As Twitchy reported, President Trump released unedited footage of his “60 Minutes” interview with Lesley Stahl, who refused to talk about Hunter Biden’s laptop because it couldn’t be verified. When Trump asked her why it couldn’t be verified, Stahl answered, “Because it can’t be verified.”
American Commitment’s Phil Kerpen notes the difference between CBS News and Fox News when it comes to verifying the laptop:
CBS: Cannot be verified!
Fox: We called a recipient of the email and verified its authenticity.

CBS is still looking into how to utilize this new "phone technology" that a bunch of crazy people are talking about. pic.twitter.com/MHeJnG3T2M

I guess you just have to WANT to make that phone call, eh? LOL

Whew, someone who confirmed a source? Maybe journalism and reporting are not quite dead yet?

It's almost as if these journalists don't know how to do any investigation

Verification of Hunter Biden Laptop has greater confidence than most evidence
-Verify with Apple Hunter's email was Apple ID for Laptop
-Other parties in emails have their copies or recall them
-Matching emails fit with real world – bank, travel, shopping, meetings, actions

They media can track down some average assed Joe who drives a forklift because they are mad he made a meme but this is too difficult for them?

During the interview, why can’t Pres. Trump say, the Steele dossier wasn’t verified, but everyone went with that???
— John Walker (@jexpo20) October 22, 2020
Can they point to even *one* Russia collusion story – all of which turn out to have been unverified and unverifiable, since they were false – that they held back from plastering on their channels 24/7?
Yet when it's about a Dem, now suddenly they care about verification?

Don't forget NPR's lame: "We decided our listeners are not smart enough to decide for themselves so we've decided for them it's not really important."
— Apryl Marie (@aprylmarie) October 22, 2020
NPR’s just about as bad as Joe Biden saying that voters don’t deserve an answer on court-packing before the election.
CNN: Fox conspiracy. https://t.co/Ha8kgkAeHO

No doubt. Doesn’t CNN have investigative reporters who could make a phone call or two?
