Election Manipulation Unmasked: NY Times Finally Admits Hunter Biden Emails Were Authentic, Not ‘Russian Disinformation’

Election Manipulation Unmasked: NY Times Finally Admits Hunter Biden Emails Were Authentic, Not ‘Russian Disinformation’

Prof. Jacobson: “Biden sold his VP office to enrich his family, it was the biggest story of the 2020 election, and the media, big tech, and Biden lied about it and covered it up – it made a difference in the outcome. Biden is President because of this manipulation and collusion.”

https://nypost.com/2020/10/14/email-reveals-how-hunter-biden-introduced-ukrainian-biz-man-to-dad/

Undoubtedly one of the most shameful moments in the history of American journalism came in October 2020, when just a few weeks before the presidential election Joe Biden-supporting Democrats, media outlets including NPR, CNN, the WaPo, Politico, and others colluded with Big Tech to suppress the NY Post’s solid investigative reporting (backed up by additional reporting from the Daily Caller) on the Hunter Biden laptop and the emails that were contained on it that raised major concerns about influence peddling.

Not only did Twitter lock the New York Post’s Twitter account for two weeks because they refused to take down tweets referencing the story, but it also flagged other users who tried to share it. Facebook also suppressed the paper’s reporting and, as Twitter noted in its own rationale, Facebook said it was done under the guise of wanting to halt the spread of “disinformation.”

The Democrat apologist media “reporting” at the time coalesced around a fake “Russian disinformation” narrative, allegedly sourced by “dozens of former intel officials” who suggested in so many words that Russia cooked up the email scandal to influence the 2020 presidential election. Though then-DNI John Ratcliffe insisted that intelligence agencies had no evidence of such a scheme, the media and Democrats ran with it nevertheless because they were terrified the Post’s stories would lead to President Trump’s reelection.

Here are some examples of the media doing their part to debunk/suppress/falsely label the story:

Jen Psaki, who went on to become Biden’s press secretary, made sure to join in:

Fast forward some 17 months, and the New York Times has dropped some fresh reporting on the topic, “confirming” what we already knew about the emails:

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.

The New York Post’s original reporting was not referenced anywhere in the Times piece because of course it wasn’t.

Perhaps even more infuriating then the media’s original censoring of the story was how some reporters acted shocked that the New York Times was able to authenticate the emails:

Naturally, reactions from conservatives to the news were swift:

Now that the New York Times has given the emails their official seal of authentication, the Politico story and others like it must be revisited:

Don’t count on it, for reasons explained here and then some:

Yep. Mission accomplished. Move along, nothing to see here. Right?

No regulation of social media in order to make elections fair by making sure all parties have access to the commons on an equal level because???? Why exactly? Let me guess “MUH GOVERNMENT BAAAADDDD”. The corporations of this country are a power center and they are the ones taking freedom out of society.

    henrybowman in reply to Danny. | March 17, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    Because??
    Because social media performed precisely as the shadow government wished them to.
    Your implication that government “regulation” would have somehow “corrected” this “error” is unicorn-fart philosophy.
    If anything, it will multiply it.

      Donald J Trump was the president at the time you are saying he wanted them to act as the Democrats enforcers?

      Lets do government regulation of the public square for dummies.

      1. Every other nation on planet Earth regulates their public square including ones you consider free like Poland and Hungary

      2. Every generation of America has had the public square regulated by the United States Government

      3. Corporations are power centers, if not balanced by other power centers they will rule you which is a reason why nobody on this planet favors no corporate regulations besides woke American leftists who know corporate America is their toy

      4. Government regulations work like a charm. The Civil Rights Act is a government regulation, labor regulations are government regulations. Companies follow them and they spend lavishly on lawyers to make sure they are in full compliance.

      Sorry if it is too hard for you to grasp but private corporations acted in a private capacity to destroy us and rig an election via censorship. Government is the only solution. If you like having elections rigged by censorship keep fighting against use of government as a solution.

      By the way if the governor of California or New York asked a major company to break the law he/she would be told Fuck You not be obeyed.

