Rookie reporters at most outlets are taught to use the “inverted pyramid” model to write their stories: Open with the central conclusion of the story first, then give the most important evidence and details first, and finally deliver more general information and background at the bottom.
But for the “reporters” at The New York Times, a very different model prevails. If one wants to get the most important information from a Times piece, it behooves oneself to start at the bottom and read up. Holocaust survivor got butchered in the streets of Paris? The Times won’t mention a migrant was responsible until the 12th paragraph. Democratic lawmaker is accusing a random citizen of racism?
And so it was on Wednesday, when near the end of a 1,700-word article on Hunter Biden’s possible legal troubles, the Times admitted what all honest reporters have known for a year and a half: The contents of the Hunter Biden laptop are real, and the press simply ignored it for political reasons:
People familiar with the investigation said prosecutors had examined emails between Mr. Biden, Mr. Archer and others about Burisma and other foreign business activity. Those emails were obtained by The New York Times from a cache of files that appears to have come from a laptop abandoned by Mr. Biden in a Delaware repair shop. The email and others in the cache were authenticated by people familiar with them and with the investigation.
That the Times finally came out to awkwardly admit the truth almost a year and a half later points toward a very obvious conclusion: Things might very soon become even more embarrassing for Hunter Biden, and the Times‘s editors have decided they cannot credibly remain silent until the hammer drops.
The Times’s controlled admission also allows them to try and keep public focus on relatively boring matters of tax payments and FARA compliance, rather than other salacious and still-relevant parts of the laptop, such as Hunter apparently buying prostitutes with his father’s credit card.
Still, the Times’ admission is good news. But this belated shift cannot for one moment be treated as improving or restoring the Times’ credibility. Americans will remember, for all time, how totally and completely the press lied in order to throw the 2020 election to Joe Biden by any means necessary.
There is another lesson that must be learned as well: That “Russian disinformation” has displaced “white supremacy” and even “racism” as the elite’s preferred vehicle for mass censorship.
Washington Post writer Greg Sargent, author of the Plum Line blog, set the party line in the critical month of October 2020. According to Sargent, the story was completely fake “disinformation,” and the mere act of reporting on it was to be avoided as much as possible, because any coverage at all served to substantiate the Trump campaign’s “lies.” This line was repeated more or less verbatim by every other “mainstream” outlet in the weeks to follow.
The same day that Sargent published the marching orders, another Post article baselessly insinuated that President Trump was complicit in a Russian espionage plot.
U.S. intelligence agencies warned the White House last year that President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani was the target of an influence operation by Russian intelligence, according to four former officials familiar with the matter.
The warnings were based on multiple sources, including intercepted communications, that showed Giuliani was interacting with people tied to Russian intelligence during a December 2019 trip to Ukraine, where he was gathering information that he thought would expose corrupt acts by former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
The intelligence raised concerns that Giuliani was being used to feed Russian misinformation to the president, the former officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive information and conversations.
…Officials’ warnings about Giuliani underscore the concern in the U.S. intelligence community that Russia not only is seeking to reprise the disinformation campaign it waged in 2016, but also may now be aided, unwittingly or otherwise, by individuals close to the president. Those warnings have gained fresh urgency in recent days. The information that Giuliani sought in Ukraine is similar to what is contained in emails and other correspondence published this week by the New York Post, which the paper said came from the laptop of Hunter Biden and were provided by Giuliani and Stephen K. Bannon, Trump’s former top political adviser at the White House. The Washington Post was unable to verify the authenticity of the alleged communications, which concern Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine and China.
The media’s claims about being unable to “verifying the authenticity” of the emails was always a lie, as Glenn Greenwald chronicled on Rumble last year:
From the Washington Post, the story instantly spread to The New York Times, and then to the cable news airwaves:
Please watch this video from CNN's Wolf Blitzer show shortly before the election. Now that we have (more) proof that the Biden docs were always genuine, just watch how these people lie.

When confronted by a Washington Times politics reporter, obese CNN personality Brian Stelter claimed a special obligation never to present “unvetted” information to the public.
.@BrianStelter: "Don't you dare. Don't you dare act like newsrooms didn't have ethics in 2017 & 2018."@SusanFerrechio: "You can 'don't dare' me all you want, Brian, I've been doing this for 30 years."

Despite supposedly being a “media reporter,” Stelter has entirely ignored the New York Times’ revelation that CNN and the entire media apparatus had been wrong (apparently deliberately) about the contents of the laptop.
CNN’s suppression of the Biden laptop was so aggressive that hosts would intervene if guests attempted to even mention it (with the zeal of Fox hosts trying to stop discussion of George Soros):
Memories. Here is CNN’s @amanpour dismissing incriminating evidence about Joe Biden from Hunter Biden’s laptop. “As you well know, I’m a journalist and a reporter and I follow the facts and there has never been any issues in terms of corruption” with Joe Biden. https://t.co/1H1wAxBExM

Taxpayer-funded NPR repulsively dispatched its public editor to write a smug explanation for why the prole masses should not hear about the story:
“We don’t want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories, and we don’t want to waste the listeners’ and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distractions,” NPR Managing Editor for News Terence Samuel told me. “And quite frankly, that’s where we ended up, this was … a politically driven event and we decided to treat it that way.”
Of course, NPR once famously dedicated a lengthy segment to the problem of racist bird names.
And so it unfolded that American journalists, as a class, boasted that they would not cover the story, and nobody could make them. Instead of pursuing the truth, they became the defenders and celebrators of silence and censorship.
Giuliani and the New York Post are pushing Russian disinformation. It's a big test for the media. https://t.co/BzYprfDfZU

The media is not under some obligation to cover obvious disinformation. And spreading disinformation doesn't make you some courageous defender of the 1st Amendment – it makes you an easy mark.

