âPirated materialsâ. “Russian disinformation.” âUnfounded. “
A year ago, The Post revealed that Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop bore proof that he was selling influence while his father was vice president – and his now president dad knew it. . Yet most other media treated the story itself as scandal, reporting only vague claims that sought to undermine it rather than rushing (as they would have under the last president) to do it. advance themselves.
And Twitter and Facebook rushed to block it, stifling vital information even as America voted.
None of them learned a lesson except that it worked: Big Tech and Big Media have succeeded, to the detriment of our democracy.
In short: they got away with it. All. From the Bidens, to social media companies, to the press.
Although the media has (for the most part) stopped pretending that we were wrong, most of the media still does not mention these revelations – even in stories where they are highly relevant, like the ongoing art exhibition. Hunter, who seems like a blatant effort to solicit funds from those hoping to win the president’s goodwill.
Again: they had no decent justification for their partisan censorship. Neither Biden ever disputed a sentence in The Post’s report.
It’s not our scoop that, at the request of his son, then-veep Joe Biden met with Vadym Pozharskyi, an advisor to Ukrainian energy company Burisma, who hired Hunter as a well-paid board member of administration, despite his lack of experience in energy and Eastern Europe.
Nor did emails from Hunter’s laptop suggest that Dad would benefit from a deal with a state-linked Chinese company: the stock split included “10 owned by H for the big guy” – which the Hunter’s ex-partner Tony Bobulinski confirmed, Joe meant.
Bobulinsky has gone public because countless Big Media organizations have branded The Post’s reports as “Russian disinformation.” He knew it wasn’t true and authenticated the emails publicly.
But that was only the second excuse they tried. The first is the one Twitter used to justify blocking users from sharing the story as well as locking The Post’s account for weeks on end, namely the claim that we used âpirated materialâ. No, our report was about how it all came from a laptop that Hunter had simply left in a repair shop, where the owner got all rights to the abandoned computer, files and everything. Biden also did not accuse The Post of hacking. And Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted in a congressional hearing that censoring the story was a “total mistake.”
But he only made this admission in March, months after the election.
The data shows that in the days following our October 2020 report, research on how to modify an early vote has increased. Even though social media tried to bury the story – which taxpayer-funded NPR said was not worth reporting and called “discredited” – some readers got the good.
The Post’s Miranda Devine detailed many other shocking stories from the laptop, with texts suggesting Joe paid for Hunter’s drug-fueled stay in Los Angeles that involved the Secret Service. And still the Bidens deny nothing, while the other media remain silent.
A point of sale, Politico, finally admits that we had the goods because his own reporter, Ben Schreckinger, got “independent” confirmation from some of the emails. Yet nearly a year after it had already been confirmed by people like Bobulinski, the New York Times still called our reporting “unfounded” – though hours later it quietly deleted that word from his article.
Big Tech has never suffered from its censorship and continues to censor. On Monday, for example, Google suspended the American Principles Project’s YouTube account. on a video claiming that “Big Pharma and the medical community benefit from transgender people.”
The continued blackout suppresses discussion of vital questions, such as: Did Hunter’s influence peddling affect not only Joe’s work as a veep, but his presidency? Why is prez so reluctant to investigate the origins of COVID? Hunter still hasn’t, as promised, sold his stake in the Beijing-related company.
Big Media and Big Tech don’t want you to ask such questions. We will continue to ask them. They shouldn’t be allowed to get away with it again.
