Facebook has called on its fact-checkers to probe an article from the New York Post, and in the meantime it has already reduced its distribution across the platform. (Facebook's Policy Communications Director Andy Stone said in a tweet that reducing distribution is "standard process ... pending fact-checker review.")  The article reveals a leaked exchange between Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and a Ukrainian business executive, in which the executive thanks the former-VP's son for introducing him to his father less than a year before then-VP Joe Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who was investigating the executive's company. The article presents evidence of a damning link between Joe Biden, his connection with Ukrainian oligarchs and the political influence he exerted as vice president in favor of those connections.
