Garbage all the way down

We closely covered the New York Post stories on Hunter Biden’s laptop from hell in the run-up to the 2020 presidential election. Anyone who took a close look at the story could see a self-authenticating element in it and, indeed, every piece of additional reporting that followed up on the Post’s reporting corroborated it.

With a little help from the Deep State 51, the laptop was dismissed as Russian disinformation, or rather a Russian information operation. How was that, exactly?

It wasn’t, yet Joe Biden himself declared it “a Russian plant” and the garbage media ranging from the New York Times to the Washington Post to NPR to CBS and CNN all rushed to suppress the story. They suppressed the story to defeat Donald Trump and promote Joe Biden. The social media giants worked in tandem with the former deep state officials and the garbage media to suppress the story.

Last week Joe Biden’s Department of Justice declared the contents of the laptop to be self-authenticating. Now it can be told, not that it will be told. See, for example, Glenn Kessler’s obtuse 2023 Washington Post in “fact-check.” Who did what to whom? And did the Washington Post have anything to do with it? Kessler can’t get his arms around it.

Jonathan Turley looks back in the context of last week’s declaration of the laptop’s authenticity:

The response from the media has been a collective shrug. Worse yet, many of these same political and media figures continue to support censorship and government regulations of “disinformation” while the government is now acknowledging that they carried off one of the most successful disinformation campaigns in history.

To adapt a phrase, it’s garbage all the way down.
