The case can be made that the Silicon Valley giants greatly influenced the outcome of the presidential election. This goes well beyond the companies’ (and their employees) substantial contributions to Democratic campaigns. I am referring to their ability to suppress content unfavorable to their preferred candidates and to inflate (and distort) negative coverage of those they oppose.This was never more apparent than the concerted effort by Twitter and Facebook in mid-October to block the New York Post’s explosive reporting that revealed damning emails found on the laptop of Democrat Joe Biden’s son. (Hunter Biden had left the laptop at a computer repair shop and forgotten to pick it up.) The emails supported allegations that he and his family members had profited handsomely from a foreign influence-peddling scheme.
