NPR Corrects Article Claiming Hunter Laptop Story ‘Discredited’

April 2, 2021

National Public Radio (NPR) has corrected an article claiming that reports last year about emails on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop had been “discredited by U.S. intelligence and independent investigations by news organizations.”

The article now says: “Numerous news organizations cast doubt on the credibility of the laptop story.” A correction notes: “A previous version of this story said U.S. intelligence had discredited the laptop story. U.S. intelligence officials have not made a statement to that effect.”

The 50 intelligence officials who claimed that the laptop had “all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation” admitted that they did not have any actual evidence to back up their claims and did not know if the emails were “genuine.” They were led by by Obama-era Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and joined by former CIA Director John Brennan, two Deep State promoters of the false “Russia collusion” hoax about the 2016 election.

The Washington Examiner called the NPR story a “flat-out falsehood.” As Breitbart News notes, “the Hunter Biden laptop story was corroborated by physical evidence; by public declarations by Hunter Biden’s former business partner; and by an FBI investigation revealed after the election had long been over.”
