I open today with more discussion over how the Legacy/mainstream media is handling the information dump from Twitter regarding the censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story. As Mollie Hemingway states, “It’s terrifying how much the Left disdains free speech.” Yet, for all the effort it took, they are now having to deal with the story, conveniently after the midterm elections. What’s interesting is seeing how they are starting to approach Elon Musk’s release of The Twitter Files.
It seems they are trying to make it sound like old news, hardly worth covering. In fact, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre used those very words, calling it “old news” as if the laptop story had always been accepted as real and is so far in the past it’s no longer worth discussion. Others in the media seem to be trying to make this about the embarrassing Hunter Biden selfies, as if that’s the only information on the harddrive.
So, let’s go back in time to when the story broke in October of 2020. The big headline wasn’t about nude pics or crack pipes or human trafficking. The first story was about emails from Hunter Biden leveraging connections with his father to boost his payments from Burisma – the Ukrainian natural gas company. It was about the pay-to-play scheme that has made the Biden Crime Family quite wealthy. That’s the content the Legacy/mainstream media wants to suppress. That’s the content they want you to believe has already been litigated and there is nothing to see.
But when we look at the emails about Burisma and leveraging then VP Joe Biden for influence, we have to then look at Joe Biden’s comments at a Foreign Affairs Issue Launch held on January 23, 2018. In that meeting, Biden explained how he demanded a quid pro quo from Ukraine before the U.S. would release a Congressionally authorized payment for $1 billion dollars. The favor was for Ukraine to fire a prosecutor looking at corruption at Burisma, the very same natural gas company where Hunter was being paid $50,000/month to be a board member.
See how the pieces are all coming together. Now, many of us already knew this and have for two years. But, now the Legacy/mainstream media is going to have to deal with it. And, as they usually do, will attempt to recast and shape the narrative to best protect the Left and Joe Biden.
Finally, we turn to Axios to see how they are playing their part already in trying to redefine the New Media. The internet allowed for citizen journalism, where anyone could post content, via written, oral or visual mediums. This was an instant threat to the Legacy/mainstream media because they were faster, more accurate and not beholden to corporate overlords. The Left accuses the New Media of being dangerous because there were no editors or standards in place, but I think we can see which “media’ entity has produced more truth rather than propaganda. The old guard is in a fight to retain their dominance, while Elon Musk is proving to be a much bigger thorn in their side then they would like.
