By Breitbart. The FBI warned Facebook of an imminent “dump” of “Russian propaganda” shortly before the Hunter Biden “laptop from hell” story broke, according to Facebook’s founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
Zuckerberg revealed the bombshell news on his first appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience, which was published today, revealing the FBI’s interference in the 2020 election.

“The FBI, I think basically came to us — some folks on our team and was like, ‘Hey, um, just so you know, like, you should be on high alert. There was the — we thought that there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election. We have it on notice that basically there’s about to be some kind of dump of — that’s similar to that. So just be vigilant.’”
Shortly afterwards, the New York Post published its first article about Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell.” The story was immediately shut down by Twitter, while Facebook reduced its distribution — meaning it appeared on fewer people’s newsfeeds to a “meaningful” degree, according to Zuckerberg.
“We just kind of thought, Hey look, if the FBI, which, you know, I still view as a legitimate institution in this country, it’s a very professional law enforcement,” Zuckerberg told Rogan. “They come to us and tell us that we need to be on guard about something. Then I wanna take that seriously.” (Read more from “ZUCKERBERG BOMBSHELL: Facebook Restricted Hunter Laptop Story at FBI’s Request; Suggests Feds Intervened in Election on Behalf of Biden (VIDEO)” HERE)
Mark Zuckerberg Tells Joe Rogan FBI Warned Facebook of ‘Russian Propaganda’ Before Hunter Biden Laptop Story
By Fox News. . .Zuckerberg insisted that Facebook users were “still allowed to share” the Post’s reporting on the Hunter Biden laptop even as their “third-party fact-checking program” was looking into whether it was misinformation, but acknowledged that the “ranking in [the] news feed was a little bit less” and that “fewer people saw it than would’ve otherwise.”
“By what percentage?” Rogan asked.
“I don’t know off the top of my head, but it’s- it’s meaningful,” Zuckerberg responded. “But we weren’t sort of as black and white about it as Twitter. We just kind of thought hey look, if the FBI, which I still view is a legitimate institution in this country, it’s a very professional law enforcement- they come to us and tell us that we need to be on guard about something then I want to take that seriously.” . . .
When asked if there was any “regret” about suppressing a story that turned out be factual, Zuckerberg replied, “Yeah, yeah. I mean, it sucks.”
However, he went on to defend Facebook’s practices, telling Rogan its process was “pretty reasonable” since his platform still allowed the New York Post articles to be distributed rather than the complete blackout that Twitter enforced.