Wikileaks were "hacked materials" & part of a Russian disinformation campaign.
It became egg on every media that ran breathlessly with it.

Vanity Fair, which believed in the Trump piss tape, deigned to lecture Americans on how fishy an obviously-real laptop was.

Almost every other publication of note was apparently as credulous as Vanity Fair when it came to the mythical pee tape.
We will never reclaim our Constitutional Republic unless we expose the massive corruption and deceit of the DC elite and the administrative state. The clintons, the obamas and the bidens have all enriched themselves criminally from the ccp, russia and ukraine. So many of those entrusted with the “consent” of the governed are compromised to the extent the representation they give is not to us but to others…
Check Out Joe Biden’s Stunning Jump In Income While His Crack-Smoking Son Was On The Board Of Ukraine’s Top Energy Company
The contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop have exposed, among other things, the extent to which Hunter Biden personally profited from peddling his father’s influence while he was Vice President of the United States. After calling the Hunter laptop scandal ‘Russian disinformation’ for the last year and a half, the New York Times finally acknowledged its legitimacy last week.
Beyond exposing Hunter’s degenerate acts and profiteering off of his father’s political influence, personal emails and texts show that Hunter cut his father in on some of his shady dealings.
Before Biden left office in 2016, his combined income with his wife, Jill Biden, sat under $400,000 at $396,456. Between 2017 to 2019, Jill and Joe amassed over $16 million in wealth.
The contents of Hunter’s laptop show multiple instances where Joe Biden was included in his son’s corrupt business ventures. In one e-mail, where Hunter calls Joe Biden ‘the big guy’, he planned to give his father a 10% stake in a company infused with $10 million in Chinese cash.
The company was set up by Hunter Biden’s associate, Tony Bobulinski. Bobulinski met with Joe Biden and incorporated the company, SinoHawk Holdings LLC two weeks later. Half of the company was owned by Chinese business titan Ye Jianming, who was arrested by Chinese authorities in 2018 on bribery charges.
The other half of the investment firm would be set up under a shell company called Oneida Holdings LLC, based out of Joe’s home state of Delaware. The e-mails between Bobulinski and Hunter show that they planned to give Joe Biden a 10 percent stake in the company.
“Oneida would be split according to an email sent by James Gilliar to the group on May 13, 2017, laying out the distribution of shares.
“The equity will be distributed as follows,” wrote Gilliar, listing the shares in percentages.
“20 H [Hunter]
“20 RW [Walker]
“20 JG [Gilliar]
“20 TB [Bobulinski]
“10 Jim [Biden]
“10 held by H for the big guy.”
Three years later, Bobulinski would tell the world that “there is no question” that “the big guy” is Joe Biden.”
The New York Post reported last November.
Joe’s son also sat on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma, where he earned between $500,000 and $1 million a year and where his father may have interfered in an investigation in to the gas company by demanding the ouster of the prosecutor investigating the company.

Easy there sounds like you are saying the VP is into shady dealings, what else happened during that time frame?
Trumps Economy! We know Trump lost money so it cant be every wealthy persons income jumped 16.1 million. Its just Joe from his basement dwelling free from his responsibilities of running the country for hapless Barry became a financial wizard.
And over here I have a bridge, its important infrastructure, I am willing to sell it well below the cost of building a new one. Also one of your relatives in europe has left you many millions in my bank in Dubai. The filing fees must be paid and its all yours!
Are you interested in becoming rich by starting you own Avon or Pampered chef dealership?
So, WHY does idiot Biden’s 10% have to be “held” by Hunter? If this is all legitimate, why can’t idiot Biden himself have iti out in the open and declare it?
Where the Bidens’ money came from from 2017 through 2019 is fully documented in their publicly released tax returns, moron.
Biden is installed by American and non-American Oligarchs.
The news media has even admitted they lied in order to help Biden win.
It’s not an opinion. It’s stated fact…making Biden NOT the president.
But good luck with the “we’ve scrubbed all his public records” propaganda. Ain’t gonna work this time.
How would we really know? We’ve seen everyone from Comey to Stelter publicly lie about election and country-altering things, without any consequences.
The so-called “mainstream media” is not mainstream and is not authoritative. It’s propaganda and dismissed by the free peoples of the world.
That should be thoroughly investigated. Idiot Biden lies about everything and we have the evidence of his and his family’s absolute corruption. Hunter should be audited and investigated as well.
You know, investigations are OK when there is something to investigate and idiot Biden himself provided the evidence that an investigation was needed.
Unable because they are unable to muster up the courage to face the facts instead of their propaganda.
Or they found that Hunter through Rosemont has money connections with the biolabs. The ones working with dangerous pathogen experiments not allowed in the States.
BREAKING: Jack Maxey Releases New Never Before Seen Hunter Biden Emails in Latest Drop as Promised
Jack Maxey has been telling people for over a year that he has a copy of Hunter Biden’s laptop and the hard drive. He’s told you in the last 48 hours that they have uncovered 80,000 new pics, and over 160,000 thought to be deleted emails. Well, the wait is over, Maxey has started to release the information to the world.
In a drop early Saturday morning in the United States, or late Saturday morning from where Maxey is located in Switzerland, he made the first drop of newly discovered Hunter Biden emails his team extracted from the hard drive. These emails were thought to be deleted by the Biden’s and powers that be, that turned out to be false.
