As MSM outlets twist in the wind waiting for anyone to deny the authenticity of the Hunter Biden laptop contents (while blurry images of M&M's spanning Hunter's penis and crack-smoking footjob videos permeate dark corners of the web), the Washington Post is advising people to just assume that it's a foreign intelligence operation, and ignore Occam's razor, or two former Biden business associates who have gone on record and provided direct evidence.
Theory 1: Hunter Biden, an admitted drug abuser, took a damaged laptop full of incriminating evidence to a repair shop less than 5 miles from his father's house and forgot about it— Relax, I didn't vote for the guy you hate (@jtLOL) October 23, 2020
Theory 2: Putin did it https://t.co/EVnPtWDZ85
Holding the Post accountable for their literal propaganda is journalist Glenn Greenwald, who not only shreds WaPo's farcical attempts at journalism - but the rest of the MSM's as well.
This is absolutely how mainstream US outlets think: exactly what is said there by Rid (one of those centrist Professor outlets use to elevate their unhinged conspiracy theories with a facade of expertise):— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) October 25, 2020

US media outlets outside of right-wing sites were desperate not to report the Hunter emails and to block their reporters from doing so. So they just started printing that it was "Russian disinformation," knowing there was no basis for that, until they could figure out what to do.— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) October 25, 2020
Independent journalists like Taibbi, and platforms and outlets that won't censor, are more rare than ever, especially now when most national journalists are in full-on Elect Biden mode at the expense of everything else.

No purported news outlet has worth if it constrains or censors writers and reporters and forces them to advance the partisan preferences of editors or to flatter the ideological presuppositions of their audience. Support independent journalism: only those outlets that are free.— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) October 25, 2020
Oddly, we don't recall the Post's kneejerk over an unverified anti-Trump dossier created by a British spook, which the FBI referred to as "Crown material," being that it was part of a 'foreign intelligence operation' prior to its investigation and subsequent debunking.
Of course, in the fullness of time it turned out to be a domestic hit-job with significant foreign assistance.
Joe Biden & surrogates are lying. On 2/2/16, Ukrainian prosecutor seizes property of Burisma owner, so he's clearly under investigation. For next two weeks, Biden repeatedly calls Ukrainian president, who eventually fires prosecutor.

And of course, social media platforms' masks are all the way off in terms of suppressing a story which would damage their favored candidate.
