Russell Brand is slamming the way both mainstream media and social media companies suppressed The Post’s bombshell reporting on Hunter Biden just before the 2020 election — saying media gatekeepers “conspired to keep information away from you because it was not convenient to their agenda.”
Brand, host of the “Under The Skin” podcast, made the comments while speaking to investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald, his guest for that episode.
“I’m not a pro-Republican person,” the comedian began by saying, “I don’t see myself that way. I don’t see myself as conservative.”
But Brand said he also did not align himself with the liberal “media establishments.”

“For me, revelations that there are financial connections between energy companies in … Ukraine, energy companies in China, and the Biden family are troubling. That should be public knowledge. And it’s even more troubling that Twitter, and Facebook and the media at large deliberately kept it out of the news because they didn’t want it to influence the election,” Brand continued.
The host went on to ask, “What is democracy, then? It suggests to me that democracy is, ‘We want you to vote for this person. We don’t want you to vote for that person.’”
“As I’ve said, Donald Trump, you know, I don’t think Donald Trump’s the answer, but I’m sad to realize that I can no longer even claim to believe Joe Biden or the Democratic Party might be the answer, because look at how they behave. And look at the relationships between media, social media, and that party. They conspired to keep information away from you because it was not convenient to their agenda.”
