We figured after the New York Times authenticated the Hunter Biden laptop computer story that the co-hosts of Morning Joe would finally acknowledge the scandal. However, the hosts pretending that they lined the report totally in 2020 is a quite shocking flip of occasions.
“If I’m remembering correctly, we asked the questions, but it wasn’t amplified as like, in the middle of a huge story like right now,” Mika Brzezinski mentioned on Friday. “You’ll see a right-wing outlet going nuts over Hunter Biden. It’s amplified completely out of the realm of what’s real. And I think that’s one of the issues, as well, too.”
While it’s good to see Brzezinski give her present — which she co-hosts together with her husband Joe Scarborough — props, she’s not telling the reality.
A Fox News overview discovered that Morning Joe didn’t precisely “ask questions” concerning the New York Post report, however as an alternative declared the story a conspiracy.
Here’s what Scarborough mentioned on Oct. 15, 2020, the day after the Post launched the report:
“When there’s a New York Post article that’s false, it’s a lot better for Twitter to let individuals learn the New York Post article and sit there and snicker on the hokie story of a pc repairman taking a look at a pc, going, ‘This sure does look suspicious to me. I’m going to name Rudy Giuliani!’ Let that out, okay!
“Because people will read this story and they’ll go ‘This is really one of the stupidest October surprises I’ve ever seen before.’”
According to the transcripts, the one query Scarborough requested was why right-wing shops have been “spreading the lie” that the story was credible.
“This is what it’s come down to, America! Giuliani is feeding Russian misinformation to Donald Trump, and feeding Russian disinformation to the New York Post,” Scarborough mentioned.
“And it is so obviously disinformation, that the person that writes the story won’t put their name on it because they know it’s a lie!”
The media and Big Tech suppressed a reputable story that will have swung the outcomes of the 2020 election. At least one in six Biden voters say that they might have modified their vote if that they had seen the Hunter Biden story earlier than the election.
That’s what we name precise election interference, by which Morning Joe participated.
