For nearly an hour, [Atlantic monthly writer] Ann Applebaum had effused about how important it is to fight disinformation. So I asked her if she thinks the media acted inappropriately in immediately dismissing the New York Post’s reporting on the Hunter Files as Russian disinformation — a claim we now know to be completely false.
… Applebaum gave a stupefyingly arrogant (and borderline incoherent) answer: “My problem with Hunter Biden’s laptop,” she said, “is I think [it’s] totally irrelevant. I [mean], it’s not whether it’s disinformation, or I mean, I don’t think the — Hunter Biden’s business relationships have anything to do with who should be president of the United States. So, I didn’t — I don’t find it to be interesting. I mean, that would be my problem with that as a major news story.”
Nonsense. Back when the Hunter Files were a live crisis for the Biden camp, Applebaum published a lengthy essay in The Atlantic that aimed to discredit the reporter who broke the laptop story. So if she doesn’t find the story interesting, why did she—along with the entirety of the corporate media apparatus—dedicate so much time and effort to trying to legitimate censorship of the Post’s reporting?The Question Anne Applebaum Refused to Answer | Compact Mag

Peggy Noonan calls him “a wholly undervalued executive talent.”
“People forget what a good governor he was …. In eight years (2010-18) in deep blue New Jersey he capped property taxes, used the line-item veto to limit spending, increased school funding, got more charter schools, and got the state through the true disaster of superstorm Sandy.
“… He won public-employee pension reform … despite huge and intense public union opposition.”
And reformed Camden police: “Ten years later murder is down 63%, shootings down 68%, and robbery down 70%. No violence after George Floyd.”

The MSM censored the NY Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop because they are morally bankrupt. At the very least, I will write a letter to NPR, and to my member of Congress, to say that NPR should no longer feel welcome to tax funding.

Good luck trying to distract NPR from its latest crusade: defending the “rights” of the transgendered freaks who are destroying women’s sports–to say nothing of common sense gender distinctions, i.e., those based on Science.
Correction Gary, it is called “the science” . Lol

Notice anything out of the ordinary with the NY Post Front Page?
Rather a complete lack of melanin, there, am I right?
The Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion people may want a word…

You make a really good point here. I wonder just how many of the top reporters and the top brass of media companies are as diverse, equitable and strive to include all people of all races, colors and creeds. Males, females, transgenders, questioning, asexual, bisexual and so on.
That group makes the statement that media companies want Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for thee but not for me.
Oh, and someone else made the excellent point that if you took the first initials of Brian Stelters first and last name you would come up with the initials of B.S. How appropriate.
She’s right of course. Compared to Trump’s mean tweets the laptop is irrelevant.
Watch the video of Appelbaum swatting away the question about Hunter’s laptop. That woman is the embodiment of arrogant, supercilious liberal elitism–to say nothing of hypocrisy though those two qualities usually go hand-in-hand. Take a stroll through the UW-Madison campus and you’ll see countless Appelbaum clones, most of whom have tenure in Gender Studies or some other bogus academic department.
Folks, I watched this in horror. It is from Tucker Carlson titled: Our leaders are defending what China is doing to it’s people in regard to the latest strain of covid.
Chinese authorities dragging people out of their apartments; putting them in covid jails so they are locked away from their families. Killing the pets of those taken away. Beating dogs with a shovel until they die. Killing cats by putting them in garbage bags and letting them die. (If someone even tried to do that to my pets, they would be mailed home to mama in a pine box.) People screaming out that they are starving and that they will die if they don’t get food. People not being allowed to leave their apartments to get food or medicine.
But what will we hear from our government or our press about what is going on in China?
Is this what our leaders want for us?
Since the Biden family has had extensive dealings with Communist China, what did Hunter and more importantly Joe Biden know about covid before it became a pandemic?
Are we as Americans willing to give up our freedoms in order to prevent a pandemic that may or not come upon us?
Are we as Americans willing to give up our second amendment rights in order to defend ourselves against the tyrannical excess of government control over us?
To those in leadership positions all over the world. The book of Mark says the following:
“For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul?”
When you die, you will stand before Almighty God, with the souls of those you put to death accusing you of being the one that put them to death, you will have to ask God for His mercy.
Good luck with that.
