Here‚Äôs one of those head-scratchers for you. Remember when the contents of that laptop that Hunter Biden supposedly abandoned at a computer repair shop made the New York Post? And then how Twitter literally blocked URLs linking to the story and labeled it ‚Äúpotentially harmful‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúunsafe‚ÄĚ? And then how Twitter locked the New York Post out of its Twitter account for weeks because it wouldn‚Äôt delete its tweets about the story? And how NPR released a statement saying flat-out that they weren‚Äôt going to acknowledge it?
The Daily Beast‚Äôs Sam Stein is reporting that according to Biden campaign metrics, there was even more online chatter about the Hunter Biden emails than about Hillary Clinton‚Äôs emails in the run-up to the 2016 election, and yet, for some reason, the Hunter Biden story was never picked up by the mainstream media.
According to Biden campaign metrics, online chatter about the Hunter Biden story during the election‚Äôs last week was greater than it was around Hillary‚Äôs emails during last month of ‚Äô16. The difference: it never spilled over into mainstream outlets. https://t.co/6zYPVfo0K8

Great way to say "we successfully ignored it".

Media was 100% protecting Biden from that story.

Almost as if the entire media was running defense for the Biden campaign or something.

Because media janitors clean up the ‚Äúspills‚ÄĚ first.

Huh, I wonder why.
‚ÄĒ Steven F?? (@SFlipp) November 16, 2020
Yeah, we noticed, Sam. Big Tech literally banned people from sharing the story and Twitter shut down the New York Post's account. And the legacy media was more than happy to bury any mention of it or falsely state that the laptop was not authentic.

If it had, we might be sitting at 269-269 right now.

Remember when BuzzFeed published the entire Steele dossier even though they couldn‚Äôt verify any of it and a reporter there called it a ‚Äúf**ked up document‚ÄĚ?
