    Facebook-owned Instagram on Thursday announced it will temporarily remove the “Recent” tab from hashtag pages in an effort to reduce the spread of misinformation in the run-up to the Nov. 3 U.S. election. “We’re doing this to reduce the real-time spread of potentially harmful content that could pop up around the election,” the social network said in a tweet. When people tap on or search for a hashtag on Instagram, the app shows them top results and recent results. The recent tab shows the latest content labeled with that hashtag, regardless of whether it’s relevant to the topic.

    Twitter locked the account of CPB Commissioner Mark Morgan over a post that touted the progress and effectiveness of the wall on the southern border. The tweet claimed that “walls work” and that “every mile helps us stop gang members, murderers, sexual predators and drugs from entering our country,” according to a screenshot provided to The Federalist. Twitter said Morgan violated the company’s rules against “hateful conduct.” “You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease,” Twitter’s message...

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey were unable to think of any liberal person or entity that has been censored by either platform during Wednesday’s Senate hearing on big tech censorship. Republican Utah Sen. Mike Lee asked Zuckerberg and Dorsey to name “one high-profile person or entity from a liberal ideology” that was barred off either platform. However, neither CEO was able to think of someone on the spot. “I can get you a list of some more of this but there are certainly many examples that your Democratic colleagues object to when … a fact-checker might...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz excoriated Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Wednesday over his company’s flagrant censorship against conservatives. Some background Dorsey and his company have come under fire over the past months for openly censoring conservatives and conservative topics on the platform, including labeling or removing multiple posts from President Trump and his campaign the company decided were in violation of its rules. Dorsey has himself been quite open about his progressive viewpoints. Back in 2018, Dorsey shared with his nearly 5 million followers on Twitter a Medium article that essentially called for the ostracizing of Republicans and their supporters because...

    A former Hunter Biden business partner said Tuesday he was warned against going public with information about their business dealings when another ex-partner told him: “You’re just going to bury all of us.” During an appearance on Fox News, Tony Bobulinski said he spoke with former partner Rob Walker to demand that Walker get US Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to retract his claim that The Post’s recent reporting on Hunter Biden’s emails was part of a Russian-orchestrated “smear on Joe Biden.” Host Tucker Carlson then played a snippet of an audio recording that Bobulinski said was part of the phone...

    CNN this week accused conservatives of trying to ruin Big Tech’s reputation ahead of the election but failed to mention Facebook and Twitter’s censorship of the bombshell New York Post report about Hunter Biden. The CNN story: The piece, penned by CNN’s Brian Fung, suggests that there is a collective effort on the side of conservative to “discredit social media platforms.” He also notes the timing of the criticism, asserting that it escalated shortly before the presidential election. “A right-wing offensive is underway to discredit social media companies just days before the election,” Fund declared. “What began as complaints about...

"By the way, I have a transition from the oil industry, yes," Biden said during the presidential debate in Nashville, Tennessee.

    A woman supporting Joe Biden was blasted on social media for saying she forced her dying father to vote for him. A video posted to Twitter on Sunday shows the woman holding up cards explaining how she got her father, apparently a lifelong Republican, to change his mind. “My 55-year-old conservative dad has never voted Democrat in his LIFE,” the cards said. “He’s dying of Aplastic Anemia. We’ve had some intense exchanges about him voting for Trump this year, which has been painful, since we’ll almost certainly lose him in the next few weeks/months.”

    Seattle has had a rough go of it for 2020, and that’s not even taking into consideration the pandemic. Liberals have overtaken the city. First, they had to deal with CHAZ, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. Now, they’re dealing with radical leftist leaders who want to allow the criminals to rule while punishing the law-abiding citizens. Seattle officers are done with it all – and many are retiring years before anticipated just to distance themselves from the stupidity. While they could turn in their paperwork and go silently, they’re standing up to their oppressors. They’re being bold and honest in...

    President Trump needed a strong debate performance to have any hope of slowing Joe Biden's momentum in the closing days of the 2020 campaign. And a strong debate performance is what he delivered. Trump didn't interrupt Biden or moderator Kristen Welker of NBC News. There was considerably less shouting than at the first debate. You could actually understand what was going on. And Trump was on message. He contrasted his record, policies, and outsider persona with Biden's. He argued for coping with the pandemic while reopening the economy and resuming in-person schooling. Perhaps most important, he defined Biden as a...

    Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson revealed a letter from CNN host Chris Cuomo’s apartment building manager that called out the CNN journalist for refusing to wear a face-covering in the building in violation of state mask requirements.

Andrew Cuomo, strongly advocating that people wear masks, in one video even professing that he wears a mask “for you as much as I do it for me.”

    A small Christian school in Oregon is suing Democratic Oregon Gov. Kate Brown and other Oregon officials after claiming the state is discriminating against private and religious schools by keeping them locked down while allowing public schools to reopen. The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) filed a lawsuit Friday on behalf of Hermiston Christian School, a K-12 school in Hermiston, Oregon, which has a student body of 51. The lawsuit reads in part: “After 41 years of faithful service, Hermiston Christian School (‘HCS’) could be forced to shut its doors for good unless the Court stops an obvious case of discrimination:...

    Ben Shapiro put out a video explaining why he’s voting for Trump this year after not having voted for him in 2016. In the middle of a litany of policy successes, he said, “He’s resisted using the federal government to control everybody’s life during COVID. That’s a big thing. This is the biggest government power grab during my lifetime, and Trump refused to do it.” Under immense pressure by the media and other Democratic operatives, at a time when nearly all global leaders were using the pandemic as an excuse to seize greater control, Trump did not.

Kamala Harris (D-CA), Joe Biden’s running mate, after she spoke with the cast of “Avengers.” Karl’s tweet criticized the California Democrat for making the time to speak to the actors but avoiding the media. “At a fundraiser tonight, @KamalaHarris played trivia and answered questions from the cast of The Avengers. And with that, the Democratic VP nominee has now taken more questions from cast of The Avengers than from the traveling press covering her campaign,” he wrote.

    Facebook and Twitter's frantic attempts to stop the spread of the New York Post's Hunter Biden story didn't prevent the article from becoming the top story about the election on those platforms last week, according to data from NewsWhip. Why it matters: The data shows that even swift, aggressive content suppression may not be swift or aggressive enough to keep down a story with as much White House backing and partisan fuel as this one. By the numbers: The Post's story generated 2.59m interactions (likes, comments, shares) on Facebook and Twitter last week — more than double the next biggest...
