The New York Post exposes the New York Times as the partisan rag every sentient being knows it is in the editorial “Now that Joe Biden’s president, The Times finally admits: Hunter’s laptop is real.” The exposition is detailed and brutal. It is newsworthy, It is timely. The editorial concludes:
How did The Times “authenticate” the laptop? It doesn’t say. Unlike The Post’s reporting, which detailed exactly how we got the files and where they came from, The Times does a hand wave to anonymous sources. No facts have changed since fall 2020. They knew the laptop was real from the start. They just didn’t want to say so.
There’s never any shame with these 180s. Sorry that we wrote a “fact check” that turned out to be bull! Sorry we wrote a piece claiming something wasn’t a story and you were stupid for thinking so!
Twitter banned us for supposedly publishing “hacked materials” that weren’t hacked. The company’s CEO apologized, but by that point they had accomplished what they wanted. Like The Times, they cast enough doubt to avoid making their preferred candidate look bad.
Readers of The Times have discovered in March 2022 that Hunter Biden pursued business deals in Europe and Asia, and may have leveraged his father’s position as vice president to do it. Hunter also may not have properly registered with the government nor declared all his income. All legitimate topics of discussion about a presidential candidate’s family, no?
Readers of The Post have known this since October 2020. We also have a much better sports section. We’ve authenticated it.
The editors show in their conclusion that they haven’t lost their sense of humor. I commend the editorial to your attention.
