Politico wrote a bizarre article Tuesday in which it defended North Korea from Tweets written by President Donald J. Trump.
“Trump regularly uses Twitter to heap abuse on his perceived enemies and at times raise the specter of violence, such as when he tweeted last year that if North Korean leaders continued with their rhetoric at the time, ‘they won’t be around much longer!’ Critics say the tweets violate Twitter’s terms of service and warrant punitive action,” Politico said.
The odd defense of the murderous dictatorial regime in North Korea was published in the context of Politico’s report that even the President is not immune from being booted from the platform, according to Twitter legal and policy chief Vijaya Gadde and CEO Jack Dorsey.
“We have to balance it with the context that it’s in,” Dorsey said according to Politico. “So my role is to ask questions and make sure we’re being impartial, and we’re upholding consistently our terms of service, including public interest.”
Politico reported that a Trump Tweet directed at the Iranian government was over the line, and that it “prompted calls for his removal from the platform.”
“NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE,” Trump said in a July Tweet directed at Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
The larger context of the debate is the ongoing censorship of conservative viewpoints by leftist-owned tech giants in Silicon Valley like Facebook, Google and Twitter.
Dorsey is set to testify Wednesday before the House Energy and Commerce committee after an internet backlash over the censorship of conservative ideas on his platform. He was reluctant to testify, but gave in when the committee raised the possibility of a subpoena.

President Trump Takes Down Chinese State Media Reporter: “Who Do You Work For, China?”
The reporter works for a company all-but controlled by the Chinese government.
President Donald Trump correctly questioned if a reporter promoting the supposed efforts of Chinese companies to provide needed coronavirus supplies was working for a Chinese-government controlled media company at Monday’s press conference.
Youyou Wang asked a question that was phrased as more of a statement, describing the humanitarian efforts of Chinese companies Huawei and Alibaba as a potential motive for the United States to rescind trade restrictions on China in the wake of the epidemic.

“Who are you working for, China? Do you work for China, or do you work for a newspaper? Who are you with?”
Youyou Wang stated that she works for a privately owned media company, but scrutiny of Hong Kong Phoenix TV reveals that it’s closely linked to the Chinese government. According to The National Pulse’s Raheem Kassam, 37.1% of the company’s parent, Phoenix Satellite Holdings, is owned by a former Colonel for China’s state propaganda TV channel. Another 20% of the company is owned by Extra Step Investments Limited, which is a subsidiary of a Chinese government-owned company called China Mobile.

Mainstream media operatives immediately pivoted to paint Trump’s wholly reasonable inquiry to the nature of Wang’s media company as somehow prejudiced, claiming that it was inappropriate that Trump question the motives of someone who was trying to defend China’s major corporations and government in the midst of the pandemic.
His suspicions appear to have been validated, considering no more than 65% of the company is owned by individuals and entities with demonstrable connections to the Chinese government. Many of China’s nominally ‘private’ companies are essentially owned by the nation’s authoritarian government and work tirelessly to advance its interests.
