KRISTINE FRAZAO (SINCLAIR  NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT): When GOP lawmakers tried to share the New York Post’s Hunter Biden story on Twitter, this is the message they got: “Tweet not sent.” Facebook, also limiting the spread of the story on its site, prompting responses like this: 


SEN. JOSH HAWLEY (R-MO): An attempt to rig an election, which is what we’re seeing here by monopolies, is unprecedented in American history.

SEN TED CRUZ (R-TX): Twitter and Facebook and big tech billionaires don’t get to censor political speech and actively interfere in the election.


FRAZAO: But those in charge of those companies say they do, that private companies get to play by their own rules. Twitter responding that the New York Post story, which included personal and information, violates its rules and went against their hacked materials policy, which prohibits the distribution of content obtained without authorization, that the company doesn't want to incentivize hacking.
