Never let the facts get in the way of a good non-story. That's the approach the New York Times took the last 18 months, until today, when the Times finally admitted that Hunter Biden's laptop of depravity, secrets and lies is in fact real. As real as Hunter's shady business dealings with China.
Despite previously dismissing stories surrounding Hunter Biden's laptop as "unsubstantiated" for the last year and a half, the New York Times reluctantly admitted that prosecutors are now diving into Biden's laptop and the claims that he used his father's political positions as a way to secure funds in return for access to his father and some favorable business dealings.
Hunter Biden? More like Hunter Briben.
The Times' story, which is conveniently buried 20+ pages deep into Thursday's paper, details the relationship between Hunter Biden and business partner Devon Archer and Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company. The New York Post first uncovered and documented this story back in the fall of 2020.
“People familiar with the investigation said prosecutors had examined emails between Mr. Biden, Mr. Archer and others about Burisma and other foreign business activity,” states the Times. “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.”
Archer has already been convicted and sentenced on a charge of felony securities fraud.
Until Thursday, the Times, President Biden, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, and seemingly all of the Democrat Party dismissed claims that the Hunter Biden laptop ever existed, or if it did, that it was merely an example of Russian misinformation.
Conveniently and predictably, the New York Times decided to make news of Hunter Biden's laptop story and its authenticity a year and a half after his father took office. Never mind that the facts initially relayed by the New York Post haven't changed.
Not wanting to admit their error, the New York Times still found a way to shift away from the main point of the story -- Hunter Biden's illegal dealings with businesses from across the pond because of his father's name and pending position. Instead, they pointed out that Biden had recently caught up on unpaid taxes. How noble.
You better dive deep into Hunter and his laptop today, because if the New York Times and liberal media have taught us anything, it's that this will quickly become yesterday's news.
