‘New York Post’ Criticized For Hunter Biden Report, Which Was Possibly Part Of A Russian Disinformation Operation

In a recent front page story, the New York Post published a report claiming that Hunter Biden allegedly introduced Ukrainian businessmen to his father Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee. The story was published despite skepticism coming from multiple newsroom personnel.

According to two Post employees, who spoke with the New York Times, the report was released without an author’s name attached to it because staff reporters refused to publish their name out of concern for their reputations.

The Post article claims that Biden utilized his former position as vice president to enrich Hunter. The article cited evidence from a hard drive that came from an abandoned laptop at a Delaware repair shop. The hard drive contained photos and documents that the paper claimed belong to Hunter.

Several Post staff members questioned the credibility of the story’s evidence. They wondered whether the paper had conducted enough diligence and research to confirm the validity of the hard drive. Moreover, the staffers were suspicious of how reliable the sources were and the odd timing coming days before the election.

The president’s personal attorney Rudolph Giuliani gave the Post a copy of the hard drive’s information.

Giuliani explained why he only gave the information to the New York Post because “either nobody else would take it, or if they took it, they would spend all the time they could to try to contradict it before they put it out.”