      Democrats want the public square unregulated because they love censorship by corporate America on their behalf you just seem stuck in the Bush era.

        henrybowman in reply to Danny. | March 18, 2022 at 12:54 am

        “Donald J Trump was the president at the time you are saying he wanted them to act as the Democrats enforcers?”

        Yes. Don’t be willfully stupid. Donald Trump was in charge de jure, but never de facto. The swamp was in charge, exactly as they are now.

        (If Donald Trump was really in charge, how did he get permanently banned by Twitter?)

        “Sorry if it is too hard for you to grasp but private corporations acted in a private capacity to destroy us and rig an election via censorship. Government is the only solution.”

        You seem determined to ignore CONSERVATIVE Barry Goldwater: “A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you have.”
        As well as CONSERVATIVE Rick Cook: “The key to understanding the American system is to imagine that you have the power to make nearly any law you want. But your worst enemy will be the one to enforce it.”

        Many non-media corporations did exactly the same thing — like the Soros outlets, who sent “get out the vote money” exclusively to blue districts, and bought elections for DAs in those areas. The government already has the power to regulate them. See any of that regulatin’ goin’ on, Krako?
        “Oh, but they’ll do the right thing with media companies.” Sucker.

        “If you like having elections rigged by censorship keep fighting against use of government as a solution.”

        If you don’t realize by now — as CONSERVATIVE Reagan said — that government is not the solution, it is the problem, then here’s a dime — call your mother. You’re unlikely to learn anything more here.

          Danny in reply to henrybowman. | March 18, 2022 at 1:56 am

          1. United States Government never asked for this story to be killed, it was the will of mega corporations who managed to do it because Bushites like you determined “MUH GOVERNMENT BAAADDDD!!!!” and decided the internet would be the first time anywhere the public square wouldn’t be under regulations and as every high school student would have predicted the corporate oligarchs stepped in to fill in the void. You know like the oligarchs who banned Trump from twitter?

          2. Barry Goldwater wow so you quoted a one liner that doesn’t actually define the mans politics beliefs or the actual policies of any Republican president. Well lets go over some of Barry Goldwater’s politics through a law he actually wrote

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cable_Communications_Policy_Act_of_1984

          This was a law he wrote lets go over some of it

          “This provision declared that state and local authorities should allow, but not mandate, that this type of information be distributed via non-commercial Public, educational, and government access (PEG) cable TV channels. Furthermore, it prohibited cable operators from exerting any type of editorial control over program content broadcast through PEG channels and freed them from any potential liability for the content. The act lifted programming rules and subscription fees.”

          So cable operators barred from law from exercising editorial control over program content? Wow that sure looks like GOVERNMENT controlling the public square, like it did in the 20th, 19th and 18th century and as it does in every other country.

          A law introduced and written by Barry Goldwater that explicitly regulated the public square and restricted what you could do with your business tells us a lot more about what Barry Goldwater believed than than a throwaway soundbite that meant nothing at the time and means less now.

          I agree with Barry Goldwater we need government regulation of public square as for Rick Cook so what? I have Barry Goldwater on my side.

          3. Florida has passed laws restricting what you described; in other words they use GOVERNMENGT POWER to SUPPRESS action by a private corporation that had been legal till their new laws.

          4. Ronald Raegan singed this act written by Barry Goldwater into law you idiot https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cable_Communications_Policy_Act_of_1984

          This anarchism/libertarianism you are advocating has nothing to do with Ronald Raegan. How these people actually governed matters, and they did not govern based on “MUH GOVERNMENT BAAAADDD!!!!” they used the government.

          If the fact that when confronted with the hypothetical of speech in the public square Raegan and Goldwater determined government should prevent censorship by private corporations remember who started the “War on Drugs” (a program of government suppressing entire trades and criminalizing possession of drug materials?) That is correct Ronald Raegan.

          He used anti-government rhetoric but as president was never a libertarian.

          Dathurtz in reply to henrybowman. | March 18, 2022 at 6:45 am

          What do you do when the government is already that big? You either have to weaponize it for you or eliminate its ability to be weaponized.

          M Poppins in reply to henrybowman. | March 18, 2022 at 1:09 pm

          the opposite is true. Government regulations are inherently corrupt and suppressive.

