It’s been a week since the New York Times published a report saying Hunter Biden’s laptop and its contents are indeed real. Of course, in the weeks and months leading up to the 2020 election, reporting about the laptop got the New York Post slapped with a “misinformation” label and their Twitter account was locked and story distribution on Facebook was limited. Others sharing the story saw their social media accounts get suspended, all as the mainstream media helped run cover for the Bidens by calling the story “Russian disinformation.”
Fast forward to March of 2022, and Glenn Greenwald has an update about those who pushed the “disinformation” narrative:
Total number of media outlets which spread the CIA's pre-election lie that the Biden laptop was "Russian disinformation" and have now retracted their falsehoods in light of the NYT's statement 8 days ago that they authenticated the laptop's key emails:

That was reported by the New York Times earlier this month:
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.
And yet the whole time it was the Democrats (with media assistance of course) who were accusing Republicans of attempting to tamper with elections.
Are there any consequences for domestic media and government trying to influence our elections? Or does it only count if it’s a foreign source?
