenberger, who revealed that the FBI and Twitter colluded to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story. In the obnoxious statement, the FBI proved the contempt they have for average Americans concerned with tyrannical Big Tech censorship by calling them “conspiracy theorists.” 

As they have with the Twitter Files, the three evening news broadcasts (ABC’s World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, & NBC Nightly News) ignored the FBI’s nasty statement. Instead, the three networks obsessed over local weather reports and former President Donald Trump’s taxes. 

During Fox News Channel’s Special Report, correspondent Lucas Tomlinson reported how “FBI officials confirm the agency paid Twitter nearly $3.5 million. Money critics say was used to help suppress information, including The New York Post Hunter Biden laptop story.”

Yet the FBI told Fox News the money was “part of routine reimbursements for Twitter complying with standard legal requests.”

As part of the statement to Fox News, the FBI sneered:

The correspondence between the FBI and Twitter show nothing more than examples of our traditional, long-standing and ongoing federal government and private sector engagements. It is unfortunate that conspiracy theorists and others are feeding the American public misinformation with the sole purpose of attempting to discredit the agency. 

In an interview with incoming House Oversight Committee Chairman Jim Comer, Tomlinson was told that the best way to “get the FBI in front of the committee really quickly is say we’re not giving you a penny until you all come down here and explain to us what this task force was, why you told Twitter to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story when you knew darn well it was true.”

“FBI officials say they did not provide Twitter with any specific instructions or details regarding the Hunter Biden laptop story,” Tomlinson ended by noting.

This bias by omission by the three networks was made possible by Cadillac on ABC, Prevagen on CBS, & Liberty Mutual on NBC. Their information is linked.