      Danny in reply to henrybowman. | March 18, 2022 at 1:49 pm

      Do you have an answer for this besides “MUH GOVERNMENT BAAADDD!!!!!”

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cable_Communications_Policy_Act_of_1984

‘Mission accomplished, move along nothing to see.’

Yes and no. The short term objectives of crushing this story because of it’s potential to upend Biden’s campaign was absolutely successful. So that mission was certainly accomplished. The long term objectives of either continuing to seal away the truth from the broader public or at least disclose it in dribs and drabs over time in the hope that no one either remembers or cares exactly who the principle liars were has failed miserably.

I still don’t believe that those individuals and entities responsible for suppression of the Hunter Biden story and those who chose to deliberately risk their professional reputation understand how badly they have miscalculated. This story, alongside the many chapters of the Covid hysteria, the imposition of an official narrative and the multitude of bad actors from local officials up to the CDC and Fauci has forever undermined the trust in these individuals and the organizations responsible.

Speaking for myself and most of my circle we are no longer prepared to give the the govt the benefit of the doubt on issues large and small. The days of ‘defer to the experts’ has come and gone never to return. None of us want to be completely distrustful of most govt actions. Many of us have worn our Nation’s uniforms serving in ground combat around the world. The experience of war tends to make it’s veterans cynical but even we were not prepared for the govt to outright lie when provable facts were easily available which demonstrated the contrary.

IMO, the legacy media and SR officials in and out of office who participated in these masquerades have vastly underestimated the damage they have caused. When the next ’emergency’ arises and politicians alongside experts step to the podium to lay out their rule set to address the crisis they may be shocked to discover how few are willing to endure their prescription without the delivery of of the raw data from which they base their policies and an independent assessment of the data. There is unlikely to ever be another episode in which the American People willingly repeat ‘two weeks to stop the spread’.

    MattMusson in reply to CommoChief. | March 18, 2022 at 10:17 am

    Dateline January 2025. Today, the New York Times stealth edited 5 years worth of articles denying widespread fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.

    “We were on top of this story from the beginning and were just waiting for one final confirmation,” said a spokesperson for the newspaper.

    Danny in reply to CommoChief. | March 18, 2022 at 1:40 pm

    Problem with what you said is that the Corporate oligarchs who control speech in this country still control speech and enough Republicans are still stuck in Bush’ “MUH GOVERNMENT BAAAD” that I just don’t see how we defeat the censorship next time.

    Ironically if they stopped quoting Goldwater and Raegan out of context they would find that both men backed government regulations to prevent a corporate takeover of the public square.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cable_Communications_Policy_Act_of_1984

    An act of government from the good old days brought to us by Ronald Raegan and Barry Goldwater. I have advocated returning to such roots for some time.

“Biden is President because of this manipulation and collusion.”

What about the fake vote counts?

    CommoChief in reply to irv. | March 17, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    Not fake counts so much as unvalidated registration lists, fraudulent, and improper votes being counted which were cast by dubious persons, overseen by partisan actors, influenced by outside zuckbucks to arrive at preferred conclusion.

    They counted just fine. The issue is what ballots they counted and whether those ballots were cast in strict adherence to the voting laws prescribed by the State Legislature or if they deviated because Rona and reasons. They and we know what occurred if not the true extent.

      MattMusson in reply to CommoChief. | March 18, 2022 at 10:20 am

      Widespread fake mail in ballots created from lists of people who had not voted yet, delivered by 2000 vote harvesting mules to drop boxes after dark.

      Why do you think there were record numbers of voters casting duplicate ballots? Because they voted on election day after the fake ballots were already delivered.

        And instead of the un-validated, un-signed mail in ballot being disqualified and the provisional ballot cast by the verified and in-person voter being counted, the exact opposite happened in the disputed states.

        healthguyfsu in reply to MattMusson. | March 18, 2022 at 12:25 pm

        And nothing to see here on Obama’s stooge, Judge Sullivan to order a halt to counts late at night away from his district of jurisdiction in DC and of course the counters complied because they were just waiting for a reason.

NYT spoke truth through projection. The assertion, allegation, accusation of disinformation was itself disinformation.

