The Washington Post just made this infuriating admission about Hunter Biden’s laptop

Published

The Democrat Media Complex is allowing discussion about the Biden crime family.

Press outlets essentially enforced an embargo on negative Joe Biden stories before the 2020 election.

Now, The Washington Post made one infuriating admission about Hunter Biden’s laptop.

The “mainstream” media are finally talking about Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” scandal that The New York Post reported back in October 2020.

Instead of doing their due diligence, Democrat-run media chose to pretend like the laptop didn’t exist, or it was simply “Russian disinformation.”

But now that the smoke is clear and Joe Biden was shoved into the White House by journalists, now the media can accurately report on the story.

And The Washington Post editorial board wrote an infuriating piece where they slightly acknowledged the malpractice of not covering the story while simultaneously patting themselves on the back for being skeptical.

The Post naively pondered, “[W]hat’s more compelling than the assorted accusations about the Bidens’ behavior is this question: Why is confirmation of a story that first surfaced in the fall of 2020 emerging only now? When the New York Post published its blockbuster exclusive on the contents of a laptop said to have been abandoned at a Delaware repair shop by Hunter Biden, mainstream media organizations balked at running with the same narrative. Social media sites displayed even greater caution. Twitter blocked the story altogether, pointing to a policy against hacked materials, and suspended the New York Post’s account for sharing it; Facebook down ranked the story in the algorithms that govern users’ news feeds for fear that it was based on misinformation. Now, The Washington Post and the New York Times have vouched for many of the relevant communications.”

Just as The Post was about to come to the obvious conclusion that they—along with all establishment media—wanted Biden to defeat Donald Trump in the election, they chickened out.

The Post concluded that this “series of events has prompted allegations of a coverup, or at best a double standard in the treatment of conservative and liberal politicians by mainstream media and social media sites. Yet there was reason in this case for reluctance on the part of the publications and the platforms alike. Both had been the unwitting tools of a Russian influence campaign in 2016, and it was only prudent to suspect a similar plot lay behind the mysterious appearance of a computer stuffed with juicy documents and conveniently handed over to President Donald Trump’s toxic personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani.”

First, if The Post had been skeptical about the provenance of the laptop, they could have practiced journalism and did some digging.

Instead, they chose to cover their ears and shout nonsensically.

Also, the corporate press had no problem running with the scurrilous Steele dossier; in the case of Hunter Biden, they had a primary source sitting in front of them, and chose to ignore it instead of doing legwork.

The legacy media’s handling of the laptop scandal serves as proof for the need of conservative media to serve as a counterweight at the very least.

When Trump called the corporate press the “enemy of the American people,” it resonated for a reason.

The Supreme Court leak triggered The Washington Post to write one article that will leave you in stunned silence

Published

Democrats claim to care about maintaining “democratic norms.”

But in reality, they’re dismantling norms with radical proposals like packing the Supreme Court.

And the recent Supreme Court leak triggered The Washington Post to write one article that will leave you in stunned silence.

For the first time in the Supreme Court’s history, someone inside the Court leaked a draft of an opinion well in advance of the Court issuing a ruling.

The leaked draft opinion, which was written by conservative Justice Samuel Alito, appeared to overturn Roe V. Wade.

The leaker, presumably a left-wing clerk, wanted to create a furor among the Left, and that’s precisely what happened.

Unhinged protesters have gathered outside the homes of conservative justices for weeks, and one even tried to assassinate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

And leftist journalists have written one pro-abortion “think piece” after another, but The Washington Post took the cake, writing such an over-the-top defense of abortion that it ironically turned into a pro-life piece.

The Post’s Caroline Kitchener penned the piece detailing the life of 18-year-old Brooke Alexander, who did not get an abortion because of a recent law passed in Texas.

The teen ended up having twins, and The Post tried to report this as a harrowing, life-crushing development.

“Sometimes Brooke imagined her life if she hadn’t gotten pregnant, and if Texas hadn’t banned abortion just days after she decided that she wanted one,” Kitchener wrote for The Washington Post. “She would have been in school, rushing from class to her shift at Texas Roadhouse, eyes on a real estate license that would finally get her out of Corpus Christi.”

“She pictured an apartment in Austin and enough money for a trip to Hawaii, where she would swim with dolphins in water so clear she could see her toes,” she continued.

This sums up the materialist feminist view.

Instead of having kids, get a real estate license and an apartment, and perhaps take a trip to Hawaii one day.

Of course, The Post presents those modest goals as unattainable now that Brooke has twins, which is preposterous.

Kitchener also tried to demonize crisis pregnancy centers for “tricking” women into not killing their babies.

“As the ultrasound technician pressed the probe into her stomach, slathered with gel, Brooke willed the screen to show a fetus without a heartbeat,” Kitchener wrote. “The technician gasped. It was twins. And they were 12 weeks along. ‘Are you sure?’ Brooke said. ‘Oh, my God, oh, my God,’ [Brooke’s mother] recalled saying as she jumped up and down. ‘This is a miracle from the Lord. We are having these babies.’”

Again, leftists believe this development is a bad thing.

