On HBO’s “Real Time” with Bill Maher, the iconoclastic host delved into the unfolding of Hunter Biden’s laptop story. And it was damned. Clock:
“So, let me go back and mention the beginning of our republic,” Maher said. “We used to have … different newspapers for different parties. They actually had their own newspaper. Like Thomas Jefferson had his newspaper and I feel like (crosstalk: we’re there now).
“We are not?” he asked rhetorically. “And here she put it before me this week, the New York Post. I remember reading about it a few years ago, the New York Post stumbled upon it… now the way it came across, we need to address it because it’s relevant, but Hunter Biden’s computer, which he appears to be in a computer repair shop left behind . I didn’t even know they existed. And if anyone shouldn’t let others use their computer, it would be Hunter Biden.”
“Just for the personal stuff,” he said. “But there was also stuff about, like, you know, that, come on, he’s a nuisance, I’m sorry Hunter Biden, but you are. And you know, you made your living as a good-for-nothing taking money just because you were the vice president’s son and you had influence. I think he got $4.8 million from Chinese energy companies to sit on the board and advise. Yes, that was his passion in life. energy exploration. Hooker exploration was his passion.”
“So the New York Post figured out what was in the computer,” he continued. “And you know, because the New York Post is a Republican newspaper and the New York Times and the Washington Post are the Democratic newspapers. Here we are again, somehow. And the Republican newspaper, Twitter, said it was going to terminate its account and couldn’t even cover this story.”
“And now, two years later, the New York Times and the Washington Post have come to say, ‘Okay, there was something,'” he said. “Well what I said in the beginning how it came to them. It came to them through Rudy Giuliani and Steve Bannon. So yes, of course, when Rudy Giuliani says, ‘I have some evidence,’ you take it with the giant thing made of salt.”
“But, but, not two years, it didn’t take two years,” he continued. “It looks like the media on the left just buried the story because it wasn’t part of their narrative. And that’s why people don’t trust the media.”
Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang interfered in the erosion of trust in the US media.
“Well, if you look at trust in the media today, Bill, it actually falls off very sharply along party lines,” Yang said. “69% of Democrats still believe the media will report the news objectively. That goes down to 15% for Republicans; for independents it is 36%.”
“So this is part of the erosion of institutional trust where one side feels the media is on their side,” he continued. “And it seems like the Hunter Biden laptop story has been buried because of timing. I mean, it came out at the height of the 2020 election. And it didn’t want that to come out in the mainstream.”
So there you have it. The US “mainstream” media rigged the 2016 election by censoring and suppressing Hunter Biden’s laptop story. Left-wing media know that too. The question is: what will the American people do about it?
