My Opinion – Hunter Biden Laptop Scandal: Why So Many No Longer Trust National Media

By: Royal Alexander

New York Times and Washington Post finally admit the story was true.

Many of us already knew the truth regarding the damaging and scandalous details of the Hunter Biden laptop story.  We knew it during the 2020 presidential election.  We knew it when the New York Post, one of the oldest and largest newspapers in the world, first broke the story, which was immediately suppressed by the Deep State and Big Tech, including Twitter and Facebook.  Why?  Because it not only contained sordid details of the corrupt dealings of Hunter Biden personally—leveraging his family connections with other nations in exchange for enormous sums of money—but also it directly implicated then-presidential candidate, Joe Biden, himself.

 Remember, the 2020 New York Post story contained news of the discovery of emails revealing that Hunter Biden, clearly traded upon his dad’s then-position as Vice President by gaining favors solely by virtue of his last name that benefited the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, and his family to the tune of millions from Ukraine, Russia, and China.  In fact, one 2015 email indicates that Vadym Pozharskyi, a Burma adviser, thanked Hunter Biden for “giving an opportunity” to meet former VP Joe Biden. Numerous other emails refer to Joe Biden as “the Big Guy.”

 This revelation of influence-peddling by Hunter Biden just prior to the election was obviously newsworthy given that the former VP had repeatedly said he had “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”  The new emails strongly suggest that Joe Biden was not only aware of his son’s business dealings but actually participated in meetings to benefit him.   Thus, it is clear that Joe Biden lied directly to the American people throughout the 2020 campaign and in the Presidential Debates.

The Wall Street Journal recently noted that “Hunter Biden spent years entwining the family in questionable ventures in Ukraine, Russia, and China, even as his father’s biggest foreign-policy concerns are Ukraine, Russia, and China.  This history raises legitimate questions about counterintelligence and extortion, even as it puts a spotlight on how honest President Biden has been in claiming no knowledge of his son’s doings.”

But, again, the media and tech giants blocked access to this damaging news about Joe Biden and, only now, a year and a half after the presidential election, are the allegations confirmed as true.  What exacerbates this media dishonesty and complicity is the fact that polling reflects a full 16% of Biden voters would have changed their minds and not voted for Joe Biden for president had they known of the laptop scandal at the time.  

But they didn’t know because much of the national media—and social media—today are not objective gatherers of facts and truth.  Rather, Big Media is the mouthpiece of the Democrat Party and the national Left, and that is why they are not trusted.

According to Gallup, for example, TV news is the second least trusted institution in America, at 18 percent, barely edging Congress.

This media dishonesty matters because tight races in three key swing states had a big electoral impact as “just 44,000 votes in Georgia, Arizona and Wisconsin separated Biden and Trump from a tie in the Electoral College.”

If Biden and Trump had tied 269 to 269 in the Electoral College, the Constitution provides that the President be chosen in the House of Representatives with each state having one vote for president, with a candidate needing 26 states to win and the winner decided very likely by which party had a majority in each state’s delegation.   At the time, the Republicans had majorities in 26 state delegations with the Democrats in control of 23 and Pennsylvania with a delegation split between Rs and Ds.

So, with 16% of Biden voters changing their mind had they known about the laptop scandal, and only 44 thousand votes in three states being the difference between a tie in the Electoral College, and the majority of U.S. House (Republican) state delegations voting for Trump to break the tie, in quashing the laptop story the media may have changed the election result and, therefore, American and world history.

Whatever anyone thinks of Trump and his mean tweets, outlandish statements and over-the-top personality, he left the country in far better shape than the countless economic, foreign policy, and cultural disasters that Joe Biden has caused in barely over a year. 

This, again, is why millions of Americans don’t trust these institutions.
