Detroit News Endorses Republican John James for Senate
2020-10-24
[PJMEDIA] On Thursday, The bankrupt, increasingly impoverished, reliably Democrat, Detroit
... ruled by Democrats since 1962. A city whose Golden Age included the Purple Gang...
News endorsed Republican John James over incumbent Democrat Gary Peters for U.S. Senate.

"It is an honor to have the endorsement of one of Michigan’s most prestigious and well-read publications," James said in response to the endorsement. "Our state and nation are currently at a crossroads, and Michigan has the choice between a combat veteran or a career politician, a war fighter or a gaslighter. It’s time for Michigan to have effective leadership in the Senate where no voice will be left out."

It appears that Twitter isn’t too happy about this endorsement and is warning users who attempt to share it that headlines "don’t tell the full story." The platform suggests that users read the article before they retweet it.

Here’s a screenshot of the warning that appears when you attempt to retweet the article.

This bizarre warning on a political endorsement comes a week after Twitter blocked users from sharing the New York Post bombshell report about Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Why is Twitter placing an unnecessary warning on the story? Is it because John James, an African American Republican, is polling well in the race and could win, and his victory could decide which party will control the Senate?

I can’t help but wonder.

The endorsement itself could not have been more glowing.

"Michigan would gain increased influence and better representation for its people in the U.S. Senate by electing John James," The Detroit News editorial board wrote. "It would also send to the Senate a natural leader who could well become one of the chamber’s most powerful members."
