Bill Maher Takes on News Outlets for Not Reporting on Hunter Biden Laptop Story Until Recently
Edited by: TJVNews.com
As the mainstream media continues to dominate headlines for its tendentious reporting, it appears that even comedians and entertainers are weighing in with their views of how far afield the media has transitioned.
According to a recent report in the New York Post, television talk show host, comedian and political observer, Bill Maher is now offering his perspective.
Concerning the Hunter Biden laptop issue, Maher chided a number of news outlets for just beginning to cover the story when it has been lurking around for quite some time.
The Post reported that Maher said that the lack of coverage on the issue is “why people don’t trust the media.”
The first, exclusive report on the Hunter Biden laptop was courageously run by the New York Post in 2020. On the Friday episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher” the comic said, “It looks like the left-wing media has buried the story because it wasn’t part of their narrative and that’s why people don’t trust the media,” as was reported by the New York Post.
Maher was prompted to make these comments after the New York Times just last month verified that the laptop story had veracity. The Post reported that the “initial coverage had detailed how Hunter leveraged the political clout of his father Joe Biden to make money overseas.”
The 2020 exclusive report by the New York Post was published before Biden won the 2020 race for the White House. At the time, the story caused shockwaves around the world and was subsequently censored on social media platforms. A few platforms cast aspersions on the legitimacy of the story, however, with the passage of time, it was proven that the story was true.
Maher also took aim at the New York Post, claiming that it is “a Republican paper” and took note of the length of time it took for other media outlets to jump on the story
Maher said on his program that “The New York Post got ahold of what was in the computer, and um, because the New York Post is a Republican paper and the New York Times and Washington Post are the Democrat paper. That’s where we are again kind of. And the Republican paper, Twitter canceled their account. Can’t even report on this story.”
“And now two years later, the New York Times and the Washington Post have come around to say ‘okay there was something there.’”
On Sunday evening, Fox News talk show host and political analyst Mark Levin did an in depth report on the history of “the Biden crime family” and provided details about stock distribution.
