The New York Post, without all these sordid details and photographs, reported the story in that same month before the election. But in the face of widespread denial, the story got little coverage. It is only now almost two years later, that the New York Timesconfirms that the Post’s reporting on the laptop was accurate.
A comprehensive report about the ongoing federal probe into Hunter Biden’s tax filings published by the New York Times on Wednesday night confirmed the existence of the first son’s infamous laptop.
The laptop’s hard drive contained a trove of emails, text messages, photos and financial documents between Hunter Biden, his family and business associates — detailing how the president’s son used his political leverage in his overseas business dealings.
The Hunter Biden laptop lack of story in the mainstream media is yet another illustration of its devotion to the party line, not the truth. From Daniel McAdams at lewrockwell.com:
Few who pay attention should be shocked, but for those who still look to the “newspaper of record” to be the newspaper of record, the New York Times has acknowledged – some 17 months after the story broke – that President Biden’s son’s laptop was indeed President Biden’s son’s laptop.
As Glenn Greenwald recounts in the above link, the oldest newspaper in the US, the NY Post, broke an explosive story just weeks before the US presidential election: Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden’s son had left a laptop computer at a repair shop and never returned for it. On the computer was a veritable cornucopia of corruption liberally seasoned with some of the most depraved behaviors known to man.
The tales of corruption from that laptop, apparently leading up to the “big guy” himself, may have been enough to have turned the electoral tide against Biden. As a result, the entire US mainstream media moved as one to suppress any mention of the “laptop from hell.”
They refused to even cover it in the media and they erased it completely from the social media. Twitter actually suspended the account of the New York Post for two weeks as punishment for breaking the story. Facebook’s Andy S
tone – a longtime Democratic Party political operative – was trotted out to inform the world that Facebook would actively use its tech powers to suppress any discussion of the laptop.
In this age of confusion and doubts about the veracity of almost everything, there is one pretty reliable indication that something is the truth—the mainstream media and Big Tech call it disinformation. From Glenn Greenwald at greenwald.substack.com:
The media outlets which spread this lie from ex-CIA officials never retracted their pre-election falsehoods, ones used by Big Tech to censor reporting on the front-runner.
One of the most successful disinformation campaigns in modern American electoral history occurred in the weeks prior to the 2020 presidential election. On October 14, 2020 — less than three weeks before Americans were set to vote — the nation’s oldest newspaper, The New York Post, began publishing a series of reports about the business dealings of the Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in countries in which Biden, as Vice President, wielded considerable influence (including Ukraine and China) and would again if elected president.
The backlash against this reporting was immediate and intense, leading to suppression of the story by U.S. corporate media outlets and censorship of the story by leading Silicon Valley monopolies. The disinformation campaign against this reporting was led by the CIA’s all-but-official spokesperson Natasha Bertrand (then of Politico, now with CNN), whose article on October 19 appeared under this headline: “Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo, dozens of former intel officials say.”
None dare call it corruption. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:
Update (1000ET): Donald Trump Jr. has just raised an interesting question in a tweet: Is Twitter censoring the Hunter Biden stories from the NY Post at the behest of the Communist Party of China?
“There needs to be an immediate government investigation into @twitter/@jack. Not just because of their blatant election interference to protect Biden, but to find out if they’re censoring these NY Post stories at the behest of the Chinese Communist Party. Put Jack under oath!!!” Don Jr. tweeted.
There needs to be an immediate government investigation into @twitter/@jack.
Not just because of their blatant election interference to protect Biden, but to find out if they're censoring these NY Post stories at the behest of the Chinese Communist Party.
The 10 top political topics were overwhelmingly ‘anti-Trump’.

Update (0935ET): Despite last night’s “apology” from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Twitter and Facebook are already censoring Thursday’s latest Hunter Biden exposé from the NY Post.
Congress is demanding an explanation, yet Twitter and Facebook are moving ahead with their outright censorship.

Rudy Giuliani hinted last night that there would be more emails from the trove discovered by a Delaware computer repair shop owner (who has shared his story on the record with Fox News). And at 0500ET, the NYPost published another lengthy exposé – at least the second front-page piece in what is shaping up to be a fascinating series – citing never-before-seen emails between Hunter Biden and various individuals connected to a major Chinese energy firm that failed earlier this year after its chairman – a party insider with deep ties to China’s military – was “disappeared” by China’s state security apparatus.
