Former President Barack Obama was in Chicago Wednesday at the University of Chicago’s “Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy” conference, because we’ve been assured by the press and former intelligence officials that there’s nothing more dangerous to our democracy than disinformation. Forget Obama, though, because the highlight of the conference was a student asking Atlantic staff writer Anne Applebaum about the media’s coverup of the Hunter Biden laptop story, which has finally been confirmed by the New York Times and the Washington Post.

This was the story we were all told to ignore — NPR flat-out refused to even mention it in passing — because 50 former intelligence officials said it had all the hallmarks of Russian disinformation. We don’t think any of them have apologized.
