Media don’t question White House Spox who called Hunter Biden’s laptop ‘Russian disinformation’ in 2020

The White House press corps failed Wednesday for the second day in a row to question White House communications director Kate Bedingfield about the Hunter Biden laptop story, now verified by several major outlets despite his previous denials.

As Breitbart News previously reported:

In October 2020, Bedingfield, as deputy campaign manager and director of communications for Joe Biden, told reporters that the Hunter Biden laptop stories were “Russian disinformation.” She specifically accused President Donald Trump: “I think we need to be very, very clear that what he’s doing here is amplifying Russian disinformation.”

The Biden campaign applauded social media companies like Twitter and Facebook for deleting the stories on the laptop — and even blocking news outlets that published the stories — though the stories were later proven to be true.

Bedingfield appeared on Tuesday and Wednesday in place of White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki and deputy spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre, who were absent due to positive coronavirus tests.

Earlier Wednesday, the Washington Post reported that it had checked data on Hunter Biden’s laptop and reported that he had made shady business deals with Chinese companies, trading on his father’s behalf to make millions of dollars. These stories were originally reported in October 2020 by the New York Post, Breitbart News and other outlets, but have been suppressed by establishment media and big tech companies. Disgraced former CNN president Jeff Zucker dismissed the laptop story at the time as a “Breitbart…rabbit hole,” and CNN’s Brian Stelter was among many reporters who applauded the censorship .

On Wednesday, CNN finally admitted the laptop stories were true, following the Washington Post story, which added forensic evidence to the New York Times‘ admission earlier this month, without further evidence, that the stories were true.

the Washington PostThe White House’s own correspondent also did not ask Bedingfield about the Hunter Biden story:

PSAKI also falsely called Hunter Biden’s “Russian Disinfo” notebook, citing a letter from 50 former US intelligence officials. She’s dodged questions ever since, though documents on the laptop implicate President Joe Biden in her son’s financial dealings.
