Independent journalist Glenn Greenwald laid into corporate media in a Twitter thread on Saturday morning, detailing how government officials and media outlets had effectively colluded to protect President Joe Biden’s embattled son Hunter — particularly during the 2020 presidential election.
Greenwald ultimately left The Intercept, the outlet he cofounded, when he was asked to sanitize an article he was writing about then-candidate Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and their past dealings with both China and Ukraine — and he argued Saturday that multiple media outlets had been drawn into the coordinated effort to protect the Bidens.
His comments come in the wake of a report from The New York Times — which, in addition to confirming that Hunter Biden remains under a federal investigation, let slip that the emails found on the laptop he reportedly abandoned at a Delaware repair shop were, in fact, authentic.
People familiar with the investigation said prosecutors had examined emails between Mr. Biden, Mr. Archer and others about Burisma and other foreign business activity. Those emails were obtained by The New York Times from a cache of files that appears to have come from a laptop abandoned by Mr. Biden in a Delaware repair shop. The email and others in the cache were authenticated by people familiar with them and with the investigation.
The New York Post’s Miranda Devine, author of “The Laptop From Hell,” noted that none of the senior ex-intelligence officials — who swore that reports about Hunter Biden were nothing more than “Russian disinformation” — were willing to walk back their statements.
