Flashback: CNNE dismisses explosive NYP story on Hunter Biden

What now New York Times Hunter considers Biden’s infamous laptop content appropriate for verification and confirms reports New York PostIt is important to review how CNN En Español, among many other media outlets, downplayed the news just two weeks before the 2020 presidential election to help and urge Big Tech to suppress information that could cause serious harm to Joe Biden.

See how presenter Juan Carlos Lopez closed this report on October 20, 2020, five days later Post Broke the news and suspended the Twitter media account:

Juan Carlos Lopez, Host, Direct USA: Crime would be to report defamatory information. Crime will not work for us. President Trump may be angry, he may be angry, but if the information is not verifiable it cannot be disclosed. There is debate about freedom of expression, and those who think they can say what they want and they can say it. But we, as a media outlet, can only report and disclose the information we verify – it would be irresponsible not to do so. For this reason, no matter how many attacks come from the President, this information is going to be dubious and there is no more credibility.

As we mentioned then, Lopez didn’t even report the laptop directly. Instead, he included it in an unrelated report on Russian hacking, using “Russian confusion” as a defense against explosive news. In fact, Lopez cited “Eastern European” evidence in some of Biden’s laptop documents as evidence of fraud, and not evidence of Biden’s treatment of Burisma.

One and a half years have passed and Joe Biden is now safely in the White House, largely thanks to the organized repression of this story. What now Times If you consider examining the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop, we hope that Lopez will issue a correction in the air and report everything that happened.

Juan Carlos Lopez: And the judiciary has issued a stern warning to Russia for its cyber activities at a time when the FBI is investigating whether the release of the alleged emails from the son of former Vice President Joe Biden is part of a Russian misleading propaganda. And now of course, we go straight to the news.

A press conference was held at the Judiciary on Monday. They are officers of both the judiciary and its agency, the FBI. Federal state police have announced they will file charges against six members of Russia’s military intelligence service, known as the GRU. Are they accused? Although they have been accused of being behind cyber attacks against the interests of other countries, it is against the interests of other countries, but according to the information, they have infected the United States. The warning, sent by a top Justice Department official, was clear.

We’re going to hear a word, let’s go next with the detailed report these individuals are accused of.

John Demers: No country has ever used its cyber power as a weapon, as maliciously and irresponsibly as Russia, deliberately inflicting parallel damage with the manifestation of hatred to gain small strategic advantage. The defendants in this case are all members of the military unit 74455 of the Russian Intelligence Directorate, known as the GRU. The department previously accused members of the same unit of their role in Russia’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 US election, known to cyber security researchers as “sandworm”. The selection of a group of sophisticated hackers dedicated to sabotaging the so-called enemies or critics of the Russian Federation was part of the ongoing work.

Lopez: And while they’ve reiterated that the allegations have nothing to do with the 2020 election, it’s still worth noting that at a time when the FBI is investigating Does not show), well, they are currently announcing charges against members of the Russian intelligence against the same unit that interfered in the 2016 presidential election.

But let’s review this allegation with emails about an alleged computer that would show an act of corruption which, while reading the material, which they say is real but not verified, shows absolutely nothing.

On October 14, the New York Post, owned by tycoon Rupert Murdoch, who also owns the Fox News Network, described it as exclusive to Hunter Biden and that the content they claimed came from his personal computer. According to the version, Joe Biden, a former vice president who owns a computer repair business in Delaware, claims to be from a state where the owner is also legally blind – from someone he believes Hunter Biden … he can’t guarantee, Hunter Biden. Living in California, a laptop, it was in April 2019. According to the man, the person who left the computer disappeared and the machine became his after 90 days of possession and without any response from the owner. He said he notified the FBI, who at first ignored his request, but then asked for a copy of the contents of the hard drive and later returned with a court order and took the computer. But the man, extremely cautious, made a copy of the material and gave it to a lawyer for Rudy Giuliani, an adviser to President Donald Trump and a former personal lawyer. Let’s go. Rudy Giuliani, a key figure in the effort to pressure the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into Joe Biden and his son Hunter, and the same Rudy Giuliani who called for President Trump to be impeached by the House of Representatives but acquitted by the Senate, has received a hard drive with personal information. , Allegations from Hunter Biden. There are more. Steve Bannon, a former adviser to President Trump and publisher of a conservative media outlet, has been released on bail on charges of fraud in an attempt to build a private border wall. They raised about 25 25 million, and the chargesheet says they used the funds to support their luxurious lifestyle. Well, as it turns out, Steve Bannon and Rudy Giuliani provided the material to the New York Post and did not allow anyone else to review the contents of that hard drive, which would allow for original verification, which could verify a lot of information.

John Ratcliffe, director of National Intelligence, said he saw no evidence that material published by the New York Post was linked to the Russian propaganda. But Ratcliffe, who took office in May of this year, is a former Republican congressman who came into office without any intelligence experience but showed loyalty to President Trump. This is why his credibility is not strong, even when he works in the intelligence community but the investigation is conducted by the FBI, and it is not clear why he was involved in a biased issue.

Doubts about the material’s authenticity led Facebook and Twitter to limit its publicity, although Twitter later changed its position.

The material contains an alleged email showing that Hunter Biden, according to this version, introduced Vice President Biden to one of his partners at the White House or from a Ukrainian firm in the White House complex. The Biden Campaign, after reviewing the documents, says that the date does not match and that the email does not contain the original information such as the date, the source, it is also known that many documents were created in Eastern Europe, documents were distributed and that they were on that computer. There are many doubts. Of course, President Trump is angry and upset that it is not being promoted, which would be a campaign strategy very close to the election. In order not to follow the line of this edition, he mentioned this to the press yesterday in the usual uncompromising condition.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: They caught you, read your laptop and you know who the culprit is, you are a criminal for not reporting it. He is a criminal for not reporting. Tell me something about yourself. Joe Biden is a criminal, he has been a criminal for a long time and you and the media are guilty of not reporting him.

LOPEZ: It would be a crime to report defamatory information. Crime will not work for us. President Trump may be angry, he may be angry, but if the information is not verifiable it cannot be disclosed. There is debate about freedom of expression, and those who think they can say what they want and they can say it. But we, as a media outlet, can only report and disclose the information we verify – it would be irresponsible not to do so. For this reason, no matter how many attacks come from the President, this information is going to be dubious and there is no more credibility.
