The Hunter Biden Story IS True

Erick-Woods Erickson

The story about Hunter Biden’s laptop was true. You and I have known for some time that Hunter Biden on his laptop had all sorts of scandalous pictures of himself smoking crack or doing drugs or some such with prostitutes. We also knew, for example, that Hunter Biden was trying to structure a business and in structuring the business was trying to give his father a part of the business and trying to work his dad into the situation. At the time that it happened, the national political press said, “Well, we’re sorry. We can’t verify the story’s true. We can’t run this story. It might not be true.”

National Public Radio, in fact, ran a story on why you weren’t hearing about the Hunter Biden story from them. They took a very smug position that they couldn’t verify that it was actually really true. It was annoying and disgusting. Here’s the New York Post from April of earlier this year.

“National Public Radio has corrected an online article that falsely asserted that documents from First Son Hunter Biden’s laptop had been discredited by U.S. intelligence. A book review of Hunter Biden’s memoir, Beautiful Things, initially dismissed the documents first reported in October of last year by the New York Post. The laptop story was discredited by U.S. intelligence and independent investigations by news organizations the book review by Ron Elving, Senior Editor of NPR, initially claimed.”

The correction on Thursday, this is, again, April of 2021 says, “A previous version of this story said U.S. intelligence had discredited the laptop story. U.S. intelligence officials have not made a statement to that effect.”

And yet National Public Radio insisted that there was no reason to cover the story because the story was in some ways false. Remember, they ran with Christine Blasey Ford allegations and they ran with all the other allegations as well about Brett Kavanaugh that turned out not to be true, but they blocked coverage of Hunter Biden.
