<< NPR issues stunning mea culpa after claiming Hunter
Biden laptop story was ‘discredited’ by intelligence

National Public Radio has corrected an online article that
falsely asserted that documents from first son Hunter
Biden’s laptop had been “discredited by U.S. intelligence.”
A book review of Hunter Biden’s memoir “Beautiful Things”
initially dismissed the documents first reported in October
by The Post.
“The laptop story was discredited by US intelligence and
independent investigations by news organizations,” the
book review by Ron Elving, senior editor of the publicly
funded media organization, initially claimed.
The correction on the Thursday article now says, “A
previous version of this story said US intelligence had
discredited the laptop story. US intelligence officials
have not made a statement to that effect.”
Although some Democrats claimed that the laptop may
have been “Russian disinformation,” President Biden’s
campaign, the White House and Hunter Biden have not
denied the laptop belonged to Hunter.
In a new interview set to air in full Sunday on CBS, Hunter
Biden admits that the laptop “certainly” could be his.
In October, The Post reported that documents from the
laptop appeared to implicate Joe Biden in his son’s business
relationships in China and Ukraine.
Hunter Biden later confirmed that he’s under federal investigation
for possible tax fraud.
A Delaware computer repairman, who has since publicly identified
himself, says Hunter Biden never came to pick up his laptop after
dropping it off. He provided paperwork to The Post indicating there
was an abandonment clause that granted him rights to abandoned
Among the laptop’s contents, a 2017 email chain involving Hunter
Biden and associates brokering a proposed business deal with a
Chinese energy company described a 10 percent set-aside for the
“big guy.” Former Hunter Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski
publicly identified Joe Biden as the “big guy.”
As of February, the first son still owned 10 percent of an investment
fund controlled by Chinese state-owned entities. The fund was formed
12 days after Hunter Biden joined his father aboard Air Force Two for a
December 2013 trip to Beijing. >>
