The New York Post’s revelations last week of the contents of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop – including national security sensitive information, as well as sordid personal details – has triggered two competing responses.
For those who have actually been able to learn about these revelations, the reaction has typically been outrage at the evidence of endemic corruption in former Vice President Biden’s family.
This information has been systematically suppressed, however, by the so-called “mainstream” and social media. In its stead, these outlets have notably promoted another, fraudulent narrative from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff blaming Russian influence operators for Hunter’s incriminating emails.
The whole point of having a free press is to let the public decide what to believe. Ditto the protected legal status enjoyed by Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. That status is not deserved, however, by those who instead act as partisan censors.
