It’s becoming apparent that various media outlets are going to allow themselves to slowly catch up to a story that in 2020 and beyond they wanted everybody to believe was “Russian disinformation.” Today the Washington Post joined the party:
The Post found that financial documents on the copy of Hunter Biden’s purported laptop match documents and information found in other records, including newly disclosed bank documents obtained by Sen. Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, a senior Republican on the Senate Finance and Judiciary committees.
The potential energy projects Hunter Biden discussed with CEFC never came to fruition.
Nonetheless, accounts linked to Hunter Biden received at least $3.79 million in payments from CEFC through consulting contracts, according to bank records and joint agreements reviewed by The Post.
The story is basically “how the Washington Post analyzed Hunter Biden’s laptop”:
NEW: Thousands of emails purportedly from the laptop computer of Hunter Biden are authentic communications that can be verified through cryptographic signatures from technology companies.

Sadly, that sums it all up perfectly. “Journalism” is tainted at best and dead at worst.
That’s the same journalistic technique the media used with COVID.
