Late last week, NBC News shared a bombshell piece thoroughly debunking the stories concerning Hunter Biden’s laptop.

No, not debunking those stories … debunking a completely different one that almost no one had ever heard of.

Why was NBC News all over that story instead of the ones suggesting that Hunter Biden had cozy relationships with foreign business interests that his father and those foreign business interests mutually benefited from said cozy relationships?

In other words: LOOK AT THAT SQUIRREL OVER THERE!

But just as NBC News incorrectly assumed that they’d put any concerns about Biden family corruption to rest by debunking a little-known conspiracy theory, they also incorrectly assumed that no one would catch a very interesting detail included in their justification for ignoring the Hunter Biden laptop stories.
