For nearly a year and a half, the mainstream media ignored or outright denied the authenticity of emails leaked from Biden’s abandoned laptop.
When the New York Post broke the story last year, Democrats, journalists, and anti-Trump commentators insisted the story was Russian disinformation. It was censored and blocked from major social media sites Twitter and Facebook. NPR’s editor released a statement saying it did not want to “waste reader’s time on pure distractions”.
But now, quietly buried in a New York Times report about Hunter Biden’s tax bill investigation is an admission of legitimacy. Republicans across the country have spoken out in justified anger.
“Big Tech’s censorship of a story the liberal media has now acknowledged to be true just proves that a Republican House majority must take meaningful action to rein in Big Tech censors next year,” Claudia Tenney (R-NY) said. “All options should be on the table, including probes into their conduct and its impact on the Democratic process.”
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel demanded “accountability” from Big Tech. Ted Cruz (R-TX) called for firing those responsible for the coverup and similarly skewered tech leaders.
“Big Tech leaders who participated in censoring the truth should answer to Congress and the American people in sworn testimony,” he said Saturday.
“This is just another example of the media being quick to silence anything that would shine a light on the corrupt Biden family,” Dr. Mehmet Oz, a leading GOP Pennsylvania Senate candidate, told The Post. “As Pennsylvania’s next Senator, I will support an investigation into the findings of Hunter Biden’s laptop and any efforts to cover it up.”
Legal experts say a probe into the emails could potentially implicate President Biden.
