Two years after the 2020 presidential election, a major media outlet acknowledged that Hunter Biden's laptop was real.
The New York Post noted that the acknowledgement from CBS News came almost 700 days after the story was first reported in October of 2020. Catherine Herridge, a reporter for CBS News, claimed that she had obtained a copy of the computer's hard drive from John Paul Mac Isaac, a computer repairman in Delaware. According to Herridge, the files and data on the drive were confirmed by scientists in Minnesota.
Mark Lanterman, a computer crimes expert who used to work for the US Secret Service, led a research team that confirmed the authenticity of Biden's laptop. According to his firm's findings, the contents of the device had been accumulated over time, and no evidence of its being altered or stolen was found.
According to Herridge, various sources also confirmed the contents of the computer. The cryptic message that appeared after it was discovered also caught the attention of the public.
According to Herridge, two of Hunter Biden's former business partners claimed that the portion of the email that contained the phrase "10% held by H for the big guy" was referring to 10% held by Hunter for his father. James Gilliar, the author of the email, has not responded to CBS News' inquiries.
Among the various files on the computer were numerous emails that revealed details about Hunter Biden's illegal foreign business deals, as well as his father's more direct involvement in some of them. There were also multiple videos and photos of his depraved lifestyle, which included frequent sex with prostitutes and drug abuse.
After the Post first reported the story, the mainstream media denounced the allegation as a hoax and a Russian disinformation operation. Several social media platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter, prevented the public from discussing or spreading the story by blocking the original URL of the story. The Post was also temporarily shut down from its own Twitter account.
Due to the widespread suppression of the story, which was cited as one of the reasons why Biden was able to beat Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election, several major media outlets, including the New York Times and the Washington Post, acknowledged the truthfulness of the story in March.