    They are now speaking truth (on this issue only) because it suits their purpose. All they did is “flip a switch” without explaining their past mistakes. Nothing has changed except they are now going to throw Biden and Harris under the bus. Because it suits their purpose. Their usefulness has expired.

    Let me know when they start reporting on the real problem: Rice and gang administrating Obama’s 3rd term.

      randian in reply to Pasadena Phil. | March 18, 2022 at 7:00 pm

      Their usefulness has expired

      It expired the day Biden was inaugurated, but it would have admitted too much to eliminate them day one. Biden’s handlers did most of what they wanted to happen on day 1 (like killing Keystone XL) or a short time after.

    Here is Richard Grenell on the Ruben Report on March 16 speaking out on what everyone refuses to report:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjICP8imvpw

    The obvious is not only staring us in the face but slapping us around. Too many among us, for instance, simply refused to see Barr for the traitor he was. Are we that blind to what is going on? Or do we just refuse to allow people to speak the truth even among ourselves because we can’t handle the truth?

    We are willing participants in our own repression. Kick me again! Better to be kicked by a friend than by an enemy?

Bitch McConnell, Barr, and all of their RINO ilk did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING when Big Tech openly censored anybody that tried to bring this up – INCLUDING TRUMP.

They knew it was real from day fucking 1, and they did absolutely nothing because they wanted Trump gone.

Barr was the worst. He had the physical laptop in possession of the DOJ and did ABSOLUTELY FUCK ALL ABOUT IT.

I am so sick of these RINO pukes.

My calculations have suggested that the statue of limitations on the truth in today’s America is somewhere between nine and 15 months.

You can pillory, cancel, slander, censor, and ridicule people for saying things that get proven, despite your best efforts, to be incontrovertibly true nine to 15 months later, and get a total pass for it.

No harm, no foul. Except to the people who got censored or fired, who are told to shake it off and take a kickboxing class, because freedom isn’t free.

They admit it during wartime. What better time to hide their corruption?

They can admit it now, the damage is done, just like coming out after the the most fairness election in history then admit ihow they rigged it.

MoeHowardwasright | March 18, 2022 at 4:13 am

My take is a bit different. The slimes admitting it wasn’t fake is the first shot in the effort to remove xiden. Someone has made the decision it’s time for him to go. Jill ain’t going to like this outcome. Let’s face it, if the slimes is saying the emails are authentic, those emails are damning to say the least. 10% for the big guy.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair | March 18, 2022 at 4:17 am

Michael Isikoff
@Isikoff

In the category of – didn’t see this coming : The ⁦@nytimes⁩ confirms the authenticity of Hunter Biden emails derived from his laptop that had been previously dismissed as Russian disinformation.

LOL.

No one with even half a brain ever believed any of taht Russia, Russia, Russia!!! bullshit. It was stupid and contrived from the very start and everyone knew it.

As to the laptop and the emails and stuff on it, the Biden criminal family clan didn’t even deny the laptop was the retarded crack addict’s. It was only after a week, or so, that the other leftists started making the laughable claim that the Russkies were hard at work, again, with it – which was good for a few laughs. Not as many laughs as the crack-addict, meth-mouthed Biden’s home videos … but some.

And all this because the criminal Biden clan of retards had a kid who couldn’t pay a few hundred dollars to get the laptop back from the repair ship he had dropped it off at. Cheap, retarded bastards.

Biden and his kid are quite the pair – mush-mouth and meth-mouth. The whole friggin family ought to be behind bars.

This is an example of the “diversified portfolio” in the effort to steal an election. Besides the shenanigans with mail-in balloting, ballot harvesting, boxes of middle-of-night ballots, etc. Add in efforts like this and you have no one effort large enough to prove a stolen election, rather, a multitude of small efforts that add up to a senile old man that campaigned from his basement being elected POTUS, despite Trump getting a record number of actual votes.

Steven Brizel | March 18, 2022 at 8:29 am

We always knew that the emperor has no clothes and that the legacy media, aided and abetted by Big Tech deliberately buried this story so that the Manchurian Candidate would be the Manchurian President presiding over the most radical administration in American history that serves the interests of the woke agenda and its obsessions with the false gods and junk science created doctrines of systemic racism, gender fluidity and climate change

In the immortal words of Harry Reid: “We won, didn’t we?”

