    It's not hacked info or confirmed misinformation, so I'm not sure why they would.

    You can have your opinions...you cannot have alternative facts.

    Agreed. That goes for everyone. It's not inaccurate to say that Twitter blocked sharing of the NY Post article, just like it was locked down here for a while. And I don't know why you feel the need to say this now. The report from NBC News hasn't made its way anywhere else, so it's pitting Fox News versus NBC News. Both have an agenda.

    Trump and Fox News already rebutting the NBC News story shared...so this isn't likely to go away very easily.

    President Trump’s re-election campaign Thursday accused NBC News of “actively running interference” for Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter via a widely ridiculed report that critics feel was designed to dupe voters into thinking recent allegations that are harmful to the former vice president are simply part of a conspiracy.


    NBC News published a lengthy story headlined, “How a fake persona laid the groundwork for a Hunter Biden conspiracy deluge,” which debunked what it claimed to be a “fake ‘intelligence’ document” that painted the presidential hopeful's youngest son as a bad actor with ties to the Communist Party of China.

    However, the Hunter Biden story that NBC News attempted to debunk is not the Hunter Biden story, according to the campaign.

    Hunter Biden’s former business associate Tony Bobulinski -- who says he was once involved in a joint business venture with Hunter Biden and Jim Biden -- has come forward with documents, including emails and text messages, claiming that he met twice with former Vice President Joe Biden. Those claims conflict with the Democratic nominee's statements that he has had no involvement with, or discussions about, his family’s overseas business ventures.

    Trump 2020 Communications Director Tim Murtaugh feels NBC News’ report is designed to confuse voters ahead of the election.

    “NBC is trying to dupe you into thinking the Biden pay-to-play scandal has been debunked. It has not,” Murtaugh tweeted. “This NBC tweet is about a random document almost no one has seen. It’s not connected to what Bobulinski is accusing Joe Biden of. NBC is actively running interference for Biden.”

    NBC News’ report did not even mention Bobulinski, instead focusing on a 64-page document with “questionable authorship and anonymous sourcing” that the Comcast-owned network claimed was used by “far-right influencers” to “baselessly accuse candidate Joe Biden of being beholden to the Chinese government.”

    Let's be clear regarding agendas.

    Fox skews right. NBC skews left. However Fox News has borderline serious reliability issues, where NBC does not.

    This is nothing more than a Fox News attempt to salvage a failing campaign destined to lose bigly, if polls are right.

    I'd be wary of literally anything Brian Flood puts a byline on. His sole job is quite literally to criticize actual media and elevate hard-right sources. He does literally nothing else.

    Flood is arguing that the documents were irrelevant to the story, except they were the documents that supposedly made the story work. Turns out they're fake. Interesting, do go on...

    He then pivots to the narrative people pay him to write - "it's not over - the smoking gun isn't the smoking gun, but there's another smoking gun!". To wit, he references Bobulinski, whose claims were not only debunked, they were debunked by the very news website Flood is writing for, as cited above in this thread.

    He then just quotes drivel from Murtaugh about the "biased fake news" or whatever the Trump campaign is railing on today, all the while pretending these documents weren't circulated all over MAGA-Twitter, and then literally saying that the media is "running interference" by doing their actual jobs instead of doing whatever "journalism" Flood claims to do.

    How are people not seeing how batshit insane, desperate, manufactured, and stupid this story has become? What's next? Are they going to "find" a dick-shaped thumb drive with pictures of Hunter Biden administering the Hunger Games for Burisma in Simferopol, and it'll turn out to be B-reel footage from a porn spoof of Battle Royale?
