Watch: This Should Have Ended Juan Williams Career!
If we held people accountable for their actions, Juan Williams would be out of work by now. However, we live in backward world where no matter how bad you are at your job. Especially if you lie! During an argument Williams had with Howard Kurtz on the Mile Gallagher show, Williams claimed that nobody (the media) never claimed Hunter Biden's laptop wasn't real:
WILLIAMS: No, but I think there's a larger context here, which is that what was this about? What does it prove? Nobody said it wasn't true. That -- what was said was that you can't authenticate it. And then you had certain publications that said, we have authenticated it.
GALLAGHER: The analysts said it wasn't true. The analysts, the intel analysts said they didn't -- couldn't prove it. It sure looked like Russian disinformation.
WILLIAMS: Right, couldn't prove it was the key point for organizations.
Couldn't authenticate it? This is a pretty strange standard for liberals and their Big Tech friends who never stopped Brett Kavanaugh's accusers from making unsubstantiated claims of teenage rape in 2018. The main accuser was lionized.
Then Howard Kurtz offered a rebuttal:
KURTZ: Juan, it is an absolute embarrassment that the way that the media downplayed or ignored or mocked or minimized this story, that The New York Times now says is under active federal investigation for possible tax violations or lobbying violations by the president's son. And they're still not covering it. None of the other networks have touched this story.
It doesn't -- you know, it doesn't mean that Hunter Biden's going to be indicted. It may or may not have political fallout for his father. But when you look back at the way Facebook -- Twitter, for example, said, well, you can't even share this information then from the New York Post."
WILLIAMS: But Howie -- Howie, this was in the middle of a heated political campaign intended to damage one candidate in the aftermath of Russian disinformation. I think we were all properly cautious.
KURTZ: It was censorship.
Even the WallStreeJournal slammed the officials who buried the investigation with that letter:
"Now we can guess why so much U.S. intelligence has been so faulty all these years. Either these 50 or so grandmasters of international espionage are completely unable to distinguish Russian disinformation from real information, or they prostituted their credentials in a naked act of political hackery. I don’t have their experience or deductive skills, but I’m ready to go with the latter."
