I don’t think either side is sure what to do with this story. I have noticed that most media sources have relegated the story to their second string reporters / anchors. I think both sides want to be able to distance their headline reporters from the story until it has been proven to be solid or a fabrication. CNN is completely ignoring it while fox is running with it. Then to have tech companies like “Facebook and Twitter” completely censor the story feels like a complete betrayal of free speech. Of course they are private companies, but the path they are charting is going to have serious consequences. It’s they kind of decision that ultimately leads to platform shifts. I have also noticed search engines messing around with the story as well.
Every American should be intolerant of the suppression of information. I think this article is the most balanced I have seen on the subject.
