Even before he took office, all of the major outlets published one phony story after another -- most accusing Trump of being a dupe of 'Russia,' and all of them relying on an "anonymous intelligence community" and "government" sources.
Meanwhile, those same outlets were suppressing real, compromising information about the Biden family: that Hunter Biden was in deep, financially, with unsavory governments and potential adversaries like Ukraine, Russia and China, and that daddy Joe Biden was getting a cut of all of his son's action. The New York Post was the first to report on these bombshells, in mid-October 2020, just a few weeks before the election, but the stories were literally suppressed by Big Tech platforms and poo-pooed by Big Media as being nothing more than "Russian disinformation."
Though scores of U.S. intelligence community officials and "experts" assured us of that, it turns out they were lying, as they did throughout Trump's presidency, and none other than The New York Times, one of the biggest Hunter Biden story suppressors and doubters, has now confirmed those reports were accurate -- but the paper hasn't apologized for lying about the Hunter Biden revelations nor have the editors corrected the record.
Now the Times and all of the other lying outlets are being called out by one of the few true investigative journalists left in the profession, Glenn Greenwald, who has been documenting for years how the mainstream media has lied about Trump and lied to the American people about his record as president.
"One of the most successful disinformation campaigns in modern American electoral history occurred in the weeks prior to the 2020 presidential election," he wrote late last week on his Substack page.
"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," Greenwald continued.
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.”
In reality, the "former intel officials" didn't actually declare that the Hunter Biden story was Russian misinformation. To be clear, they stressed in their letter just the opposite -- that they had no evidence to suggest that the emails and other documents were fake or that Russia was responsible for 'planting' the 'fake evidence' on Biden's laptop. Rather, they only said their "suspicion" was that the information was fake based on their 'vast experience':
We want to emphasize that we do not know if the emails, provided to the New York Post by President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, are genuine or not and that we do not have evidence of Russian involvement -- just that our experience makes us deeply suspicious that the Russian government played a significant role in this case. [Emphasis added]
But the corporate media and the rest of the deep state were so desperate to see Trump defeated, they literally refused to investigate The Post's revelations and instead simply declared them fakery by Moscow.
Fast-forward to last week: The Times published a story detailing an ongoing federal investigation into Hunter Biden over potential violations of laws requiring Americans to register as lobbyists for foreign governments as well as tax fraud. The story included this passage:
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. [Emphasis added]
It was clear that the emails and other documents (including actual photos of Hunter Biden) were genuine from the outset. But the 'mainstream' media chose to ignore them purposely because most reporters and editors in the American press are nothing but propagandists and shills for the Democratic Party.
Trump's reelection was stolen from him on multiple levels; our fake news media was involved in it every step of the way.
