Hunter Biden: The Media Cover-Up
The New York Times is admitting that the Hunter Biden laptop and the exposé of his emails are authentic. This is a little head-spinning so let’s break it down.
Hunter Biden is the son of President Biden. In the weeks before the 2020 Presidential election, Trump ally Rudy Giuliani claimed to have records from Biden’s laptop showing inappropriate connections to foreign governments, including Ukraine. In the wake of that revelation, the media began to call these emails a Russian smear campaign. Twitter and Facebook started blocking users from sharing or discussing this story. The media fell in line, reporting that it was Russian disinformation.
Giuliani at the time was not helpful, acting increasingly unhinged. It made the story seem so cooked and crooked.
Only now The New York Times admits that the emails were authenticated by the recipients and that their investigation confirms that the laptop was recovered from a Delaware repair shop. This was corroborated by people close to the ongoing FBI investigation about Biden’s foreign affairs. (Sidenote: The FBI is investigating Hunter Biden.)
The New York Times never actually reported that the story was Russian disinformation but it did not verify the story either. Many other media outlets reported that it was disinformation and have not retracted that line.
This is wrong. The media fell in line to suppress a story that would look bad for candidate Joe Biden, manipulating voters away from a story they had the right to know. The mainstream media and social media owe us an explanation that we are unlikely to get.
