The mainstream media changed tune on Hunter Biden’s laptop as the investigation inches closer to an indictment. However, the MSM makes a deliberate effort to dissociate Joe Biden from Hunters’ misadventures.
The laptop is currently under the FBI and could serve as crucial evidence for money laundering and tax evasion allegations being investigated.
The Washington Post reported that its security researchers verified about 22,000 emails from Biden’s laptop using cryptographic signatures from Google and other sources.
WAPO’s analysis was carried out by Johns Hopkins University security researcher Matt Green and former National Security Agency forensic expert Jake Williams.
The outlet had initially claimed that the emails could not be verified and were likely part of a “broader Russian disinformation campaign.”
Facebook and Twitter also restricted posts on Hunter Biden’s laptop using Washington Post’s fact-checking. Similarly, over 50 former intelligence officials backed the Russian disinformation narrative in a massive coverup.
Similarly, The New York Times also acknowledged emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop while discussing how he had paid off a significant amount of tax owed.
“Those emails were obtained by The New York Times from a cache of files that appears to have come from a laptop abandoned by Mr. Biden in a Delaware repair shop,” The Times wrote.
Some of the emails related to the Chinese Communist Party-backed CEFC China Energy which allegedly paid Biden about $5 million.
Similarly, Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings allegedly paid the young Biden about $1 million per year. Former President Donald Trump’s calls to investigate young Biden on these questionable dealings led to his impeachment.
Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee chair US Sen. Ron Johnson (R – WI) described the Times’ acknowledgment of Hunter’s laptop as surprising during an appearance on WABC.
“I am just amazed that the New York Times just now came to the conclusion that the Hunter Biden laptop was genuine,” he said.
After New York Post reported on the young Biden’s laptop, Vox blasted Conservative news outlets for running with the story arguing that “Careful investigative journalists would take some time to ascertain what actually happened here,” something Vox itself never did. The outlet, however, ran with the mainstream narrative and downplayed the incident.
Meanwhile, Vox has “revisited” Biden’s laptop story and admitted that it was not a Russian disinformation campaign.
The outlet, however, claims that “The Times only vouched for certain emails they’d authenticated,” which was a whopping 22,000 according to WaPo, another journalistic failure by Vox.
The timing of the mainstream media’s change in tune on Hunter Biden’s laptop is significant. Multiple witnesses, including federal investigators, will testify in the coming weeks about Hunter’s questionable dealings with foreign governments, including our traditional adversaries such as China, when his father was the Vice President.
