Stephen Hayes, editor and CEO of the Never Trump The Dispatch website, told Fox News viewers Monday night that his post, which Big Tech uses to censor content, including pro-life posts, failed seen enough evidence on the history of the Hunter Biden laptop. to “verify” it.
“We didn’t do a direct fact-check on Hunter Biden’s story in part because there wasn’t enough information in those early days to do a definitive fact-check,” Hayes told about the story that Big Tech strangled and corrupt media ignored in the weeks leading up to the crucial 2020 presidential election. “It’s part of the role of fact-checkers, to determine what is fact in order to correct the facts rather than trying to correct opinion. “
Hayes also touted his post for joining Big Tech’s censorship campaigns and even criticized Facebook for not silencing the rhetoric enough, saying it allowed “hateful content and misinformation content to go viral.”
“The Dispatch is part of this fact-checking program. We think we’re doing good on this fact-checking program, but if Facebook prefers or tweaks an algorithm to allow hateful content and disinformation content to go viral at the same time, well, that’s going to overwhelm. the efforts of people who are trying to do a good job to fix that, ”said Hayes.
Just weeks before the November election, the New York Post reported that a laptop containing evidence implicating then-presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son for engaging in shady business relationships overseas surfaced after being dumped by Hunter Biden in a computer repair shop. Documents from the Delaware store appear to show a signed receipt from son Biden for the repairs. Emails, texts and videos from the laptop even point to a “pay-to-play scandal” involving the current president.
These reports, however, have been censored by big tech companies like Facebook and Twitter who rely on “fact checkers” to do their bidding. Democrats, the Biden family, and corrupt corporate media also ignored the evidence and claimed it was nothing but nothing planted by the Russians.
Dispatch editor-in-chief Jonah Goldberg was one of many on the left and in the corrupt media to claim shortly before the 2020 presidential election that Hunter Biden’s story was Russian disinformation.
Would you believe the story of the computer repair shop? As at face value?

Josh, you’re a political agent, aren’t you? I’m just trying to upgrade. (By the way, I think it’s worth covering. I just think you guys – as political operatives – wildly oversell it while playing the good journalism card).