The legacy media burns their credibility to the ground every time they can push the leftist narrative, then stand around in the ashes and wail “Nobody trusts us!”

Gee, I wonder why?

Jonathan Cohen | March 18, 2022 at 11:32 am

The NYT is not ashamed of thei9r reporting. They are proud of it. The denunciation of the laptop story as Russian disinformation was a NOBLE LIE, an outeraageous falsehood told for the noble cause of getting rid of Trump. It was part of a series of other noble lies about such things as the collusion delusion hoax, the impeachment lies, the refusal to visit a cemetery for WW I victims, and finally the claim that the laptop was not real.

Lying has become so inbred into liberal talking points that they are no long embarrassed when they are exposed. What matters now is whether what they say advances their agendas, not whether they are in fact true.

Consider the lies that Lia Thomas is female, that gender is a matter of choice, sexual orientation is entirely genetic, same sex marriage is the same as traditional marriage, asking for voters to present identification is Jim Crow 2.0, the Democrats are pro law enforcement, the loss of US energy independence under Biden is because of oil company greed rather than green new deal activism causing the cancelling of the Dakota pipeline and drilling in Alaska, the Biden administration is opposed to open borders, liberal crime policies such as no bail laws, shorter sentences and de-policing are not leading to a crime wave, vaccines are perfectly safe and prevent infection and the spread of Covid and that lock downs would end the pandemic rather than prolong it.

These ideas are promoted, not because they are true but because they promote some cause that is noble and therefore lying is okay.

The anti-Trump narratives that the media got wrong:
“Trump gassed protesters for a photo op.
Trump “ignoring Russian bounties on our troops”.
Trump called soldiers suckers”.
The lab leak is a conspiracy.
There won’t be a vaccine by the end of 2020.
Hunter Biden story is Russian disinformation.
Trump told politicians in GA to “find the fraud”.
DeSantis is evil and Cuomo is doing a great job.
Russia hacked the election.
Michael Cohen went to Prague.
Fine people on both sides.
Trump, Jr. got the Wikileaks dump in advance.
Russian collusion in the 2020 election.”

A beast with motivations that are so simple, predictable, and readily deceived is easily slain.

The ugly question no one is asking is: So why hasn’t it been slain and why is no one slaying it now?

With the likes of Veritas and Andy Ngo doing REAL journalism, it’s not like real practitioners of the art would not rise up and fill the void.

and of course LI…. is on that list.

@everyone still attacking government regulations

Does that apply to the Civil Rights Act? Does that apply to the Stop Woke Act by Ron DeSantis?

If you are fighting good government regulations you are fighting on the Democrat team.

    CommoChief in reply to Danny. | March 18, 2022 at 3:51 pm

    Danny,

    The reason some are reluctant to embrace govt regulations as a solution more or less boils down to:

    1. Previous capture of the existing institutions by our political opposition
    2. Fear that new grants of power will be misused by our political opposition

    Both of those concerns are well founded, at least at the Federal level. It is an undeniable truth that our bloated Federal govt, it’s regulatory and administrative structure is run day to day by a partisan workforce claiming sanctuary begins civil service protections. There are ways around the logjam of intransigent Federal employees. Create an ‘interdisciplinary taskforce’, base the TF in Alaska. Transfer every Federal employee to the TF who is a member of the ‘resistance’. These employees can choose to accept reassignment or resign from govt service. Problem solved. Sure there would be lawsuits and bad PR, so what. Confiscate their credentials, revoke their building access and network access and escort them off the property. At least they are out of the way.

    Where the real chance for action exists is at the State and local level. Federalism and State sovereignty still exist and I agree with you that we should make use of these levers. Pension funds can exert influence. States could simply require free speech and personal conscious to be granted a State contract or grant. States could require tech companies to remain content neutral for otherwise lawful conduct if they wish State and local govt to utilize their platforms.

thad_the_man | March 18, 2022 at 5:24 pm

The diplomats are pushing us towards war. The military guys are saying it would be dumb. So far Biden is leaning towards the military.

So the diplomats push the Hunter laptop front and center as a shot across Uncle Joe’s bow. “Start siding with us or it will be President Kamy.”
