Atlantic Lie Machine Tells Students Hunter's Laptop Isn't Major News
If the media's blatant attempts to cover up the Hunter Biden laptop scandal weren't enraging enough this writer took it a step further and declared it garbage, basically. During a Q a writer for The Atlantic, Anne Applebaum, called the proof of high-level corruption 'uninteresting and irrelevant.'
College freshmen reportedly asked the hardball questions about media disinformation and cover-ups but Applebaum couldn't be bothered. What's ironic was the Q and A was held to tackle current media issues of sewing disinformation...
“Those who live outside the Fox News bubble and intend to remain there do not, of course, need to learn any of this stuff,” Applebaum wrote in October 2020, Schmidt read to her.
“A poll, later after that, found that if voters knew about the content of the laptop, 16% of Joe Biden voters would have acted differently,” the school newspaper editor continued.
“Do you think the media acted inappropriately when they instantly dismissed Hunter Biden’s laptop as ‘Russian disinformation,’ and what can we learn from that in ensuring that what we label as ‘disinformation’ is truly disinformation, and not reality?” he pressed Applebaum.
Applebaum ignored all aspects of the freshmen's questions and just summed it all up as irrelevant.
“My problem with Hunter Biden’s laptop is, I think, totally irrelevant. I mean, it’s not whether it’s ‘disinformation’ … I don’t think Hunter Biden’s business relationships have anything to do with who should be President of the United States,” she said. “So, I don’t find it to be interesting. That would be my problem with it, that being a major news story.”
Applebaum's cavalier response to the media's abuse of the truth is telling of how comfortable the media has gotten with manipulating voters. To them, it seems like the need to report news nonbiased is subjective to whatever candidate they support.
