Why the Uproar?

In the comments to the post before last, a question was asked that about the recent story regarding Biden's E-Mails. It's a question I've seen asked rather a LOT. 

 What I really don't get is why everyone is freaking out about this. Everyone has KNOWN this. 

Indeed the story is not new, and was reasonably well sourced.  But there are solid reasons that this story is causing so much distress on both sides of the aisle right now. 

A: The left has been denying the story about VP Biden extorting Ukrania on behalf of his son... but the New York Post article appears to be a smoking gun that not only refutes the denials, but indicates that Biden specifically, and deliberately lied before Congress when questioned about the matter. 

B: However, the big reason that this "news" is NEWS is the reaction of Facebook, Twitter and other venues outright banning the story.  This is the most blatant and widespread 'Ministry of Truth' crap we've ever seen in the U.S. The media are killing a story that exposes a politician they support. They are cancelling the social-media-accounts (ability to be heard) of anyone who dares LINK to the story on their platforms, and the New York Post's presence on popular social media sites has ended...presumably until they retract. So the Patricians of PaloAlto have their own 50 cent army, the implications of which are terrifying. Note too that Twitter even shut down the president's campaign Twitter feed, an action which is, in effect, a huge-in-kind contribution to the Biden campaign. 

C: This story is troubling even to those not on the right,  and confirms that what we on the right have been saying about media bias for 35 years is true and actually more scary than even we imagined. 

D: Those pictures of Hunter in the tub with the crackpipe, while pathetic,  are priceless.