The piece also delivered the nail in the coffin to the pro-abortion argument.

“[Brooke] couldn’t stop staring at the pulsing yellow line on the ultrasound screen,” the piece continued. “She wondered: If her babies had heartbeats, as these women said they did, was aborting them murder? Eventually, [the case worker] turned to Brooke and asked whether she’d be keeping them. Brooke heard herself saying ‘yes.’”

Leftists desperately try to avoid pondering this question, but there was no getting around it.

The entire piece is an unintentional nod to the pro-life movement.

But Democrats are so ensconced in their ideology, they cannot see the cracks in their argument.

A Washington Post columnist told a whopper of a lie about gun control that only further proves facts don’t matter to the Left

Published

The rekindled gun control debate has brought out the worst takes from the Left.

Coastal elites are wagging their fingers about the dangers of gun ownership.

And a Washington Post columnist told a whopper of a lie about gun control that only further proves facts don’t matter to the Left.

The Left are resorting to horrendous arguments to push for gun control.

Jonathan Capehart of The Washington Post and MSNBC is the latest to throw his hat in the ring.

Capehart started off his Post column by suggesting he might leave the United States.

He wrote, “Things felt so dicey during the Trump years, I half-joked that my husband and I might have to reenact that scene from ‘The Sound of Music’ and flee the country. Now, an alarming new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center shows that my “Operation von Trapp” might need to go live. The ranks of ‘crazy’ White people appear to be growing — and the rest of us don’t know what to do about it.”

First, there is no way any of these “woke” progressives would ever leave the United States.

If they did, they would only go to other trendy enclaves in cosmopolitan cities such as London or Montreal.

Capehart continued, “Right now, I am defining ‘crazy’ as anyone who believes any aspect of the racist ‘great replacement’ conspiracy. This is the noxious idea that liberals are deliberately replacing White people with non-Whites and immigrants. It’s what allegedly drove an 18-year-old man to target Black people in Buffalo, killing 10 and wounding three.”

Capehart is either ignorant or dishonest; Democrats are the ones who have been making the “demographics is destiny” argument for 20 years.

Talking heads in cable news, politicians, and liberal social scientists have all gleefully made the argument.

Capehart added, “According to that Post-Ipsos poll, 51 percent of African Americans said they have not considered buying a gun since the Buffalo massacre. Why is no mystery. The right to self-protection, let alone the right to bear arms, doesn’t exactly apply to Black people.”

This is a despicable argument.

Gun ownership has continued to rise, including amongst black Americans.

And despite Capehart’s best efforts, most gun owners are not afraid of “crazy” white people; they’re afraid of unhinged left-wing mobs burning down their cities with impunity.

That’s why gun ownership hit record highs in 2020, then went up again in 2021.

In 2020, shops had lines out the door, even in blue cities like New York and Los Angeles.

Capehart and other liberals are twisting themselves in knots to make nonsensical gun control arguments.

Taylor Lorenz got caught yet again spreading fake news

Published

Washington Post reporter Taylor Lorenz has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons lately.

Much of that is due to her constant lying and total disregard for journalistic ethics.

And now Lorenz has been caught yet again spreading fake news.

Taylor Lorenz is developing a reputation for bad reportage and worse behavior on Twitter.

Her latest ignominy stemmed from a hit piece she wrote in response to the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard verdict.

Lorenz accused online content creators of capitalizing monetarily from the trial.

The piece had to be edited three times due to errors, which would be a fireable offense under normal circumstances.

The New York Post reported that “The Washington Post has issued two lengthy corrections to an article by its notorious ‘internet culture’ reporter Taylor Lorenz. The piece, which had already been secretly edited after it was published Thursday, detailed how content creators made out big in the sensational Johnny Depp-Amber Heard defamation lawsuit that ended last week. Two YouTubers, ‘LegalBytes’ host Alyte Mazeika and an anonymous user named ThatUmbrellaGuy, were singled out in the article.”

Lorenz used the analytics site Social Blade to guesstimate their earnings, but the Social Blade does not provide an accurate accounting of how much an influencer made.

Also, Lorenz claimed to reach out to the two content creators, but they both claim they were never contacted.

Mazeika stated, “Um. This says I didn’t respond to requests to comment? I know I’ve gotten a lot of emails over the past two months, but I’ve just double checked for your name, @TaylorLorenz, and I see no email from you…Also, I didn’t suddenly pivot. I started covering this before trial began.”

ThatUmbrellaGuy was equally frustrated and confused by the mischaracterization in the piece.

He responded, “The Washington Post LIED and DID NOT contact me before including me in their story on Johnny Depp, despite reporting they did so…The Washington Post also FLAGRANTLY misrepresented my earnings report and needs to correct it. Social Blade says I made between $4.9k and $79.1k. They ADDED TO the highest estimate, overreporting for dramatic effect.”

Lorenz again claimed that criticism of her work was the product of sexism and a right-wing smear campaign.

But even people on the Left have called out Lorenz for her shoddy journalism.

Lorenz has torched her credibility, and the Post is also feeling the heat.
