According to Zuckerberg's assertion on Joe Rogan. 

In a recent podcast interview with Joe Rogan, Mark Zuckerberg conceded that Facebook had curbed the explosive Hunter Biden laptop story in advance of the 2020 election. 

because the FBI had issued a "Russian propaganda" warning. Meta's CEO made this shocking admission. 

The FBI stated that it "habitually notifies U.S. private sector entities. 

including social media suppliers, of potential danger knowledge so that they can decide how to better defend against threats," following the publication of the episode on Thursday. 

In order to maintain the public aware of potential threats, the FBI will continue to work closely with partners from the federal, state, local, and private sectors. 

.However, the FBI cannot order businesses to act on information received, the agency said.

Later on Friday night, Meta claimed that the Hunter Biden laptop story contained no fresh information.
