MSNBC and CNN ignored "Twitter Files" assertions that the FBI conspired with Twitter staff to protect the Biden campaign from the "Laptop from Hell" myth.
The networks, which have promoted conspiracy theories about the laptop being Russian disinformation, ignored Monday's release of data showing the FBI and intelligence community censored the "Laptop from Hell" narrative first published by Breitbart News's Emma-Jo Morris in 2020.
TVEyes reports two days without "Twitter Files" coverage on CNN and MSNBC.
“The FBI and intelligence community discredited factual evidence exposing Hunter Biden's overseas business dealings both after and *before* The New York Post disclosed the contents of his laptop on October 14, 2020,” Michael Shellenberger tweeted Monday.
Shellenberger cited Peter Schweizer's Secret Empires and Profiles in Corruption, which illustrate how the Biden family corporation generated tens of millions of dollars via foreign commercial transactions for which "Hunter supplied no meaningful work."
CNN and MSNBC's downplaying of one of 2022's greatest stories appears organized to minimize Biden Crime Family reputation.
The Washington Post, New York Times, Politico Playbook, Politico Punchbowl News, and Los Angeles Times ignored the news, Breitbart reported Tuesday.
Mainstream media also misreported the scandal. "Twitter Files" "broke little ground" on Hunter Biden's laptop, according to Bloomberg's Jennifer Jacobs.
Hunter's laptop was "stolen" but left at the computer repair shop, according to New York Times reporter Michael M. Grynbaum:
Musk and Taibbi called the exchanges poisonous liberal censorship. Many others—even some vehement Twitter critics—were less pleased, claiming the emails just revealed a group of executives sincerely debating how to handle an unproven news report based on a stolen laptop.
The New Republic's Michael Tomasky dubbed the files "the president's son's rubbish" and a Republican "obsession."
According to a recent survey, 71% of Americans feel factual reporting of Hunter's "Laptop from Hell" may have affected the 2020 presidential election.
Breitbart Senior Contributor and Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer wrote Secret Empires and Profiles in Corruption in 2018 and 2020. Hunter Biden and Joe Biden flew Air Force Two to China in 2013 before Hunter's firm secured a $1.5 billion deal with an arm of the Chinese government's Bank of China two weeks later. Both books topped the New York Times bestseller list. Schweizer revealed the Bidens' enormous foreign dealings and cronyism.
Breitbart Political Editor Emma-Jo Morris's investigative work at the New York Post on the Hunter Biden "laptop from hell" made international headlines when she and Miranda Devine revealed that Joe Biden was intimately involved in Hunter's businesses, including a 10% stake in a company the scion formed with top Chinese Communist Party officials.
The preceding is a summary of an article that originally appeared on Breitbart.
