NYT Quietly Edits Reporting on Hunter Biden Laptop Scandal

The New York Times quietly edited its reporting on the New York Post’s bombshell coverage of a recovered laptop from Hunter Biden to remove “unsubstantiated” from its reporting. The move faced criticism after the Federal Elections Commission(FEC) ruled Twitter had not violated the FEC’s rules by suppressing the New York Post’s story during the 2020 election cycle.

Fox News noted that the Times did not offer a complete overview of the Post’s reporting.

Fox News reports:

“The Federal Election Commission has dismissed Republican accusations that Twitter violated election laws in October by blocking people from posting links to an unsubstantiated New York Post article about Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s son Hunter Biden, in a decision that is likely to set a precedent for future cases involving social media sites and federal campaigns,” Times political reporter Shane Goldmacher began his report.

It wasn’t until the Times tweeted out its declaration that the Post’s reporting was “unsubstantiated” that it caught fire among critics.

As flagged by The Washington Examiner, the Times’ report was given a significant facelift hours later with the help of technology reporter Kate Conger, who was added to the byline.

“When Twitter decided briefly last fall to block users from posting links to an article about Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s son Hunter, it prompted a conservative outcry that Big Tech was improperly aiding Mr. Biden’s presidential campaign,” the report now begins.

The Times never added an editor’s note or correction, instead simply updating the article silently likely hoping not to draw attention.

When the PEOPLE OF AMERICA take back our nation from the scum currently running it, let us remember those who worked diligently to destroy our nation, including the top brass at the FBI, IRS and DOJ, as well as the execs in Big Tech (Twitter, FarceBook, and YouTube) and the execs and reporters of the mainstream media.

They must all go to prison or be hanged for treason.

If there isn’t enough room in our prisons, remove the ILLEGAL FELONS and fly them to some God-forsaken desert in the Middle East and leave them there. THEY WON’T BE BACK!

WAKE UP CONGRESS!!! The PEOPLE are getting very tired and very pissed off!! Remove Biden and his entire administration – TODAY!

Why so many Fxxk ups holding office in the White House? Time for current loyalty checks, Is there now a question of loyalty for our Country? Who is running security for the United States? White House needs current security checks on all, too much Chinese influence with those holding sworn oath to serve and protect, too much money, being spread around by China, for those who hold public office, time to find out where appointies loyalty lies for those in office. Very funny that so many decisions made against America, seem to benefit the Chinese. What’s up America?
