‘It will take 15 seconds’: CNN’s Jake Tapper tells New York Post to bend the knee over Twitter lockout

Twitter BLOCKS sharing links to NYPost’s Hunter Biden emails story, invoking ‘HACKED MATERIALS’ policy for first time ever

Since then, a forensics expert has verified the email that appeared in the story as authentic, and additional documents and witness testimonies have appeared to corroborate the initial claims about Hunter Biden’s business dealings – but Twitter has refused to unlock the Post’s account. 

Earlier this week, Dorsey blamed the Post for the situation, telling the Senate that it’s up to the paper to remove the tweet – even though it was originally banned “in error” – at which point it would be unlocked and free to tweet the exact same story again.

The Post “COULD end this standoff by deleting the tweets that broke the rules (thus unlocking its account) then tweet them out again,” Tapper tweeted on Friday, echoing Dorsey’s argument.

“I asked a Twitter exec if this was possible, he said yes and it would end the whole thing. Probably take 15 seconds,” he added. While acknowledging that Twitter “could end this immediately as well, given that these rules are no longer rules,” the CNN anchor said he was “just suggesting a possible way to end this.”

Sohrab Ahmari, the Post’s op-ed editor, replied that they heard Dorsey perfectly fine the first time, “through his Rasputin/hobo beard,” but that their reporting was never based on “hacked material” and therefore never violated the Twitter rules. 

“We have more honor and principle than others, I suppose,” tweeted Ahmari.

As a number of journalists have pointed out since Wednesday’s Big Tech hearing, deleting the tweet would amount to an admission of wrongdoing. While multiple other people locked out of Twitter for sharing the story have bowed under pressure and deleted their tweets in order to get their accounts back, the Post editors appear to have decided that doing so would destroy their credibility.

“If Twitter can get NYP to bend [the] knee, they will use that against them should Post seek legal recourse,” Mollie Hemingway of the Federalist pointed out, saying the demand for deletion was “for power and legal reasons.”

Founded by Alexander Hamilton in 1801, the New York Post is the fourth-largest newspaper in the US and the oldest published daily. After it was censored over the Biden story, it endorsed President Donald Trump for re-election.
