Question of the Day

OPINION:

At the height of the presidential race pitting former Vice President Joe Biden against then-President Donald Trump, former new york City Mayor Rudy Giuliani was given a laptop. It contained scabrous information, incriminating Hunter Biden và his father, the Democratic candidate, Mr. Biden. 

Mr. Giuliani promptly brought the máy vi tính to the attention of The new york Post. The Post authenticated it and validated its content, interviewing the owner of the computer-repair siêu thị where Hunter dropped the máy tính xách tay off as well as various associates of Hunter who appeared on the computer’s hard drive. 


The editors of The thành phố new york Post figured they had a copper-bottom story of corruption by Hunter và possibly of corruption with the Democratic presidential candidate. Hunter was caught colluding on the máy vi tính with deep-pocketed Chinese and Ukrainian tycoons. Worse still, on the máy tính xách tay he claimed he would be giving his father — “the Big Guy” — a cut of the cash that was changing hands.  The laptop turned up in September 2020 and by October there should have been an enormous story following up on The thủ đô new york Post’s reporting. But outside of the conservative truyền thông it was a non-story. Now The Post says “the story was censored by social truyền thông companies at the behest of the Democratic Party. Mainstream truyền thông media outlets — including the Times — attacked or ignored the Post’s revelations.” 


The Biden chiến dịch claimed the story was part of a Russian disinformation campaign — another instance of Mr. Trump supposedly colluding with the Russians. What is more, over 50 intelligence community adepts signed a letter, claiming The Post story had “the classic earmarks of a Russian disinformation operation.” These intelligence community adepts really have it in for Mr. Trump. I wonder why? They are not supposed khổng lồ be so partisan, are they?

Now, The new york Times has published a story — 17 months after The Post published its story — that the Hunter Biden máy tính exists và the evidence that The Post has published is true without mentioning The Post by name. That is khổng lồ say, The Times validated The Post’s story 16 months after the Big Guy won the presidency. 


The Times seems to be admitting khổng lồ participating in a vast cover-up. Why would it? Does it think that its readers only know what appears in The thành phố new york Times? Apparently, the news is not news until The Times says it is. Nowhere in The Times’ long & tedious report of the Hunter Biden story is The Post mentioned, though The Times’ story is basically using The Post’s reportage.

I can think of no better example of The thành phố new york Times existing in a bubble than The Times’ treatment of this story. In fact, I can think of no better example of the American left — which I no longer call liberal — living in a bubble than its treatment of this story. America really is a divided country. There is the conservative part of America & there is the left-wing part of America.

The left-wing of America recently went on for months believing the right-wing of America was conspiring against Hunter Biden và his blameless dad. Possibly, Mr. Biden really is blameless, though I would like to know how one becomes seriously wealthy on nothing more than a senator’s salary for 36 years. 

As for Hunter, possibly he is as brilliant as his father insists that he is, though he badly needed a shave in the pictures that The new york Post ran of him the other day, as well as a bath và a fresh hair dye. What is more, lifting a line from his dad, in one picture he needs khổng lồ work on his pecs. Vì chưng you recall Mr. Biden tapping a journalist on the chest and saying, “You need to work on your pecs.” Hunter’s upper body toàn thân is not well tended to.

Yet enough of the Biden family. Let us over today’s session on another noble note: Glory to Ukraine!
